3 Tips for Talking to Your Loved Ones About Moving Into a Nursing Home, Rochester, New York

Making the transition to living in a nursing home can be a difficult time for patients and caregivers alike. Wesley Gardens in Rochester, NY, provides compassionate and skilled elderly care in their comfortable assisted living facility. They understand how challenging it can be to navigate the delicate conversation surrounding such transitions. Drawing on their experience, they offer the following tips for making plans to move.

How to Discuss Moving Into a Nursing Home

1. Start Making Plans Now

It’s always best to have a plan in place before it’s necessary. If you enjoy good communication with your loved ones, sit down with them and discuss your options. Research solutions for the different needs that may arise, anticipating changes in health status. Include financial details in your plans. 

2. Tour Facilities

Nursing HomeOnce you and your loved one are on the same page regarding elderly care, gather information about different homes. Prioritize your needs. Look for a nursing home that offers a wide variety of activities and services to fit your interests and needs. Once you have a list of places you’re interested in, schedule a tour to check them out in person.

3. Be Respectful

While it may be tempting to make all of the decisions for your loved one, realize that moving into a nursing home is one of the last big decisions they will make. Include them in discussions and try to accommodate their wishes when possible. Let them handle the final decisions if they can. Above all, be patient and respectful of their emotional state during the change.

If your loved ones need more care than you can provide, it may be time for them to move to a nursing home. Wesley Gardens in Rochester’s Neighborhood of the Arts can give you all the information you need to make a sound decision with those you care for. To schedule a tour, call (585) 241-2100 or visit their website for more information.
