3 Ways to Bring up the Subject of Moving to a Retirement Community, West Plains, Missouri

Many people have trouble broaching the subject of a retirement community with an older loved one even if it seems clear they would benefit from this specialized care. If you introduce the topic in a considerate way, you can discuss it without causing an argument or hurt feelings. West Vue in West Plains, MO, offers a range of care levels to meet any senior’s needs and recommends ways to help a friend or family member consider assisted living.

3 Ways to Approach a Loved One About a Move to a Retirement Community

1. “Would It Be a Relief to Have Around-the-Clock Care?”

For many people, the transition to a retirement apartment or senior care center happens after they have suffered a medical emergency or chronic illness. A residence with skilled nursing care can relieve the stress of dealing with their condition by monitoring their medication, therapy, and dietary needs. It also will provide peace of mind by offering quick access to medical treatment at all hours.

2. “Would You Like to Live Closer to Friends?”

Retirement communityOne of the most appealing advantages of moving to a retirement community is the opportunity to spend time with peers and form friendships. Seniors often feel isolated, particularly if they have limited mobility due to a health issue, and a retirement center makes it easy to socialize and enjoy fun and interesting activities.

3. “I’d Like to Know You Will Be Cared for at All Times.”

Many families want a senior loved one to receive excellent care but can’t provide the attention they need due to work and school obligations. Explaining you want what’s best for their well-being will assure them you have their best interests in mind. Retirement communities feature experienced, empathetic employees who will understand your family member’s needs and cater to them at all hours, providing comfort to you both.

If you are respectful and explain why you think transitioning to a retirement community is a good idea, your senior loved one will be likely to listen. To help them realize the benefits of a move, tour potential elderly care centers together. Call West Vue at (417) 256-2152 for their Davis Drive location or (417) 256-1292 for their Kentucky Avenue residence to arrange a visit. The senior care center follows South Central Baptist values and adheres to Christian morals that might align with a friend or family member’s beliefs and make them feel at home. Check their website for information on their skilled nursing, assisted living, and independent living accommodations.
