The best time to be exploring options is when you are not in a health crisis so you can be the person making decisions for your future home and not leaving the burden for your children. In many instances, seniors find themselves in the hospital after an unexpected health episode and their children being advised that they immediately need to find an assisted living for their loved ones because home is no longer safe.
This puts a lot of pressure on your children. In some cases, because of the small window of time, it is harder to find the perfect fit, the assisted living choice is not always the best choice or the choice you would have made for yourself. It is always better to be part of the decision process, it makes life easier for your family and you can live where you would like to live. You may never have the need for assisted living but if you do, wouldn’t you like it to be your choice.
