We all either have a relative or know of someone that is either in an assisted living facility or getting close to considering one. As we age, sometimes the need arises to have others help us in our day to day activities such as cooking, cleaning, socializing and exercising. While some elderly people prefer to remain in their homes as long as they can, others may be more attracted to an assisted living facility due to many of the services they offer.
Some elderly people have children to take care of them, but many do not or their children live hours or states away from them, making it almost impossible for their children to assist them in their day to day functions.
Assisted living facilities have become more and more popular in the last 20 years, as they fill a void/need for many senior citizens who simply cannot care for themselves any longer. There are different assisted living options or levels as well, depending on the needs of each individual, so it’s not a one size fits all approach.
I a happy to share the some valuable information about assisted living facilities in this blog. The Assisted Living Research Institute (https://www.assistedliving.org/) is an industry-leading research organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of older adults by compiling comprehensive research, the latest studies, and real world insight from experts, caregivers, and seniors into easy-to-understand actionable guides and resources.
In addition, there is a tremendous amount of information for families and senior citizens in Texas at: https://www.assistedliving.org/texas/ that is invaluable for anyone considering an assisted living facility for themselves or for a family member here in Texas.
As always, I hope this blog is useful to you.
