Myths About Assisted Living 3



Myth #3- My loved one won’t like it at an assisted living community

Your loved one may have a hard time imagining themselves in an assisted living, as they have viewed it as a dated model.   As they learn more about what it has to offer and that is a way to simplify their lives, they may come around to it.  This is a conversation that usually takes some talking about to get comfortable with.  Our staff from concierge, to the kitchen, housekeeping, maintenance, wellness and management work to welcome each new resident and help them get comfortable in their new home. Most residents come to us for safety and they realize that they are becoming more independent as they move from maintaining their daily lives, to enjoying the free time they have.
