Assisted living services include 24 hour protective oversight, food, shelter, and a range of services that promote the quality of life of the individual. An assisted living facility can be an attractive option when your parent lives too far away for you to provide oversight. Another consideration might be that your parent requires more support from professional caregivers that is financially bearable.
If you and your parents are considering this housing option, they must be prepared to address the four difficult but important issues. One, having adequate finances to afford assisted living, two, losing their independence, three, having little if any contact with old friends because of the move, and four, being able to bring only a limited number of possessions to the assisted living facility.
