Hurdles of Supporting a Loved One in Assisted Living

The journey to accepting assisted living as the next chapter for a family member can be fraught with hurdles. Emotional resistance from the senior adult, feelings of guilt or anxiety from family members, and concerns about the level of care can all play a part. At Parkway Place, a premier community operated by Buckner Retirement Services, we recognize these challenges and strive to address them with compassion and understanding.

How to Support Loved Ones in Assisted Living

There are several ways one can support a loved one in assisted living:

Open communication – Begin with open, honest conversations about the benefits of assisted living, focusing on the positives like enhanced social opportunities, professional care, and security.

Personalize their Space – Help your loved one personalize their new living space with familiar items from home to make it feel comfortable and inviting.

Stay involved – Regular visits, participating in community activities, and encouraging your loved one to engage in the plethora of recreational and educational programs available at Parkway Place can significantly ease the transition.

Leverage professional support – Utilize the nutritional education, counseling, and therapy services available to ensure your loved one’s health and well-being are prioritized.

Each family has unique dynamics, and we understand that. At Parkway Place, we encourage ongoing communication and collaboration with families to ensure the highest level of care for each resident.
