Transitioning to a residence
Relocating a loved one is an emotional time and can be a difficult transition. Unfortunately, many seniors may have an unexpected deterioration of their physical or psychological health. In these cases, moving urgently and finding a residence is the appropriate solution to ensure they are cared for properly. Making this choice is often difficult and can be a sensitive matter for the person involved or for their loved ones (family and friends). Yet, moving a loved one into a residence to avoid a further decline in their condition is often a wise choice.
Reasons for urgent relocation
There are three circumstances that often require the emergency relocation of a senior to a residence. The following situations could require you or your loved one to consider an urgent relocation:
– The home environment is no longer appropriate: unsuitable furniture in the home, increase in risks and loneliness.
– The physical or mental state of your loved one has changed significantly: an accident, hospitalization or a degenerative illness prevents them from continuing to live in their home.
– The caregiver is no longer able to provide an appropriate level of care for their loved one without having significant impacts their personal life.
