Addressing Concerns About Moving to Senior Living in a Pandemic
Even though there is a desire and potential need to explore senior living options at Stoney River, many older adults and families are delaying a move during the pandemic, which may or may not be the best choice.
Understandably, people have concerns about moving to assisted living or memory support in these challenging times, however, Stoney River is taking thoughtful and thorough measures to create a healthy and joyful living environment while continuing to safely welcome new residents.
There are benefits and challenges associated with the multiple lifestyles and care options for older adults:
- Supporting an aging loved one in his or her own home, which may require coordinating food and medicine delivery, cooking, bill paying, and home upkeep – all with little or no peace of mind.
- Care in your home, where family members may come and go for work, school or socialization, which may lead to COVID-19 exposure or caregiver burnout.
- Moving to assisted living or memory support for care, which has its own unique set of concerns that are addressed in the following chart.
