How Can I Help My Family Understand the Reasons for My Move?
It goes without saying – moving from your present home to a senior living community is a big decision. In many ways, it’s a family decision that affects not only you – but your loved ones, too. That’s why it’s important that your family members are fully on board and support you in the decision you make. Talk it over with your family. Discuss candidly the primary reasons why you are considering a move (e.g. health concerns, household chores and home maintenance, desire for friends and companionship). Your transition will be made easier by ensuring your family’s questions are answered, and they are well-informed. Offer them a tour of WindsorMeade. Let them meet our staff members and residents and hear first-hand how supportive everyone is and how satisfied current residents are. These testimonies will go a long way toward easing your loved ones’ concerns and convincing them you are making the right move. Above all, remember that your children and other family members love and care about you. Your happiness and well-being are their utmost concerns. When they see you are confident about your future, they will be confident – and supportive, too.
