How can I help my parents or loved ones transition to a supportive living community?

AARP suggests an adult child ask his or her parents questions that might help start the conversation. Here are a few examples: Is your home still appropriate for your needs? Do you need help with household chores? Can you cook your favorite meals? Do you feel comfortable driving? Would it be a great relief to have transportation available right at your door? Are your prescriptions current and are you taking your medications correctly? Have you seen the doctor lately? Do you get lonely, especially at mealtimes?

What exactly is an assisted living community?

Assisted living offers seniors an opportunity to remain independent while receiving assistance with activities of daily living. It is a great option when 24-hour skilled nursing and rehabilitative care, such as a nursing home environment, is not required, but just a little daily help is needed.

Activities of daily living include tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, walking, self-administration or the administration of medications, and more. The staff at Hamlet may also assist with housekeeping, shopping, laundry — whatever the resident needs to keep feeling independent as long as possible.

What is Memory Care?

Memory care provides a specialized environment for residents coping with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related disorders. Therapeutic activities and programs help maximize existing cognitive abilities, diminish anxiety, lessen confusion, and increase peace of mind for the resident and their families.
