Knowing when it’s time for a parent to consider assisted living is difficult. Whether your parent is living in their own home or an independent living facility, the move to assisted living is hard because it means that parent is no longer able to take care of themselves without help.

Just as it is difficult to know when it is time to move your loved one out of their home, deciding when to make the step to assisted living can be equally trying. After all, these types of decisions greatly impact both the patient and their family.
