Holiday Spike in Assisted Living Interest
Requests for information, tours and visits to senior living communities typically peak during major holidays. While spending quality time with family over the holidays, adult children may notice little changes with mom and dad that just don’t seem right. Some red flags may include: a decline in home upkeep, mom’s unkempt appearance, dad’s re-telling of the same story and subtle changes in their personalities and behaviors.
It is common during the holidays for adult children to see changes in their aging parents’ quality of life and to take the next step to inquire about senior living options. Families gather for parties and often compare notes and share their concerns with each other and mom and dad. Is the house upkeep too much for them? Are they socializing and getting out enough? Are they paying their bills on time? Could they have an accident in the house?
So, if you find yourself worrying about your parents over the holidays, trust your instincts and share those concerns with the family. Don’t be afraid to start a conversation. Chances are good that others are feeling the same way. Include mom and dad in the conversation to find out their thoughts, feelings, expectations and concerns about the future.
Take the next step of researching senior living communities together. Schedule visits and tours or take advantage of open houses—like Tallgrass’s Holiday Party and Open House—that allow you to sample the lifestyle in a less-formal and more cheerful way.
Tallgrass Gift of Affordability
