Everything You Need
Which senior living option is the right one?
AARP suggests an adult child ask his or her parents questions that might help start the conversation. You would not ask all these questions in one sitting, but use them as a guide for topics of conversation when the moment is right.
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?
