Considering A Move To A Care Home
Every person and family living situation is unique. For that reason, there simply isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” solution when it comes to dementia care.
You need to consider what’s right for you and your family.
It’s common to have questions about next steps, including:
- Is there a "right time" to consider seniors' housing?
- What types of options are available?
- Does the government provide assistance?
- What is the process?
- What are the costs involved? Is financial assistance available?
- Is there a wait? If so, how long?
- How do I choose the best one to fit our needs?
- Who should I speak with?
