Assisted living is a wonderful option for senior citizens who have limited mobility. While the cost of this care may be higher than at a traditional senior living community, the cost of assisted living is still an affordable alternative. A social life is important to maintaining our health and happiness. Being alone often leads to depression in older adults. By participating in activities at an assisted living community, you will have the opportunity to socialize with other residents. While your loved one may have concerns about their safety, it’s important that you validate their concerns. In addition, help them move to the new home.
