As we count down the days to Christmas, many families are asking themselves, “Should we go visit Mom or Dad at their community or bring them home for the day?” Listen in as our experts, Bernie Cavis and Paula Harder discuss this topic.
Every family’s situation is different. It might help to yourself:
- Where would Mom or Dad feel most comfortable?
- How long can Mom or Dad be engaged before getting tired?
- What will the atmosphere in our house be like?
- Will I have a quiet place for Mom or Dad to rest?
For some families, celebrating the holidays at their parents’ assisted living or memory care neighborhood is a great fit. The staff is to help with their physical needs. There are celebrations, and this has most likely become the place that Mom or Dad feel most at home.
