Deciding to move…especially for seniors…is a complex and personal decision that depends on various factors, including health, safety, lifestyle, and support systems. Consider the following factors when weighing your options.
• Health and Mobility: declining health, increasing medical needs and struggles with mobility indicate a more accessible environment may be beneficial.
• Daily Challenges: difficulty in performing everyday tasks like cooking, cleaning, bathing, and dressing could signal the need for assistance.
• Social Isolation: feeling lonely in their current situation may prompt the desire to find a community with more opportunities for social engagement.
• Safety Concerns: issues like falls, inadequate lighting or neighborhood safety can indicate that it’s time to move to a more supportive environment.
