Depending on the situation, it may be good also to have any physicians and healthcare providers in this discussion.
This is an excellent opportunity to discuss thoughts and plans for the future. It’s a chance to ask questions and discuss your concerns, so you’re on the same page with your checklist for moving into assisted living.
Emphasize that this conversation is about advocating for the health, safety, and well-being of the person moving. You must work together and approach the conversation as a united team, with their (or your) best interest as a priority.
