An advisor will get to know and consider everyone’s wants and needs—spending time with you and your family to fully understand the big picture, and accompanying you on guided tours of local retirement homes.
Taking all family members’ opinions into account is incredibly important, especially when:
siblings are having a hard time coming to an agreement about where Mom or Dad will live; or
the senior has difficulty communicating due to health problems such as dementia or isn’t used to being heard within their family unit.
Ultimately, by listening to all involved parties, a retirement residence advisor can be a solid support for you and your loved one.
Why? Because you end up with a much more accurate home choice and a smoother transition for your loved one than if you were to do the searching process alone! You get a choice of the best options that have everything you look for in a retirement residence.
