Making the decision to move can be difficult. Sharing the reasons for moving, be they financial, care-related or other, can help your SRES® provide you with a broad array of options to make the process as easy as possible.
Many seniors can take heart in knowing that their next move is to the home of an adult child. Other seniors and their families face the task
of selecting a home which will meet their needs in terms of care, community and comfort.
Choosing housing that meets your family’s current needs, and anticipates future needs, can be a challenge. Further, it can require a significant financial investment depending on the level of care desired.
Your SRES® can help you navigate this process. They can:
• Familiarize you with the various types of senior housing available in your area.
• Suggest important questions to ask when you’re visiting various housing options.
• Refer you to other professionals who can help you understand and compare the true costs of each option, determine which options
are affordable based on your financial situation, and examine the legal contracts involved in the process.
• Suggest a geriatric case manager to help determine the parent’s needs.
