Couples Living in Assisted Living

This is a sample post pulled from an article…

A situation involving finding senior care for both parents with different care needs can be overwhelming and seemingly impossible. However, as life spans continue to increase, this situation is becoming more and more familiar to those caring for aging parents. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of those aged 60 and over who reported being married has increased over the past several decades, while the number reporting widowhood has decreased. Many of those couples find it necessary to look for assisted living as they age – and they want to do so without being separated.

Of course, this presents a number of challenges beyond those involved with searching for senior housing for one parent only. What if one partner has drastically different health care requirements than the other? How can you ensure that both of your parents’ emotional and social needs are met? The topic of married life in assisted living is a tricky one, but there are a few tips to help you make the process run smoothly for both you and your elderly loved ones.
