Why You Need a Senior Living Advocate



As your loved ones age, there will come a time when their living environment needs to change.


Whether they need to downsize or move into assisted living, you may be the one who has to make the decision. This can be a stressful and overwhelming time for both you and your loved one.


You want what’s best for them, but there are so many factors and options to consider, like what kind of living assistance they need, what place is best, and how to plan the property and estate sales.


How do you know if you’re making the right choices? A senior living advocate can help you determine your loved one’s needs, navigate your options, and provide you with the right resources.



What does a senior living advocate do?


A senior living advocate assists seniors and their families when rightsizing, downsizing, or relocating. They can identify your loved one’s housing needs and offer you resources and support.


With your elderly loved one’s best interests at heart, a senior living advocate will ensure that your loved one ends up in the best environment that supports their current needs.


How can a senior living advocate help?


When the time comes for your family member to relocate, whether that’s to a smaller home, an assisted living facility, or a group home, a senior living advocate can help you determine their needs, manage the move and sell the property. They will support you every step of the way.


There is a lot to consider when moving, and it can be an emotional time for both you and your senior loved ones. In addition to determining their needs, you have to find a new place, plan the move, and figure out what’s next for their current property.


A senior living advocate has the knowledge and resources to help you make the best decisions for your family.



What steps do we take?


Deciding it’s time for an older individual to relocate is not a quick or impulsive decision. Ideally, the conversation starts months before a decision is made.


If you notice a decline or change in your loved one’s health or activity, it’s time to start thinking about what’s next. A senior living advocate can help you plan ahead.


First, you and your senior living advocate will determine what type of living situation is best for your loved one. Then, you will develop a plan for the move. A senior living advocate can provide you with resources like placement services, home care services, estate sale facilitators, and elder law attorneys.
