Posted by Oaks Senior Living

As members of our society age, it will continue to be important in promoting their engagement in social and emotional wellness to maintain their well-being. We know that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates. There are also tremendous amounts of evidence proving that active social networks can help to prevent declines in memory. While Alzheimer’s, and other forms of dementia, are not reversible, research shows that we can decrease the effects and slow the progression through both mental and physical activity.

7 Tips for Your Parent’s Transition to Assisted Living in GA

Posted by Oaks Senior Living

Here at Oaks Senior Living, we know that making the transition to senior living can be stressful for you and your parent. The best way to approach this transition is just like any other major decision. Be sure to take the time to research your parent’s options and help them make an educated decision. Their needs and level of care would determine if they would be better suited for memory care, independent living, or assisted living in GA (Georgia). Once you are aware of the type of senior living that is right for your loved one, help them to downsize. Downsizing their home in advance can help them to part ways with the excess things in their life. Donating their unnecessary items to those less fortunate, charities, or your family and friends can give your parent peace knowing that they are helping others, leaving it easier to get rid of things, thus moving is easier. We also put together the following list to help keep your parent’s transition in GA to assisted living as smooth as possible.
