Posted by Oaks Senior Living | 2 minute read

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.
