Assisted Living and Alzheimer's

Posted on March 08, 2018

Deciding to transition a loved one into an assisted living facility can be a hard decision to make. We are often in denial about our loved ones increased vulnerability as well as their reduced decision-making abilities. Finding support from those who understand what we are going through is best done alongside others taking care of their loved ones.

On myALZteam, the social network and online support group for those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. When to move a loved one to an assisted living facility is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about assisted living and making that transition:

Has anyone moved their loved one to an assisted care facility?

How do I convince my dad with late-stage dementia that he belongs in an assisted living facility?

How do I know it's time to put my mom in an assisted facility?

Here are some conversations about the move to assisted living:

Moving my mom to assisted living. Any suggestions on easing the transition for both of us?

We are moving my dad to assisted living. We know it's the right thing to do, but he will be so angry and hurt. Suggestions to make it easier for him?

Dad moved into an assisted living facility and he is thriving.
