There are two things that I have heard numerous times over the years- people want to do whatever they can to prevent moving into a nursing home and they want to remain as independent as possible as long as possible. One thing that can rapidly change that is to fall and break a bone or suffer a head injury. Click here for a great article from the CDC on how to assess how high the risk is and what to do about it.
If you or a loved one is no longer safe to stay at home and are contemplating a move to a nursing home or assisted living, a senior living navigator from My New Villa can meet with your family at no charge to review the situation and advise on the options available and costs associated. To schedule an assessment call 440-320-7280 or request one online by Clicking Here.
