Starting the Process
Starting the search for a new senior living home for your loved one, whether it be in Assisted Living, Personal Care or Alzheimer’s Memory Care, can be overwhelming, we understand. We are happy to walk you through this, explaining each step and ensuring we meet the needs of your loved one. Call us today so we can better understand where you are in your search process. Let’s walk through these steps together.
- Before you start looking, lay out a list of things your parent or loved one needs help with regularly. What is he or she dealing with? What are the immediate challenges? As a caregiver or family member, what do you need help with?
- Next, explore various care options. You may want to consider a number of different providers including Independent Living, Assisted Living, Personal Care, and Memory Care, Home Health, Hospice, Skilled Care, and Continuous Care Retirement.
- Connect with one of our community relations directors or executive directors to help you through this process. We work to understand your specific needs and then match those with the right level of care whether it is at a Morning Pointe Senior Living community or another provider. The right care and the right fit is the most important. We understand you cannot do it all. Let us us walk you through the steps.
