About the Book
Where should senior citizens live? Both seniors and adult children will
learn how to decide about staying in the current home with modifications or
moving to more appropriate housing like retirement communities or assisted
living facilities. For seniors, it validates your self-worth and guides you
through each stage.
For the adult children, it teaches you how to direct your parent into
finding the safest possible housing. By learning about these topics of
modifying the current home or deciding to move, doing the homework, learning
about the many housing choices, having the interview, downsizing, moving in,
and acclimating, you will have the keys to successful senior living.
Both generations should participate in the conversation that flows from “I
am not ready” to “I do not want to move” to “I am not sure” to the realization
of “I love it here.”
I have the perfect solution to the dilemma of senior housing: Do something.
This book explains to seniors and adult children how to make the decisions
related either to staying in the current home with modifications or to moving
to more appropriate housing.
The classic example of getting old and having a declining memory revolves
around losing one's keys. For those of us who have spent time searching for
them, we come to the realization that we should be more organized and put the
keys in the same place each time. I am offering ways for all of you to
restructure your thought processes regarding the senior housing choices, so
that when you are presented with actual new keys or the symbolic key of
crossing the threshold to a new place, you will feel as though you are
organized and that you are in control of your situation within new boundaries.
Through my professional expertise as the director of a senior citizen
apartment building and my personal experience with my aging parents, I am able
to provide you with clear choices and real-life anecdotes to show you how to
evaluate the current living situation and plan for the future. I demonstrate
what you all can do to make the housing choice successful.
This Book is For You and Your Family
As most of the 60 million baby boomers find themselves needing to deal with
their aging parents, the dilemma of senior housing can be overwhelming. Where
is it safe for your parent to live? How can you help to direct your parent into
making the proper decisions as to staying in his current home or moving to a
higher level of care? For seniors yourselves, you need to know what to expect
if you stay in your own home or if you move to an unfamiliar place. Since I
have been on the inside as a professional and as the daughter and daughter-in-law
of those who needed and found proper housing, I know that these ideas are
helpful and consoling. Furthermore, this book will serve as a resource for the
directors and staff of senior facilities, because I give informative examples
of how a housing interview should and should not be conducted and what makes a
