Moving to a new home is one of life’s most stressful events. Helping a parent transition from living in their own home to an assisted living community, even if they are ready and willing to move, can be challenging for the entire family. Employing a few strategies before, during, and after the move can help ease the process and prepare your parent for this new phase of life.

We are preparing for some wonderful family reunions! Just yesterday the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) released new guidance that communities like ours should offer responsible and safe visit options regardless of vaccination status for families and residents. CMS put in place some restrictions, and as has been the case throughout the pandemic, we must receive the green light from the Colorado health department before we can actually host more indoor visits. Read the specific information on our Cappella Living Solution's website.
Aging in place, or living independently at home, is the option many older adults prefer. It’s understandable why many people desire to stay in the family home as long as possible – it is comfortable, familiar, and gives seniors a sense of independence. As health, mobility, and cognitive changes occur, you may wonder if home is a safe place for your aging parents, or if you should consider assisted living.
