Moving a parent or loved one into an assisted living residence or an adult care home is a stressor even under the best of circumstances. Recognize that your loved one will need extra support as they make the transition; plan to be in close contact for the first weeks and months.


If you live out of town, try to schedule a visit not long after the move is made. You might also enlist friends or family in the area to drop in to see your loved one. If you’re the family contact for the assisted care facility, you don’t have to wait for them to call. Reach out in the first few weeks to get an outside opinion on how your loved one is adjusting.


Of course, this transition takes its toll on family members as well. Take care of yourself by asking for help from friends and family, making time for activities you enjoy, even seeking out a support group.
