ATLANTA–The Arbor Company, a premier operator of outstanding senior living communities, has published a comprehensive resource to assist families in considering, researching, choosing, and helping their loved ones move into a senior living community. The guide, The Journey to Senior Living: A Step-By-Step Guide for Families, is available free as an online resource on the company website or as a printed book through Amazon.
Families who come together to discuss senior living for a loved one face a long road. The decision itself can be difficult, and the process of finding a community, moving, and helping loved ones acclimate to their new home involves plenty of time, research, understanding, and emotion. The Arbor Company’s new guide advises families through every step of this journey. Topics covered include:
- Determining if senior living is the best option for a loved one
- Researching and visiting senior living communities
- Calculating the costs of senior living
- Tips for downsizing and moving
- Frequently asked questions
“The journey to senior living takes time, a fair amount of research, and plenty of patience,” says Chris Harper, vice president of communication at The Arbor Company. “There may be tears and triumphs along the way, and hopefully the end result will be a community where a loved one finds happiness, friendship, and health. Our new resource provides a thorough process for families to plan a move to senior living, from first conversations all the way through to after move-in.”
The Arbor Company is an Atlanta-based operator of nearly 40 independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities, serving seniors in 10 states.
