What influences the decision to move to a retirement home?

The move from one’s home to a retirement home or an assisted living facility is very complicated and depends on the circumstances, but it is a choice and not a forced decision.  We recommend that you take your time, think, and consult both with the family and with our team, in order make a decision that you feel is right for everyone concerned.

What influences the decision to move to a retirement home?

  1. Health condition - The health condition of your loved ones is the first deciding factor.  We believe that as long as the situation allows for your loved one to remain at home, independently, and close to those he loves - this is preferable both from a health and emotionally standpoint.  However, when he reaches a stage in which he is no longer to live at home, and there is no other solution, it is best to consider the option of moving him to a retirement home.
  2. Economic situation - Retirement homes differ from one another on a variety of parameters, and naturally, money is one of them.  However, it is important to emphasize that because you pay less doesn’t necessarily mean you receive less.  There are a variety of good professional retirement homes as well as the expensive options.
  3. Family situation - Every family has different backgrounds, customs and means.  There are families that have the ability to provide their loved ones with everything they need at home; however, for some of the families this is not possible.  This is not a reflection of the quality or love of the family members.   Sometimes, the death of a spouse or children who move overseas may be the main reason for the move to a retirement home.
  4. Social influence - Society has an impact on our decisions at any age, even the golden age.  Often a situation arises in which a number of friends decide to move to a retirement home together, increasing the odds that their other friends will follow in their footsteps.  Many times, the move to a retirement home or assisted living facility is a group decision made in advance, in order to create a supportive social environment that significantly contributes to the physical and emotional health of all of the group’s members.
