How To Talk To Parents About Assisted Living

Talking to parents about putting them in an Assisted Living Home can be a very sensitive issue for many families. Children busy running a family and working a 9 to 5 job may not have sufficient time to take care of their parents and make sure they are happy and healthy. Children become concerned about how their parents are going to cope on their own. As parents get older they require more attention and assistance as their medical ailments as well as physical/mental deficiencies progress. Many seniors do not like admitting that they need assistance or help carrying out their daily routines. This could involve dressing or bathing themselves. For others it could mean requiring transport so they can participate in social activities. Many seniors have a fulfilling lifestyle residing in an assisted living facility. They have all the recreational and medical provisions that they need within reach. National Public Radio (NPR) recently did a segment on how to talk to your parents about assisted living.  The transcript of the segment can be found here or you can listen to the actual audio clip of the segment here. Any personal thoughts on what you feel is a tactful way of discussing this subject with your parents?
