Should I move in with a family member?
A geriatric care manager can help with difficult decisions
|Living in your home is making you more nervous about falling when you are alone. Not being able to drive in bad weather or at night makes you feel stuck at home. It’s gotten harder to find reliable help around the house and in the yard. As you consider your next step, you wonder if moving in with a family member is your only alternative. |
There are many factors to evaluate before moving in with a relative. Is the relative’s house equipped to have another family member? What will it mean for the family dynamic? We encourage family members to discuss expectations before making this decision. There are other options that VNA Community Healthcare can explore with you in a free caregiver consultation (call toll-free 866.474.5230). Planning ahead can make things easier for everyone in the family.
