Find Senior Care Near You with Senior Assisted Living Care Recommender

Do I Need Assisted Living?

It’s a common question many of us ask as we grow older. Before we reach that point, we’ll often find ourselves asking “Does Mom need assisted living?” or “Does my husband need assisted living?”

When a loved one begins showing signs that it’s no longer a safe option for them to live independently, it can feel overwhelming to know where to turn. Would your loved one be better served if you hire an in-home caregiver for a few hours each week, or is a move to an assisted living community the better option? Your loved one wants to live independently for as long as possible, and you want to honor that, but still find a way to keep them safe.

Part of what makes this is a tough decision is that there are so many different levels of care available, and many of us don’t understand which one is the one we need. That’s where the SeniorAdvisor.com Care Recommender comes in.

Take this short 3-minute questionnaire to determine what level of care you need.
