Many times, the decision to move to a senior living community involves the whole family. The person moving to a senior community wants to involve members of the family for support and affirmation on their decision. Adult children often want to be part of the process, assisting with research and offering guidance. They want to be assured their parents make the optimum move to a community that is safe, secure and where their parent or parents can enjoy an independent, vibrant life.
