Hello, my name is Amelia. Welcome to my site about nursing homes and assisted living facilities. When my mother developed a hip problem that prevented her from safely living at home alone, we started the long search for a suitable place for her to live. We toured each of the facilities in our area to find the one that felt most like home while providing all of the support and security she requires. Through this site, I would like to help other people weed through the options to find the best possible place for their loved ones to live. Thanks for visiting my site.

Many people believe that senior living facilities are places that you go to when there is no one left to provide the necessary care for you or when you have no one that wants to take care of you any longer. For some, these facilities are where they go when they can no longer care for themselves. However, this is not always true. Senior living facilities can actually be a fun place to live for seniors who simply need a little bit of help with their day-to-day activities yet are still completely active and independent adults.

If your loved one is struggling to adjust to their new living arrangements, there are some things you can do to help them feel less isolated.
