Leading Senior Care Provider Releases Guide to Assisted Living Decisions

Senior Solutions Management Group Publishes Resource for Families Considering Care Options for Their Loved Ones

SUWANEE, GA--(Marketwired - Dec 20, 2013) - Senior Solutions Management Group (SSMG), a leading provider of superior-quality senior care across the Southeast, today announced it is publishing a new resource to provide families information as they consider the options involved in choosing senior care. The e-book, Am I Making the Right Senior Care Decision? A Complete Guide for Caregivers, is available as a free download at http://www.ssmgrp.com/am-i-making-the-right-senior-care-decision-a-complete-guide-for-caregivers.

Watching loved ones grow older and slow down physically and mentally can be difficult for adult children of senior parents. Though many changes are normal parts of the aging process, others are more serious and can put affected seniors in danger. The decision to place a parent into assisted living is an important, careful process, and this e-book guides caregivers through every crucial step, including:

Evaluating your loved one, talking with him or her about a possible move to assisted living, and coping with the emotional changes that come with such a move

  • An awareness of your parent's physical and emotional needs
  • An understanding of the financial and housing options available

The new guide also provides a checklist to evaluate a senior's need for assisted living, five key considerations of senior care, and financing and insurance options.

"Senior care decisions are made every day," says Todd Barker, president of Senior Solutions Management Group. "We want to be a resource to help families feel more confident in making those decisions and supporting your loved ones in assisted living. If senior care is the best option, there are communities and professionals, such as the 12 communities managed by Senior Solutions, that provide a safe and caring environment."
