Oxton Senior Living's E-Book Helps Families Overcome a Loved One's Objections to Senior Living Communities

New Guide Helps Families Prepare For and Start The Conversation With Loved Ones About Long-Term Care Needs

MADISON, GA--(Marketwired - November 05, 2015) - Oxton Senior Living, a leading provider of outstanding personal care, assisted living and memory care communities in Georgia and Alabama, announced that it is releasing a guide to help families overcome a loved one's resistance to senior living communities. The Insider's Guide to Overcoming a Loved One's Resistance to a Senior Living Community, is available for a free download at http://www.oxtonsl.com/overcoming-a-loved-ones-resistance-to-a-senior-living-community.

Most people don't make plans for a senior living community. Eighty-five percent of seniors prefer to age in their own home, and it's difficult to accept when that's no longer a safe option. If your loved ones are like most, they haven't planned for the mental and physical challenges of aging. Starting a conversation about long-term care is a daunting challenge for family caregivers to face. Oxton Senior Living's e-book serves as a resource to families and can guide them through trying times such as:

  • Starting a conversation with a loved one about moving to a senior living community
  • Planning for common objections
  • Overcoming objections
  • Overcoming objections while moving them into senior living
  • Getting your loved one settled into the senior community

"It's hard to predict how your loved one will react to conversations about long-term care needs," says Todd Barker, co-founder of Oxton Senior Living. "The unpredictability can be a challenge. We hope this guide will help you ensure that your loved one makes a successful transition to a senior living community."
