Helping Parents With The Transition
D. Oftentimes, the most important burden that your family can lift from Mom by encouraging her to move into a Parc community before she places her home on the market is the anxiety of always needing to be ready for a potential showing. In a world that finds tranquility in the predictable and repeatable, the need for your Mom to keep herself and her home constantly presentable can have debilitating results.
If Mom moves first into a Parc community, your family will generally need to play an active role in dealing with listing agents and other transitional-related matters, but your willingness to do so will ensure that your Mom enters her new lifestyle with a positive attitude.
E. If your Mom, like many, is wary of the prospect of meeting and making new friends at this point in her life, your family must help her to focus on the happiness that her past friendships have brought to her. One visit to a Parc community will illustrate to her how much our residents interact with one another and how much obvious joy they bring to one another.
What is almost impossible to imagine, but what invariably happens, is that our existing residents embrace the newcomers. Within a matter of days, our new residents feel like they are truly at home. This factor, above all others, is what sets apart a Parc community from any other type of senior housing.
As always, your willingness to be proactive in encouraging your Mom to do what it is clearly in her best interest can have a profound and long-term impact on her well being. By turning her anxieties about the transition into the hope of a new adventure, you can not only improve her state of mind but also prepare her to embrace the remainder of her life with great anticipation.
