Does anyone have any positive experiences with Assisted Living Facilities. Just began looking at them as an option, since Mom (82) and Dad (87) may need a back up plan in the future. I am not in a position to add any more caregiving than I have over the past 4 years (nine years total for other family members) Exhaustion, health issues of my own, a small condo and the need to maintain my employment are the primary reasons. Mom and Dad are doing ok, but both have become less healthy and I can see the possibility of them not being able to live alone in the future due to declining health situations.
Assisted living was suggested to me, and although I thought it was too expensive at first, I found 2 facilities that they could afford and that seem very nice. Also one of the facilities has a 90 percent refund of the buy in price as an option, I imagine that is if the resident does not want to continue to live there.
Any feedback would be appreciated!
