Transitions to Supported Living

Inspiration

Moving into an assisted living or other facility can be upsetting for all involved. Sometimes our fears about the transition are unrealized as the new resident is presented with opportunities to be social, relieved of responsibilities, and offered better access to health care. The transition can sometimes improve the quality of life for seniors.  In addition to psychological and health care benefits, the new resident may find opportunities to engage in faith based activities such as prayer services and holiday celebrations. For family and friends, we can reach into Jewish wisdom to offer support at this time.
