Learn Your Loved One’s Routine
It’s beneficial to learn about your family member’s routine so that you do not visit at a time that may be inconvenient for them. Become familiar with a typical day in your loved one’s shoes. They may have a certain time they eat meals, take naps, or participate in an activity. By contacting our team in advance, we will be able to help you make the most of your visit.
Patience and positivity is the key when visiting your family member. Whether they are a new resident in assisted living or have been there for years, living in a nursing home is a transition which may take time. Love them, support them, and listen to them.
Bring Other Family
Bringing your children, close friends and family can be special for both a resident and those visiting. We encourage you to take the time to truly get to know your loved one and listen to the stories and memories they choose to share. This is a great opportunity to create new bonds and memories with little ones.
Bring Something To Share
Bringing items to share with your elder always sparks excitement. Whether it is a story from the local paper that you know they will love, or artwork from your child’s class project, bringing items helps your family member feel involved and connected to your life. We have many who visit family to watch a scheduled sports game on the television since they are dedicated sports fans. No matter the item, your family will surely appreciate it.
