COVID-19 can be particularly cruel to seniors and their families. While you or your parent know making a move to a community could be the right thing, being apart from those you love can be extremely hard when visitation is restricted. And how do you know if a community is safe?
At Assisted Living Locators, we’re monitoring facility and county infection rates in Middle Tennessee, keeping track of the virus’ spread. Perhaps more importantly, we talk frequently with the communities we represent, allowing us to speak candidly and informatively about what has happened before and is happening now. We know which communities have been vaccinated and which ones have had outbreaks and how they dealt with them.
The reality is that COVID-19 may be with us for a while longer, however the introduction of vaccines to the situation raises new confidence the issue will get better in the near future. Right now, many senior living communities are offering remarkably low rates, proven safety records and low staff-to-resident ratios. It may be the right time to explore your choices so that you may make an informed decision when you're ready.
