Assisted Living Facilities Pearland TX
Most of us have various preconceived notions about a lot of things. These prejudices can impact certain aspects of our life. They can cause us to make poor decisions for our future. One of those preconceived notions that could impact quality of life for you or an elderly loved one has to do with assisted living facilities.
Many people have a lot of preconceived notions about a host of different senior care options, including assisted living. No matter how you view assisted living (or how you viewed it in the past), if you don’t see it in a positive light, you may have the wrong impression about it.
Reason #1: You’ve only heard about it third party.
Most likely you’ve never been inside a modern assisted living facility. You’ve only heard about some of these communities from other people. It could have been a coworker, a distant relative, or a friend.
Maybe you’ve seen certain movies, such as comedies or even dramas, that depicted assisted living communities in a horrible light.
If you don’t have any direct experience with assisted living (seeing it first hand), odds are you don’t have truth on your side.
Reason #2: You have preconceived notions.
Thanks to the third-party experience you have with regard to assisted living, maybe some of those TV shows or movies, or the simple fact you associate it directly with nursing home care, those preconceived notions are impacting your view of it overall.
It’s difficult to scrape away preconceived notions, especially if they have been embedded in your psyche for many decades. The only way to truly get past some of those preconceived notions is to visit a facility in the area, go on a tour of the facility, and possibly even sit down and speak to other seniors who call that place home.
Reason #3: You assume it’s too expensive.
It’s easy to assume assisted living is just too costly to even consider. After all, we are told repeatedly in the media how expensive assisted living is as a senior care option. However, the reality is assisted living can be just about the same cost, if not a little less, than full-time, around-the-clock home care. That sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
How’s this for a fact? The average cost of assisted living in the United States, per month, is $3,293 while full-time home care through an agency is $3,640 (longtermcare.gov). Now, isn’t it time to look into this option again?
