0017EFP120618-095357_UMH_Com_CO-01-resized-600Making the decision to move a loved one into an assisted living community can be very hard. It is even harder for a caregiver to recognize when that time has come.

Many caregivers ignore some of the obvious signs that their aging loved one might need to make this move.

Older adults may begin to struggle with everyday tasks as they get older, caregivers can't always be there to help them. This creates stress in both of their lives. An assisted living community provides seniors with a maintenance-free lifestyle where they can start enjoying life again.

How do you know when the right time has come? This can be a very difficult question to answer because some of the signs are harder to recognize.

Since it can be hard to determine when that time is, we have put together an infographic for caregivers to follow, to figure out when that time might be.

Start by answering the first question and make your way down the infographic according to your answers. Once you have made it to the bottom click on the box where you ended up.
