Make a List and Check It Twice

Holiday gatherings present a great opportunity to talk with your family about any challenges you or your spouse may be experiencing. Big or small–they may be negatively impacting your quality of life.

To prepare for a conversation, it can be helpful to create a list to share when the time is right. If you or your spouse could benefit from help with the following tasks, it might be time to consider a move to a supportive community like Duncaster:

Housekeeping: You struggle to keep up with chores and yardwork. Your house isn’t as clean as it used to be or you’re no longer happy with its appearance.

Cooking: Preparing food is difficult or unenjoyable. There’s expired food in your refrigerator and your diet has little or no variety.

Personal Care: You haven’t been able to keep up your appearance. Perhaps you feel depressed, lack the motivation for self-care, or caregiving for your spouse has left you with no energy to care for yourself.

Medical or Memory Concerns: You or your spouse are having difficulties keeping up with medications or are forgetting important doctors’ appointments.

Financial Chores: You are confused when paying bills, have trouble remembering when payments are due, or have missed payments that you used to make in a timely manner.

Driving Difficulties: You no longer feel confident behind the wheel of your car, so you avoid driving at night and find yourself skipping events and gatherings.

Social Distance: You feel increasingly sad or lonely, or a decrease in your normal social activity has left you feeling depressed.

A supportive Life Plan Community like Duncaster can help address these and many other daily concerns. Our comfortable residential campus allows older adults to remain in control of their lives while enjoying a vibrant, relaxed retirement lifestyle. Duncaster residents live their lives confidently, knowing that a supportive continuum is there to help no matter what arises.
