It’s time to consider assisted living for mom or dad when:

1. One passes and the other is now living alone

2. She has fallen and refuses to remove trip hazards

3. She can’t operate the TV remote

4. You’re worried that she could wander away from her house

5. You notice she is not taking her meds correctly

6. The doctor says so. They rarely do so if he or she does, pay attention!

7. She’s lonesome and you can’t supply enough company for her

8. She keeps firing her caregivers

9. Her personality changes
