Have You Planned Ahead for Assisted Living?

Have You Planned Ahead for Assisted Living?

“Be Prepared” is wise advice. Throughout our lives, we try to be prepared for occasions like moves, weddings, bad weather and storms, and events of any type we can foresee.  Why is it that so many people never think about senior assisted living or in home care until the very minute it is needed? It just seems to be human nature to put off thinking about in home care or senior assisted living facilities. Many people seem to think that there will always be time to prepare for these events, but often it does not happen that way. Even seniors who have been successfully “aging in place” for years can suffer a sudden deterioration in their health or their ability to cope with routine tasks. The need to look for senior assisted living arises suddenly, without any warning, and the people affected are not at all prepared to deal with the situation. Emergency situations in which senior assisted living is needed quickly...

Community Senior Advisors is here for your residential placement needs

Community Senior Advisors is here for your residential placement needs

Aging is an unfortunate fact of life. For some people, it’s a breeze, but that is not the case for most of us. Thanks to advances in science and medicine, Americans are living longer lives, but sometimes help is needed, more help than we can give ourselves or that family and loved ones can provide. Retirement communities, assisted living centers, and other kinds of senior communities are growing in number and popularity. Simply googling “assisted living Volusia County” results in over 300,000 hits. That’s an overwhelming number, and it’s difficult to see how the average senior—or caretaker—is supposed to navigate such a sea of options. Conveniently, you don’t have to do it alone. Community Senior Advisors, a Palm Coast-based organization that helps people make important decisions about residential placement, whether for themselves or their loves ones, is here to help. Community Senior Advisors (CSA) was started by Ellen Brody-Palm, a medical industry professional with over 30 years of experience. Ellen saw the need...

‘Stuff’ the Children Don’t Want

Seniors may remember a 1970’s comedian named George Carlin. Carlin had a famous comedy monologue about people and their ‘stuff’ in which he observed that a person’s house is just a place for them to keep their ‘stuff.’ When the house becomes too small to contain all the existing stuff, they buy a bigger house and fill it with even more stuff. This goes on until, inevitably, the children are grown and the couple decides it is time to downsize. But what do they do about the once-valued objects they have accumulated? As seniors mature, they are often surprised to find that their children have no desire at all to have the treasured possessions they have amassed. This includes not only obsolete electronics or expensive furniture, but frequently heirlooms that have been in the family for decades or even generations. Names like Wedgewood, Lenox or Waterford just do not register with young people the way they did in the past. If...

Senior Placement Advisors

As America’s senior population has increased, the needs of our seniors have grown with it. When our parents were growing up, there were no “active senior communities” or 55+ communities in Florida or anywhere else. Terms like “senior home care” or “senior assisted living” were probably understood as a visit to Grandma and Grandpa who lived across town. When “in-home senior care” was needed, a member of the family visited and helped out. For better or worse, those days are gone. Many or most families are now scattered far and wide, the demands of today’s economy have made less time available for family care and the growth in our senior population has outstripped the ability of families to cope. Still, the need for services like senior assisted living, memory care living and in-home senior care grows ever larger. Many times the need for some type of help develops without warning. Imagine that you, your spouse or a senior loved one suffer a...
