Choosing to move to an assisted living community can seem like an overwhelming undertaking. However, Cheri Malek, our Director of Community Relations, guides all of the Winston Salem assisted living residents and their families through the process of making this important change.
Be pro-active in recognizing the subtle changes in your daily routine or needs.
Do you seem to depend more on friends and family for simple errands or housekeeping needs? Does your medical condition require more physicians appointments, medications or monitoring than you feel comfortable managing without the assistance of others? Do you feel safe at home especially at night? Is your family worried about you? Many times these changes come about slowly and, without realizing it, you might have slipped into routines of dependence on others.
Sometimes the need for assisted living is more clear-cut. You may have already had accidents or crises at home or you are already depending heavily on the assistance of others to remain safe and have physical needs met. There may have also been a medical emergency which required a hospital stay and subsequently, discharging back home is not the best option.
Whether your need is immediate or lies potentially in your future, go ahead and make that first call to Vienna Village. Cheri Malek will sit down with you and discuss in detail your needs and how Vienna Village may be able to offer solutions to the problems you may already face or need to prepare for in the future.
