Going to a Rest Home
What can I do to make it easier for my parents to go to a rest home?

To move your parents to any facility, it must first be discussed with them so that they are not uprooted without forewarning. They need to understand the rational for the move. It’s also important that you investigate any facility under consideration. Get the brochures from these facilities and go on the tours. Speak to people who work there to get a sense of the place. Look to see if the place is clean, relatively quiet, and if people are addressed in a respectful way. Find out if there is a waiting list (and if so how long?). It’s vital to make sure that any place you move your parents to is right and appropriate for them.
