The website Minding Our Elders liked one of Anita’s articles so much that they posted it for their followers.
“Ah.. to this there are no easy answers. There are situations where the need for moving a senior from their comfortable home is not altogether apparent, nor are its benefits.
There is a pervasive attitude that moving a senior brings on Relocation Stress Syndrome and Transfer Trauma which describe the ill effects of moving on the elderly which may result in declining health and even fatality. As such, children face the decision of whether to move an elderly parent with trepidation.
As such, there may be ways to keep the senior in their home and familiar surroundings with a bit of elderproofing and home care, but at some point that becomes both risky and burdensome. Above all, in terms of a move, the questions are: What are the risks? What are the benefits? The whole picture of the senior and their support system must be taken into account.
