Everybody is different, which makes this a very difficult question to answer. There are so many factors that contribute to the decision making – location, finances, whether or not your loved one is physically ready, and so many more. At Del Monte, we promise to get to know each potential resident, their families, and their individual circumstances to help you decide whether it is time to make the transition – and if it is, we promise to help make it as seamless as possible. Here are a few signs that it might be the right time to make the move…
There are some tell tale signs that emerge as a person ages that might indicate it is time to start considering making the transition to assisted living...
When Forgetfulness becomes more frequent and starts taking the form of confusion: Forgetfulness can also be due to the side effects of medicines that they might be taking. We offer full medication management and can monitor side-effects they might have!
When driving becomes unsafe and erratic: This could be related to vision & hearing problems or confusion & dizziness, which can also be side effects of medications or associated with the general decline in health with aging.
When they are not able to take their medicine properly: Either missing doses or doubling up on them – pill organizers can help but taking medications regularly can be difficult to manage with increasing memory problems.
When they have trouble performing routine activities like going to the restroom or cleaning themselves; when they have trouble getting out of bed; when stairs become increasingly challenging to navigate; when cleaning the house becomes a difficult task. These challenges can all become hazardous, but can be made easier with the help of a caregiver
Apart from the above, being in the company of like-minded and like-aged people is a basic necessity and becomes even more paramount to their well-being and longevity during the golden years of their lives. This lovely period of their lives shouldn’t be lived in loneliness and unsafe conditions, but in an environment that facilitates their well-being. There are multiple options available with us at Del Monte Assisted Living & Memory Care and we would be delighted to host your loved one to ensure this is the easiest, smoothest transition possible.
Assisted Living at Del Monte
What is the Del Monte standard? At Del Monte Assisted Living & Memory Care, we believe in a superior standard of care that emphasizes the emotional well-being of our seniors. They deserve to be treated with the utmost respect. Your loved one should feel like they are at home. They should be surrounded with great company and look forward to each and every day. The staff should be committed, understanding, and quick to respond to the needs of your loved ones.
Del Monte Assisted Living & Memory Care is a family owned assisted living facility dedicated to providing exceptional care to those in their golden years! For over six decades, we have been bringing smiles to our residents by providing an engaging and fulfilling environment. We handpick our staff very carefully and invest in continued education and training. The primary quality that we look for is an unwavering commitment and passion for caregiving. We also look for compassion and patience to ensure our residents are cared for in the best possible way. It can be incredibly scary to trust other people with the care of your loved ones. We are aware of that and as such, we hold that trust with high regard. We work day in and out to ensure that our residents are cared for in the way that we would want our own loved ones to be cared for.
Surrounded by lovely gardens under old California Oaks, our facility is located in the Monterey Bay, an area rich in natural beauty and places to explore. The rooms are spacious, well-furnished, and have all the amenities that are needed for a happy, stimulating, and healthy way of life. Our Social Activities Director makes sure each day there are various activities planned. We also take residents for off-site trips for a change of scenery. These trips give our residents a chance to enjoy all of what the Monterey Bay has to offer.*
*Off-site excursions restricted due to COVID-19 precautions.
