Although we don’t like to think about it, the reality is that if we live long enough, all of us will need help at some point. That doesn’t mean we are doing something wrong, it’s just a fact. If we aren’t felled by a heart attack or some other sudden, catastrophic illness or accident, we will have cognitive or physical issues—including vision, mobility or hearing declines--that require assistance. At Daystar Retirement Village we have residents who choose to move into an assisted living apartment long before they have need for any assistance at all. Some of them simply like the convenience of not having to worry about meal preparation, housekeeping or laundry. Others make the move to assisted living only when they are already having trouble with one or more activities of daily living, such as managing their medication or preparing meals.
