Houston has a great number of assisted living, independent living and memory care communities. Before making any major decisions for your loved one, talk to your family and keep communication open to be sure everyone is comfortable with the senior living environment being chosen. Unfortunately, during difficult times where life decisions are being made, families may begin to argue instead of being the united and comforting presence your loved one needs most.

While caring for your parent should be a shared responsibility between siblings, that may not always be the case. It’s common for one sibling to take the lead role of decision maker - possibly because that sibling may have power of attorney or siblings may be living in different areas, leaving responsibility to the sibling who lives closest to the parent. However, everyone should pitch in where they can and all siblings should be kept informed of anything regarding the care and health of your parent.

Consider having a family meeting once a month. Make a list of topics to go over and address any concerns you may have for your parent. Create a calendar of doctor appointments, barber shop/beauty salon visits or any other activities and see what each sibling is willing to take on. Assess any products your parent may need, such as toilet articles or new clothing items and try to reach an agreement on how these items will be paid for. Suggest making a bank account specifically for these types of purchases, where each sibling may make deposits and contribute what they can.

Most importantly, think of making your parent happy. The last thing any parent wants to see is their adult children at odds with each other. 
Choosing a new senior living environment in the Houston area doesn't have to be a difficult process. While it may feel overwhelming to choose from the many options available, keeping the best interest of your loved one at the forefront will serve you well. Always think of what would make your loved one happiest, most comfortable and feel like they are truly home. And always know that Mom's Care Plan is here to guide you in the right direction.
