It’s important to consider why you started looking for an alternative in the first place. It is likely that you started looking because it was determined that mom or dad might not be safe at home. Perhaps they had a fall, have a hard time coordinating doctors’ appointments, or medications. The challenges of managing all of this during COVID have increased, rather than decreased. We strongly recommend transitioning sooner rather than later. The risks of at home isolation and decline are much greater than the perceived risks of transitioning to a community.
