Welcome back to our Rocky River senior living facility blog page! Here at Rockport Senior Living, we believe that elderly care is one of the most important things in life. We know how much you love and care for your aging loved ones. At Rockport, we treat your elderly parent or relative like we treat our own family members. Making the transition from a home setting to a care facility can be a tough one for anyone, especially an elderly person who can’t tolerate big life changes. Rockport wants to make sure that every elderly loved one feels welcomed, accepted, and even loved in our senior living facility. Whether you think that your loved one would be a good candidate for assisted living, independent living, elderly daycare, or any of our other services, reach out to Rockport Senior Living Today.

The Need for a Higher Level of Care

Though Rockport has had a long-standing relationship with the Rocky River community as a whole, we pride ourselves on staying relevant, involved, and excited about all things Rocky River. We keep our residents’ wishes and interests at the forefront of our planning and we love to cater to the hobbies and desires of our amazing elderly guests.

We’re well aware of how happy our residents are in our elderly care facility. But before your aging loved one has had a chance to try us out and see how great we are, we understand the idea of transitioning to a senior care facility can be intimidating and even terrifying to an elderly person. However, as you either know well already or you’re slowly realizing, caring for your elderly loved one on your own can be exhausting.

When You’ve Been the Main Caregiver

In many families, when an elderly person or disabled individuals start to show signs of needing regular help on a daily basis, the burden of caring for them often falls on an adult child or relative who is able to step in and help out. Additionally, in some cases in which care is required around the clock, several family members might share the responsibility of care by taking turns.

 

 

While this may seem like a great idea, many of us know that providing full-time or part-time care for an elderly loved one can be physically exhausted, mentally frustrating, and emotionally taxing. You and your elderly parent alike are both dealing with a number of distressing physical and emotional changes. You’re trying to come to terms with the fact that the person who raised you now needs your help. Your elderly parent is having to accept the help of the person they brought into the world. Whatever side you’re on, this is a tough situation to navigate.

That’s where Rockport comes in.

When it comes to comfortable, welcoming homes for aging senior citizens, your elderly loved one will absolutely love Rockport Senior Living. We offer fun activities, healthy and delicious meals, a safe and comforting environment, and a vibrant and accepting community in which your elderly parent will feel accepted and loved.
