Are you an adult child, pulling your hair out trying to convince your parents to move to an assisted living community? You know it’s the best place for their physical, emotional, and social well-being, but they just won’t budge.

At, we understand your frustration. We’ve spent a lot of time researching why seniors resist moving to a Senior Living Community. Through countless surveys, conversations with clients, and discussions with industry partners, one answer stands out:

It's the home we've lived in for decades!

It’s not the memories, the loss of the home, or the years spent there. So, what’s the problem?

Upon returning to their own home after visiting a lovely Senior Living Community, parents may suddenly have second thoughts about moving, as a wave of overwhelming thoughts floods their minds.

- How will they find a trustworthy Realtor - to understand the market, value their home, and get it sold? They need a specialist with their best interests at heart.

- Where will they find the energy or help - to sort through every cabinet, drawer, closet, and bedroom without burdening you, their child?

- Who will pack everything - they want to take with them?

- Who will coordinate estate sales, consignment and auction pickups, charitable donations, and hauling?

- How will they find a reliable mover, and ensure everything is unpacked at their new home?

These overwhelming responsibilities can leave your parents feeling paralyzed, making the relocation appear unachievable. Regrettably, the burden of finding solutions frequently falls on your shoulders, even if you have your own family to look after or reside at a distance.
