North Georgia Senior Living: Losing Quality Of Life

Lifestyle
ready, quality

With a rainy forecast, Jessi and BKP talk about the river and the quality of the outdoor activities they could attend since the rain stopped before the morning. And Jessi recalls an inspirational moment she noticed as a Senior Concierge.

However, the real issue of the day arises as the two ask one of the most important questions in senior care. “When is the right time?”

The question leaves a blank in the mind, such a large question amid someone’s entire life, looking for the right time to seize an opportunity, to make a change, to venture out on a new adventure, or so many others. But with Jessi, the question becomes when is the right time to transition to a senior living facility?

As so many think a senior facility means a drop in quality of life, Jessi talks about the details of that transition and the regrets of some who have to attempt it “last minute.” She says there is not crystal ball to foresee the time to start preparing. The two ideas are intertwined however. Taking time to understand the quality of life can help you understand the need for a senior living facility to maintain that quality.

Maintaining the conversations and a real assessment can make sure you don’t miss the opportunity and end up with regrets because the quality of life has degraded further than a Senior Living Facility can care for and provide for that need.

The stumbling block to that is the unwillingness to see one’s parent as aging or at a point where they are too tired to maintain a house.

Jessi also talks about her personal experience in the industry and the “blessing and curse” that it provides. It provides more awareness as she sees the changes and is more sensitive to those needs. Yet, it also highlights each stage of change and aging signs in one’s self, one’s family, and all branches of the family.

North Georgia Senior Living: What Does Ready Look Like?

Lifestyle
ready, quality

BKP and Jessi Barton start the conversation for you this week about being ready. Looking at the “next transition” in life, the discussion becomes not if, but when. A next transition is always on the horizon at any stage of life.

With no end in sight for the pandemic, today becomes the time for many as they begin to think that now is the time to act. People also say that transitioning into Senior Living is something they wish they hadn’t waited on.

Jessi Barton touches on increases in Life Expectancy for people in Senior Living. Tales come from developing relationships to having more interactions through events and community supports. Studies show support for the idea of community as a major influence in that area.

Fear and uncertainty can be barriers there, and it can create a divide as maybe families are ready, but the senior isn’t. Jassi explains that the important question to ask is, “What does ready look like?”

Some may not have answers. Some may not have thought about it. If we focus so hard on the ‘what ifs’ and horror stories unintentionally. That only creates stress and anxiety.

Focusing on the memories, processing through the sentimentality. People want the feeling of “home.”

It comes back to an old cliche that still holds firmly true today. “You make a home, a house is just a structure.”

North Georgia Senior Living: Waiting To Press Go

Lifestyle

Jessi Barton joins the Friday show to discuss safe environments amid the virus. Cameron Hall is loosening some restrictions while adhering to guidelines. Despite not being back to “normal,” Jessi talks about their window visits and medical care. With a light of hope for the future, she talks about taking the small steps towards that, but residents are still waiting to press the go button on outdoor visits and in person visits without glass in between.

She touches on state guidelines and restrictions and how Cameron Hall in Ellijay is addressing state as well as local county issues while focusing on the five dimensions of wellness; physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social.

Focusing on wellness instead of care, Jessi takes us through the struggles of focusing on the dimensions of wellness in new ways and provide these needs for each individual resident. It is a balance as we all continue treating elders “like fine china.”
