One of the most common questions family members ask is “How do I / we know it’s time to move mom / dad to a care facility?”

Here are some important issues to consider when contemplating the need for elderly care:

  • Are daily activities becoming difficult to manage, either from physical limitations such as;
    • Mobility.
    • Preparations of meals and providing sufficient fluids to drink.
    • General hygiene both personal and home.
    • Socializing with others.
  • or medical problems such as;
    • Memory loss.
    • Incontinence.
    • Incorrect medication administration.
    • Confusion to date, time and place.

The Vales, Home for the Elderly in Pennington, offers separate accommodation for both the Assisted Living Facility and the Frail Care Facility, each with a “home from home” feeling.

Each facility has it’s own garden area with magical pathways, tranquil atmosphere and seating areas designed to encourage residents to appreciate the bird life and being outdoors, as well as creating a space for family members to share special moments.
