General Characteristics of a Reno Assisted Living Resident


The first characteristic of a candidate for Reno assisted living is the display of some sort of mental or emotional disturbance that does not indicate that they are at risk on imminent harm to themselves or others. Maybe your memory is fading or you just aren’t as responsive as you once were, either way you may benefit from Reno assisted living.

The next characteristic is the need for assistance with movement, bathing, dressing, grooming, routine skin care, as well as the need for reminders of regular toilet routines. All of these characteristics show that someone may not be fully able to take care of him or herself without assistance, which is ok and normal as we age. If you’re finding that you are having a harder time with these basic routines then we encourage you to strongly consider moving into a Reno assisted living facility.

One final characteristic of someone who may need to move into a Reno assisted living facility is the need for encouragement to, or assistance with, eating. Sometimes as we age our bodies forget to compel us to eat. In these situations it becomes beneficial to have people looking after you to remind you to eat or help you with your meals.

If you, or someone you love, is displaying any of these characteristics then Reno assisted living might be the right choice. For more information about Reno assisted living contact the professional and friendly staff a Lakeside Manor Retirement Home, we would be happy to work with you!
