Have Assisted Living Facilities Forgotten About Men?

by Ami Noss

No matter what the specifics of the situation, the move from independence to assisted living can be emotionally fraught for both parents and children. Seniors often feel reluctant to relinquish control over their surroundings and daily routines, and adult children may feel guilty over not being able to manage their parents’ care without help. Yet this stress is often multiplied for children of aging single men for a reason that might surprise those not familiar with retirement home dynamics: according to the National Center for Assisted Living, women outnumber men three to one in the average elder care setting.

Finding a Place for Dad: Top Questions Answered

by Ami Noss

Contrary to the grim stereotypes that may spring to mind at the mention of words like “nursing home,” the move to a senior care community can be a hugely positive move for both the elderly and their families. The health benefits of adequate daily care for seniors are clear: reduced risk of accidental injury, close management of chronic health conditions, mental health support, and relief from the social isolation that so often accompanies old age. These benefits can be particularly important for aging men, who, according to the Center for Health Statistics, are less likely to seek necessary medical attention or to maintain active social networks into their twilight years...Read More

Gains in lifespan potential come as good news for most men, of course, but downsides include the increased likelihood that men may outlive their spouses, or live to be older and...Read More

Here are a few critically important steps to aging well that many people overlook: Develop hobbies outside of work.
