Knowing when to encourage elderly people to move out of their homes and into an assisted living situation isn’t always obvious. Lori Garrard, Manager at Hilltop Manor tells KNIA/KRLS News that much of the time people won’t want to leave their home until something like an injury forces them to. She says that people with elderly parents often find themselves in a reversed role, trying to act responsibly by trying to keep the elderly parents safe. She says that although often seniors are hesitant to move, they find they are actually much happier living in a facility like Hilltop manor.
