Over a million Americans, ranging from the ages of 65 to 87, live in assisted living home facilities. Considering these housing facilities high success rate, the number of residents is expected to triple by the year 2030. These facilities provide the amenities and help that the elderly often need when their own families can no longer care for them, or when they can no longer care for themselves. 

Moving into assisted living facilities:

Many of these residents either moved into this type of housing from their own homes, or from their family’s homes. Regardless, the transition can be sudden and there are many factors that contribute as to why one would need to move into this type of community, in a short amount of time. These factors might include:

  1. Having to downsize, not leaving enough room for your loved one to remain in the house along with you and the rest of your family. 
  2. An increase in stress managing to care for someone in your home, leaving less time for yourself or your family members. 
  3. Your loved one has lost their significant other and no longer wants to live alone.
     
  4. A change in your loved one’s health that requires the medical attention and care that maybe you can’t provide without professional assistance.
     
  5. Your loved one can no longer care for their own home. 
  6. A new job opportunity that demands relocating somewhere your loved one doesn’t want, or can’t physically go.
  7. Your loved one can no longer single-handedly care for themselves, whether it be due to a health-related issue or something else. 
  8. A change in income, making it financially impossible for you to continue supporting your loved one.
  9. Your loved one simply wants to move out of their home and into an assisted living facility, for their own personal reasons.

While these are only a few examples, they’re the most common. If you find yourself in a position similar to these, the next step is to quickly get rid of the home that they, or you, were previously living in. Considering the fact that selling a home is one of the most time-demanding things to do, it’s more than likely you’ll need a way to efficiently sell the home without getting cheated on the price.
