Assisted Living and the Jabberwocky

I am sure you are wondering about the title of this post. Well, it seems that the assisted living and the Jabberwocky are actually more similar than you might think. At least in the minds of the elderly and families, they are both the big, vaguely scary things that make people disappear.

This, of course, is not true. Just like the mythical Jabberwocky from Louis Carol, assisted living facilities are not scary and do not make people disappear. The real fear is often a fear of old age, and of admitting that more care is needed than can readily be accomodated in daily life.

Once you move past these preconceptions, it becomes more and more clear that you are looking at an opportunity to work together with loved ones to choose the best options for care and assistance as part fo the aging process.
