Making the decision for a family member to move into assisted living or a care home can be a daunting process with unknown territory but it doesn’t have to be.

Whilst the process will look different for each and every family, it’s important that the family member in question is treated with respect with their individual needs and wants considered throughout the entire process.

Some family members may prefer their relatives to take the lead and organise all of the arrangements on their behalf and some may be more independent; beginning the process on their own.

94-year-old Molly Ganniclifft who will be celebrating her 95th birthday in February made the decision to move in to one of Lilian Faithfull’s homes, Royal Court, of her own accord in September 2019.

Following Molly’s initial thought, her children supported the idea and took her to visit Royal Court in Cheltenham to see if it was right for her and her needs. We caught up with Molly on the phone to hear her story and to find out why she felt that the home was the best decision for her at this stage in her life.
