One of the most difficult parts of being a caregiver is knowing when to take care of yourself. Caring for someone is both emotionally and physically taxing and most caregivers eventually reach a point when help is necessary. Placing your loved one in Assisted Living care does not mean that you are no longer an active participant in their care. At Ethan Place, family member play an integral role in the lives of our residents. Information provided by families help us to develop a care plan that accommodates the personal preferences of each resident. Families are welcome to take part in as many aspects of daily life as they like, sharing activities, joining outings or just visiting. Residents may enjoy the freedom to come and go with their families as they wish.
