Part II: Joe Morabito - When Parents Move In with Adult Children
May 4, 2021
Hosted by Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP
Paragon Global Resources has provided relocation services for companies and executives around the world for decades. However, Joe Morabito's personal experiences with his parents helped become the impetus for expanding into providing valuable resources for older adults and their families as they transition from their own home to assisted living or nursing home environments. His company not only can hold your hand through the process, but understands what that journey is all about because Paragon Home Resources was founded on personal experience. Joe's account of his first hand experiences with the many stages of transitions for his father, and eventually his mother provide valuable information and insights for anyone who thinks they may be approaching that situation with their loved ones or for those at the beginning stages of that journey. Joe Morabito returns in this follow up episode talking about the struggles and challenges families experience when their older parents need to transition out of their home. In the previous episode we discussed transitions from home to assisted living and nursing home. In this episode, we discuss the scenarios involved when older adults have to move in with their adult child. We'll address some of the considerations and challenges that arise, including the physical needs and limitations of the living space to which the older adult is supposed to move. Joe is a phenomenal story teller. The breath and wealth of his experiences, both personal as well as in this industry, can offer valuable insights for any person facing these issues.
