Hillside Terrace Senior Living helps families choose the right assisted living facility for their male loved one.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - eTradeWire -- Did you know that more than 70% of senior living residents are female, according to A Place for Mom (https://www.aplaceformom.com/caregiver-resource...)?

Making the decision to move to assisted living is a big step for all aging adults, but it's particularly difficult for elderly men.

Finding a great fit for your dad or male family member doesn't have to be a struggle! Some assisted living communities offer activities and services especially for men, so you can rest assured that your loved one is getting the important social interaction and medical care they need.

Did you know eighty percent of senior living staff members are women? According to the American Geriatrics Society, "researchers found patients of both sexes most often select providers of the same gender. Older men may be uncomfortable with female nursing assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as dressing or bathing, and would prefer a male caregiver".

The desire to remain self-sufficient, coupled with this discomfort, prevents some men from exploring senior living options. Touring senior living communities and meeting other male residents can help eliminate some of these roadblocks.
