By doing this you are seeing to their best interests in the fact that there will be trained staff that will care for them.
This will leave you a bit more stress free so the time you do spend with them will be more relaxed.
Yes they will not be happy at first but who is when made to move from a home that you have had for years. And a place where you know where everything is. At first the move will be confusing and they will wake every moring having to figure out where things are. But they will get used to it and become fimiliar with surroundings.
If you have to have a creagiver come into the house they will resent that as well and again they will get used to having a "stranger" around. But long term it may not be safe for them to be living alone so transition to assisted living might be easier than making 2 transitions, the first having someone come in then months or a year later having to move. Sometimes a move is easier when they are more adaptable.
Bottom line is you are showing respect and honoring them by helping to provide the best care possible, no one can do it all.
