Has your mother or father decided to make the move to an independent or assisted living community? At StoryPoint we make sure you have everything that you’ll need to know to make the transition into their new home.
How To Choose The Right Community
When looking for an independent or assisted community, make a list of important features. Look at numerous communities and choose a few of their favorites to take a tour. Keep a record of which communities have the features your loved one is looking for. Features to include on their list include, but are not limited to:
- Closeness to family
- Level of care
- Community events and involvement
- Decadent meals and more!
Helpful Moving Tips
Once they’ve found your favorite community, it’s time to prepare for your senior’s move. When moving to an independent or assisted living community, it is important to downsize. While he or she can still bring keepsakes from home, try to keep the space in mind. Anything they can’t bring can always be given to a loved one or donated to charity.
Make New Friends By Getting Involved
We know that moving into a new home can be scary. Help ease the transition by getting involved. Independent and assisted living communities offer tons of events and outings to help you meet other residents and make new friends. Check out their community’s event schedule and choose a few activities that they will find interesting.
