Prepare For Your Move To An Assisted Living Community

We are Here To Help.

An inviting assisted living community.

Once you’ve made the decision to move yourself or a loved one to an assisted living community, it’s time to start planning the move. With some basic preparation, you can minimize stress and make for a smooth transition to your new home.

Use these tips for guidance as you get ready to move so that you can get settled quickly and confidently – and save time so you’ll be able to start enjoying your carefree retirement lifestyle right away.

  1. Make a timeline and a written plan.

The first step is making a timeline for everything that needs to be done. Work your way backwards from your move-in date while thinking about how much time to allocate for each task. It’s helpful to use a binder to store all the important information for your move, including notes, to-do lists and deadlines, so that nothing gets lost in the shuffle of packing and moving.

  1. Figure out what’s moving with you.

Start with the floor plan and measurements from your new assisted living apartment in order to determine which larger items will fit into your space. Although it’s not always easy to downsize your belongings, many residents enjoy not having to clean or maintain a larger home. Allow for plenty of time to sort, organize and make decisions about your belongings.

  1. Look toward the future.

Having plenty of help as you move can make it easier to think more objectively as you organize your belongings – and starting with items that don’t have sentimental value can streamline the process as well. Stay positive and focus on the excitement of living in a comfortable new space with all the help you could possibly need in the future. It can be fun envisioning how you’ll personalize your new apartment and incorporate your most treasured items.

  1. Get started on your new chapter.

If you’d like to get a head start in feeling comfortable at your new assisted living community, try requesting a time for your sales counselor to introduce you to staff and residents or join them for a meal. Or ask about attending community events ahead of your move to help meet some of your future neighbors. By the time you move in, you’ll feel right at home at your new assisted living community.
