Take Time To Find the Right Community  

Just like you spend time finding the best house that fits your needs, take time to find the right community for your loved one. There are many different senior living communities out there, and many cater to varying types of needs. Find a place where your loved one can call home and actually feel like they are home.

Familiarize Yourself With the Community First 

One great way to make the transition easier is through getting your loved one familiarized with their new community before completely moving them in. Spend time taking them to their new home while showing them around and introducing them to new people.  When they begin living there full time, they will already know the place and feel comfortable.

Keep Things Familiar 

Keeping things familiar for your loved one will help them feel like their life wasn’t completely changed. This is especially important for seniors who need extra memory care. Look for assisted living communities in the area where your loved one already lives and fill their room with memorabilia, or try to make the room similar to the bedroom they are currently living in. This will help them feel like they are still at home and in a place where they feel most comfortable.

Get Social 

No matter where you are moving to, it is important to get out and get social with the locals. Helping your loved one become more social at their new home will help ease the transition process. A healthy social life is important for everyone. At Frontida Assisted living, we help facilitate an environment that promotes social activity and gets our residents out and about doing things they love. We plan meaningful activities so that residents can fill their time staying active and busy with each other, creating valuable relationships.
