Moving your loved one to an assisted living facility can be stressful but Warm Heart Family Assistance Living can make sure it is a smooth and stress free transition. Warm Heart takes care of this transition to make sure you don’t have to worry about it.
- Pack in advance- If you begin packing well before you need to move it will give you more time to make decisions about what you would like to keep and how your items will be managed.
- Learn about your new home- If you know what to expect it will be easier to move into an assisted living with confidence. Read any materials about the complex and contact the staff to answer any other questions you might have.
- Keep busy- You might be tempted to take some time to stay in your apartment once you move, but making the effort to get out and get to know the others in your complex will help you feel more comfortable in your new space. Explore your new home and try out the activities that are available.
- Take it easy- Everyone handles change in a different way so do not be too hard on yourself if it takes you some time to manage the change. If you think it’s taking you too long to adjust consider talking to your family, friends or someone at the facility about your feelings.
