Fall is a Fine Time for a Senior Living Move

Fall is a Fine Time for a Senior Living Move    

Older adults who are ready to embrace the benefits of senior living are wondering, with the holidays on the horizon and the pandemic in flux, if it is the right time to move.

Even when a move to assisted living make sense now and may even be necessary for a senior’s wellbeing, some families are taking a wait-and-see approach to ensure that they can celebrate the upcoming holidays together in person, no matter what.

While worrying about being able to keep family holiday traditions going is certainly valid, there are many advantages to a pre-holiday, fall move that outweigh the concerns.

A Team of Support
For starters, many communities offer fall move-in incentives that can save you money and you will be ahead of the influx of new year move-ins, which means you can enjoy more personal attention from the team.

Team members help residents and family members throughout the entire moving process. From assistance with paperwork to hanging the television to making introductions and answering questions, team members are there every step of the way to ease the transition to the new community.

Senior Living Benefits Start Day One   
Every new resident receives a personal care plan, ensuring that each person gets as much or as little support as needed to live as independently as possible. Residents go from having to shop, plan and prepare meals at home to having a choice of nutritious and delicious cuisine three times a day. Plus, housekeeping and laundry services free up residents’ time, so they can socialize and enjoy the community’s amenities, activities and programs.  

Holiday Festivities are Underway
It’s fall y’all and the holiday count down is on—for your family at home and for the senior living community residents too! Residents go on seasonal outings to apple orchards, pumpkin patches and restaurants, make holiday crafts, sing in choirs, bake family-favorite recipes, host family gatherings at the community, attend weekly happy hours and more.

While families are busy shopping, cooking and party-planning, they can relax knowing that their loved one is engaged in good times too, and that (most likely!) they will all be together again soon for family holiday gatherings…and soccer games, dance recitals and movie nights.

Peace of Mind
Knowing that loved ones have access to around-the-clock care in an engaging and comfortable environment allows family members to step out of the caregiver roles and back into the role of daughter, son or other loving relative.
