The decision to move into an independent living facility
is an important one that should be made by the prospective resident with help from family members. If your parent or other loved one is transitioning from living on his or her own to living in a retirement community, the following considerations can help make it a smooth and stress-free experience.
- Allow Ample Time for Moving
Even if your loved one has decided that moving into an independent living facility is the right choice, saying goodbye to his or her house can be an emotional experience. Be patient and don’t rush this process.
- Compare Different Independent Living Facilities
Not all retirement communities
are the same. Though cost and distance from family are significant factors to consider when choosing which facility will best suit your loved one’s needs, they shouldn’t be the only ones. What kind of activities does each community provide? How often do residents have the opportunity to take trips from the facility? Are there other amenities available that your loved one would enjoy? If possible, schedule a visit with each potential community to speak with its employees about what sets that facility apart from other retirement homes.
- Bring Personal and Meaningful Possessions
Moving into an independent living facility is the beginning of a fresh start for your loved one, but being able to hold onto a few treasured possessions can help to ease any anxiety that may come with this change. Before finalizing any contract, confirm with the retirement home that your loved one can bring furniture and decorative items that he or she would like to keep.
