Start The Conversation Early

One of the most important factors is to start the conversation early — this is especially key for patients suffering memory loss or dementia. In those cases, you’ll also want to be sure that you choose a community specializing in memory care. If you or your loved one is hesitant, you can always visit the assisted living community together before deciding. On moving day, schedule the move for the best time of day and be sure to bring a simple collection of their favorite things to make them feel at home.

Aspects To Anticipate

There is a lot involved with moving your loved ones into an assisted living facility and we help you to anticipate some of the possible stressors. Fear at nighttime is common among patients in the beginning, as well as overall anxiety, feelings of abandonment, nervousness, or embarrassment. By preparing your loved one and meeting with staff and other members of the community, you can help to reduce these factors and make the transition more smooth.

How Long Does It Take To Adjust?

No two individuals are the same! In some cases, individuals make the transition within days, but most take between 3-6 months to become fully comfortable and accustomed to their new life. Assisted living is a major change, so it is natural for the process to take some time.
