Tips for a Smooth Transition into an Assisted Living Facility

At Copperstate Moving & Storage, we know moving a loved one into an assisted living facility can be very stressful for you and them. We have created a short video to summarize a few of our Arizona moving company’s tips for successfully moving into their new home.

What is an Assisted Living Facility?

Assisted living facilities offer home-like care for people, most often elders, in need of 24/7 attention. Housing care, personal care, and health care are just a few of the perks available to residents at assisted care facilities. We know that moving from one’s personal space to a home facility can be a lot to handle. Assisted living facilities give their residents independence while offering them the help they may need or require.

When first looking into assisted living homes, be sure to ask a multitude of questions. It is crucial to have all the assisted living information available when deciding which facility to move to and when to complete the move-in. The more information you have, the less hassle there should be on the day of the move. Gathering this information means first thoroughly inspecting the facility. In addition, speak with current residents and neighbors. Determine how they have been treated and cared for in their time at the facility.

On the day of the move, it helps the transition go more smoothly if the new resident is involved in the planning process and involved in the move itself. If, for some reason, they can’t be hands-on, you can take them to lunch or a movie while our Surprise movers handle all the heavy lifting. Having fun plans will help make the moving day worry-free and special, as it should be. 

Tips for Living in an Assisted Facility

When moving into an assisted living facility, there are a few tips to keep in mind. With an organized and planned-out relocation, you’ll have a stress-free day of moving. Some moving tips are:

  • Focus on the positives
  • Keep a folder of important and personal documents
