Moving Out on Your Own as a Senior

As much as we want to deny it, aging is an inevitable process. As time goes on, you may find certain tasks or activities more challenging than before. Life can seem a lot slower than when you were younger.

An assisted community may be exactly what you’ve been looking for in regards to transitioning into the next chapter of your life.

Here’s how you can safely and independently move on your own as a senior.

What Is an Assisted Living Community?

Assisted living communities are designed for older adults who can remain independent and active, but need a helping hand. Seniors in assisted living, also known as supportive living, can live independently if they get help with tasks such as meals, housekeeping, laundry, grooming, dressing, bathing, transferring to mobility devices, or medication monitoring.

Beyond assisting with the activities of daily living, Dellwood Senior Living ensures that each member’s mind, body, and spirit are nurtured.

Plan Everything Out

Regardless of where you want to go or what your age is, moving can be stressful. You need to have a solid plan to ensure everything goes smoothly. The first part of your plan should be to figure out which community you prefer and then to determine the type of room and board you desire.

Ask for Help

Regardless of the type of community you choose, you will most likely need help moving. Because of potential health issues or due to age, moving heavy objects and furniture is not recommended. If possible, ask one of your family members, a friend, or even a trusted neighbor for help. Another option you have is to contact a moving company. They’ll get your belongings to your new home without a problem.

After spending your life working and caring for others, it is time to focus on yourself. An assisted living facility provides you with the peaceful life you deserve—but making that move is a big step. Dellwood Gardens is here to help make the transition more fulfilling and financially possible. To learn more, contact us at Dellwood Gardens Assisted Living and Memory Care.
