Transitioning to a new stage of life can bring out many different emotions, from excitement to uncertainty. Knowing what your next steps are before moving to a close-knit community and assisted living lifestyle can help put your mind at ease.

Let’s explore the process.

Exploring Assisted Living

Assisted living is a lifestyle option that allows your loved one to live life on their own terms while removing some of the difficult aspects of daily living. This lifestyle blends assistance and independence, with the main focus being your loved one’s support, safety, and stability. 

Bethany Village features a personalized assisted living experience with modern apartments and programs that engage your loved one’s body, mind, and spirit. Assisted living allows you to choose what level of care and dietary needs your loved one requires to maximize their independence.

Your loved one’s assisted living space is designed with their comfort and convenience in mind and includes modern living amenities such as:

  • Spacious master bathrooms with accessible showers & assist bars
  • Nutritious meal plans
  • Emergency call system
  • Large 1-bedroom apartments for singles and couples

Bethany Village takes pride in providing the support your loved one needs. Along with high-quality care and amenities, your loved one can expect various services, including:

  • Coordinated on-site therapies
  • Transportation services
  • Memory support options
  • Health and wellness checks
  • Dedicated onsite nurses 24/7
  • Access to home health care services

An assisted living lifestyle helps your loved one maintain a level of independence while also giving them more time to focus on new hobbies and expanding their social circle within the community.

Moving In: A Complete Checklist to Bethany Village Assisted Living

If your loved one’s moving date is soon approaching, you may be wondering what you can do to help them transition to their new community. The transition to assisted living involves some patience and an adjustment period.

Knowing what to bring when moving to a new environment can sometimes feel overwhelming. Let’s look at some things you can do to help your loved one and what they should bring with them. 

Plan for Healthcare Needs

Before a move, it’s a good idea to contact your primary care physician and take your loved one in for a visit. Any updated prescriptions or medical equipment can be taken care of, and you’ll be able to begin packing in the right mindset.

Get Packing Done Early

Packing early can allow you and your loved one to find sentimental and important items they may want to bring with them to their new home. These items can help make your loved one feel even more at home during the transition period.

Early packing can also help your loved one relax and come to terms with the move while keeping track of what they want to bring to their new home.

Adjust Mail Services & Contact Details

Moving to a new community can be challenging for your loved one, so helping them adjust their mail delivery and contact details can help make the process easier. 

In addition, it’s also a good idea to communicate with the staff in their new community to streamline the process and get all the correct information you need for your loved one. 

Consistent Contact with Your Loved One’s New Community

Bethany Village wants to make this transition as stress-free as possible for your family.

You’ll be able to double-check that all your loved one’s medication and dietary needs will be met and their new apartment will be ready for them. Consistent contact will also help ensure you understand all the move in details, and that all paperwork has been signed and received.

Help Your Loved One Design Their New Space

Finally, designing your own space with personal items is always a special moment. Helping your loved one put together their new apartment with important items they brought can help make them feel more at home.

Transitioning to a new home can be challenging, but Bethany Village offers a vibrant community where your loved one can thrive.
