Transitioning to Assisted Living in Albuquerque, New Mexico
It may be time for your elderly loved one to move to assisted living with Preferred Assisted Living & Respite Care, but the transition is difficult for many.
Easing the Transition
You want to help your loved one in every way possible. The following are a few things you can do to help ease the transition to assisted living:
- Talk Through Concerns
Make sure all of their concerns are addressed and try to work towards a solution.
- Visit the Facility Several Times Before the Move
Visiting our facilities several times before the move can help your elderly loved one become acquainted with our facilities and our residents.
- Stay in His or Her Life as Much as Possible
The first few weeks and months after a move to our facilities will be difficult; your presence will help them know they have your love and support.
- Encourage Them to Get Involved
We have many activities at our facilities. Getting involved will help them stay busy and feel like they are part of something.
- Make Their Living Space Feel Like Home
Decorate your love one’s room with furniture and decorations from home. Having familiar décor will help them feel more at ease.
- Form Close Relationships with the Staff
We always encourage family members of our residents to be an active part of their life and care process. We work closely with you and your loved one to make sure their needs are met.
The transition from independent to assisted living will be difficult, but you can help a great deal by remaining by their side throughout the process.
