Moving into a Senior Retirement Community.
Having made the decision to move into a retirement community, it’s time to start planning and packing. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Make a plan:
Ask yourself how much of the moving process you want to do yourself. Will you hire a move manager or movers to just do the moving or will they do the packing?
Ask for help!
Moving is exciting but may also be overwhelming. Allow others to join with you in both the joy and physical work of the move. Plan well ahead to ensure you have plenty of help on your schedule, and when you need it.
Plan out your space:
Request a floor plan with dimensions and then start placing your “must haves”.
Let go/ Share with others:
Think about exactly what you will need to make you feel at home and settled in the space you will have in your new home. Try to do this when you are calm and rested and start with the largest pieces, then your most treasured smaller ones.
Once this is decided, everything else can go to family, charity and friends. Remember less is more.
Use Coloured Stickers, or Post it Notes to identify the boxes and items:
Use colored stickers to identify what is going with you and be sure to clearly mark the contents of boxes.
We are committed to providing you and your family whatever is necessary to start your new journey with peace of mind. With decades of experience and hundreds of seniors happily settled in, Queensview is a warm and welcoming choice to call home.
