Any move you’ve ever made in life has come with stress attached. Moving when you're older can seem more difficult than any previous life change, for some. However, it can be a lot easier if you're mentally prepared and anticipate changes coming.
Below, we look at some things you are facing, with links to more advice:
Many people make the move easier for themselves thanks to the fact that they have a friend or someone they trust already living in the community. In other cases, spouses move together and have each other for company. Shared stress is reduced stress. But for many, the move into a retirement home comes with trepidation.
Here's a look at typical and understandable reasons for stress:
You are leaving much that you are familiar with
For many people, the impending move to a retirement home means leaving behind the deep familiarity of a family home. In a typical situation, you may be moving from a town or city where you have lived for many years, to be closer to kids and grandkids or other relatives. This drastic change of address can be understandably difficult.
If you are moving to be closer to family, this is a positive to hold onto. Proximity makes it easier for them to visit more often and have closer involvement in your life. Over time you will come to love the increased time you get to spend with them. Read more about moving toward possibility.
Moving coupled with other stressors such as a spouse’s death
Perhaps you are moving in a time of exacerbated stress, such as — in a typical, yet dreadful scenario — the profound loss resulting from the death of a spouse with whom you have lived for many years.
Some retirement homes offer grief counseling, but many people find the most comfort in the companionship of others and the healing that comes with time. There will be other people in your new community who have also been widowed. In time, you will almost certainly find someone who has been down this path before you, who will listen as you share your pain. Although your grief may seem too heavy to bear right at the moment, look forward to its lifting over time. Rest assured that you have made a good decision by moving into a retirement home, where you will have many new companions, and you are sure to find solace in the good company you will find.
Fears about the change in your cost of living
You may also be concerned about the monthly fees at your new community. Perhaps you have been mortgage-free for some time and you have grown comfortable with a healthy nest egg you have built up.
But you can also rest assured that there comes a time to start “drawing down” your retirement investment. Be sure that you are capitalizing all your social assistance and don’t be too proud to accept financial help or at least reassurances from your adult children who are willing to help out. Be sure you are doing all you can to afford it.
Doing the math and figuring out exactly how much time you can afford can be empowering. It’s very typical for people in independent living to have figured out how long their money is going to last. Assuming that this is somewhere more than ten years in the future, don’t be embarrassed to be one of those people who puts off that worry until later. You haven’t gotten to where you are in life by worrying too much about the future, right? Consult our retirement calculator to get the big picture.

Advantages of moving to independent living
You have made (or at least been part of) the decision to move into a retirement home. Let’s have a look at some things you can look forward to. Keep these in mind during some of the more challenging aspects of the move:
Relief from all the pesky annoyances of home ownership
All the concerns you have about home ownership or living on your own will be a thing of the past. Here’s a lengthy (but by no means exhaustive) list of things you can forget about from now on:
- daily housework like cooking, doing the dishes, cleaning up after pets, minding your thermostat
- weekly housework like washing floors, buying groceries, dusting the furniture
- monthly or irregular housework like washing the windows
- regular home upkeep like replacing furniture, cleaning carpets, replacing broken windows, etc.
- monthly bills like heat and hydro, cable, internet
- annual bills like property taxes
- mundane exterior seasonal tasks like sidewalk shoveling, snow removal, cutting the grass, raking leaves, etc.
- buying tools and equipment to help keep up the house
- home improvements and updates like roof repairs, renovations, etc.
- unexpected emergency repairs like appliance repairs, plumbing and electric problems, etc.
Did we cover it all? What you may not realize is the relief that will come over you, over time, from your unburdening from all this. You will feel lighter! Like so many people who experience moving into a retirement home, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this earlier.
The enhanced social life of living in a community
To our minds, the most wonderful boon of retirement community living is the diverse group of people your own age. You’ll live with people with whom you share so much. And the people will all be so interesting! Each person in the community has their own life story, a bit like yours, for sure, but also different, with its own points of interest. They’ll share aspects of your life experience; you may be able to reminisce with them as well as experience new things with them. In their sharing their life experiences with you, you’ll find that you open up more about your own life and learn new things about yourself.
Even for people used to a limited social life or who are more introverted, you’ll come to appreciate many of the communal aspects of life in a retirement home. Many people in retirement communities say, “if I want someone to talk to they’re right outside the door.” This is not something you thought you needed. But it’s certainly something that other people don’t have.
Elsewhere, people find that their friends pass on and there are less and less people to socialize with. New friend-making opportunities get scarcer and scarcer, too. Inside a retirement home there are opportunities to get to know everyone who lives there. You can make it as good as you want to, it’s up to you to make the experience as good as you can. There will be new people moving in there as well. As we have written about, you have the possibility of finding or creating a circle of good friends. Communal game times, group outings and other community activities will provide many opportunities to create shared memories and fun times.
For many people, finding new friendships has been difficult or near impossible in their traditional neighbourhood. The actual experience of making a new friend can be energizing in itself. You may find yourself recapturing social skills long dormant. There’s even the possibility that you’ll be able to find romance.
A look at welcoming committees
"Our welcoming committee is completely resident-run," says April Johnstone at the Redwoods, in Ottawa. "They do visits regularly and they’re really open to communication."
Jack, new resident at Redwoods, speaks for many when he says, “When you move into a place like this, you’re leaving the home you’ve lived in for many years, all your furniture, everything you’re familiar with. It’s not something you can ever really prepare yourself for.”
“As management team, we try to meet with people get in the first day or two that anybody lives here to answer any questions, to clarify anything that might have been missed or forgotten,” says Johnstone. “But we see the most benefit in having questions answered by a peer of theirs. We have a welcoming committee of about eight or nine here.”
One committee member, Margaret says, “I have a very small part. I just take the newcomers down to their table for meals.” Other committee roles include visiting new community members in their suite, arranging a welcoming tea, or escorting them to local shopping. “The thing I like best about it here is the people,” she says. “It’s a welcoming, friendly atmosphere.” She might be too modest to claim her own role in creating that friendly atmosphere. But obviously it is.
There are typical questions people have, as they would in a move into any new building. At the Redwoods, though, fellow residents are waiting to answer those questions. “You might want to know, where are the laundry rooms?” says Johnstone. “When do they open? Who should I talk to about this issue? How do I get something repaired in my room?”
Having people dedicated to helping you is something that makes moving into communities like the Redwoods unlike any other move you’ve ever made before. “It’s really comforting to people to have that one-to-one with someone who has been here and gone through the transition themselves. After the first few weeks, new residents will have met everyone on the welcoming committee, so when they do come down for cocktails or coffee or a movie, there’s a couple of familiar faces in the crowd already. It really helps.”
This has clearly helped new residents like Jack who had been at the Redwoods only a short time when we talked to him. “I’ve settled in pretty well here, “ he says. “There are some great people here and I’m relaxed now.”
