The Transition to an Assisted Living Community

Once the decision has been made to move into an assisted living community in Pittsburgh, PA, the transition can be overwhelming. Assisted living senior communities are designed to offer comfortable living quarters that aging adults can enjoy, without sacrificing their quality of life.

There are several steps that can help to simplify the process and make the transition a smooth one. The Haven at North Hills retirement homes in Pittsburgh, PA, has an environment that welcomes seniors and gives them the perfect setting to spend the best days of their lives.

The Transition Process

There are many ways to begin the process of transitioning senior loved ones into assisted living communities. The point of start is unique to your own preference, but there are several considerations that could make the move easier for all parties involved. The motivation for the move varies among seniors and will have an effect on how receptive seniors are to the change. Some make the transition in an effort to downsize, while other seniors appreciate the structure and organization offered by senior living communities. In some cases, personal or physical limitations make it necessary for aging adults to choose assisted living communities.

Involve the senior in the decision making process to show that their thoughts are valuable and appreciated. Seniors should have input on as many details as possible during the selection of the assisted care community in Pittsburgh they choose. Consider their feelings, wants, and needs to move forward in finding the community that will best accommodate their needs and fulfill their happiness. Make sure the senior will be exposed or have access to at least two or more of their hobbies. Our assisted living community offer activities such as book clubs, therapeutic recreations, tea socials, physical exercise programs, and more for seniors to engage in.

Choose a location that is near friends, family, and places that are often visited by the senior. Assisted living communities that are located in close proximity to family, doctor’s offices, malls, and grocery stores make it easier for the senior to commute. It is important that the area is convenient for the senior and their needs. Aging adults should spend time outdoors and community or neighborhood parks is a great place for them to do so. Taking in the scenery and connecting with nature helps them to relax and feel comfortable in their environment. Make sure the senior is aware of all their nearby favorite spots such as their favorite coffee house, bookstore, churches, or recreational centers. Location is one of the most significant factors when selecting an assisted living community.

With all things considered, assisted living communities in Pittsburgh offer amenities and options that make life easier for seniors. They will better enjoy these amenities if the transition is one they can appreciate. There are several options to choose from in most senior living communities. Find out which services your loved one would benefit from to find the best location for them. The Haven at North Hills, has elite community features and offer prestigious services for aging adults to enjoy. Does the senior need their meals prepared? Will they need assistance managing their medication? Is it necessary to have help with housekeeping and laundry? These are all important factors that should be considered. Pittsburgh assisted living communities may offer nutritious meal programs to ensure the senior receives healthy meals. Seniors with mobility restrictions may require assistance with the upkeep of their living space. Housekeeping services will make this easier. Many seniors are on strict medication regimens and it’s comforting to know that medication management services are available if needed. Amenities and available options are a big part of the decision process when transitioning into assisted living.

The new space that the senior moves into is now their home and should feel comfortable and welcoming. Consider bringing furniture, décor, and other items from home to make it seem and feel familiar. Seniors can decorate in a style that they find attractive by changing things up from what they were at home or keeping them relatively similar. Remember to factor in the amount of available space the senior has in their new apartment or home. Furniture pieces from their former home may be too large for certain areas. The idea is to find a space that requires little maintenance by the senior and is easy for them to maneuver around in. Seniors should find an apartment or space that they love and will be happy to call home. This is the space that they will bring friends and family into for visits and casual entertainment. It is a big part of who they are and a reflection of their personality. Color schemes, window treatments, and simplicities such as table settings will have a great impact on how happy the senior is in their new living space. They should have a major voice in choosing these items.

Seniors should familiarize themselves with their surroundings and most importantly, make new friends in the community. It is important to find friends that share common interests. It permits the senior to grow in the community and connect with others to share special moments and occasions with in their lives. The Haven at North Hills has an established community feel with people from diverse backgrounds and all walks of life.
