Transitioning a loved one into a senior living community can be a difficult and emotional process. At Fitz Bickerstaff, we take this responsibility very seriously. Our tried and true approach always begins with a clear purpose and conversation. We believe in providing the most clarity and amount of details possible to make this seemingly difficult experience less stressful and simple.

Here are some steps that we recommend taking prior to meeting with our team. This will reduce the anxiety and heart ache your loved one will endure while transitioning to their new residence:

Start talking about the move, early:

Begin researching options and discussing the possibility of senior living community before there is an immediate need.

Include your loved one in the decision-making process:

Involve them in the research and visit different senior living community options together.

Involve other family members or friends:

It can be helpful to have input and support from other family members or friends during the transition.

Prepare for the move:

Help your loved one pack and plan for the move, including transferring important documents and discussing any special needs with a senior living community.

Stay connected:

Make sure to visit and stay in touch with your loved one after the move to ensure they are adjusting well.

It’s important to remember that this transition may not be easy for your loved one, and it may take time for them to adjust to the new living environment. It’s important to be patient and provide emotional support during this time.
