We know that moving into an assisted living community can be overwhelming and even frightening for some loved ones, especially for those who have always lived with family members and are now living independently. The thing about assisted living is that loved ones are almost always accompanied by a caregiver or professional medical personnel. This is so as loved ones who are under assisted living programs require assistance for daily tasks, such as showering, eating, and even taking medications. If your loved ones are moving into our assisted living community, there are some ways to make the move easier. Our apartments are fully furnished upon moving in, though we highly encourage your loved ones to add a personalized touch. This allows for the living environment to be more familiar and comforting. As such, here are ways of decorating an assisted living space.
Change the Apartment’s Interior
As we have mentioned above, our apartments are fully decorated and furnished, so your loved ones can immediately settle down upon moving in. However, as different people have different interior preferences, we allow loved ones to change up the apartment’s design to their liking. Of course, there are some limitations in order to prevent any disruptions that can cause your loved ones to be unsafe. To find out more about the re-arranging of furniture and the change in interior style, you and your loved ones can contact our concierge team, who are more than delighted to provide assistance. They can even schedule furniture moving services, as well as offer interior design advice to optimize the space.
Make the Room Smell Good
It should come as no surprise that scents can help alleviate the mood and calm our senses. Some homes can have distinctive smells, and if this is the case for your loved one’s home, try adding the scent to the apartment. Whether it’s fresh flowers, candles, or scented plugins, a familiar scent can instantly provide a sense of comfort for your loved ones, which helps to make them feel more welcomed in the new living environment. Do note that candles may prove a fire hazard, so it’s recommended for your loved ones to consult our team members first before lighting them in the apartment.
Decorate the Apartment with Photos and Artworks
Photos and artworks are just some of the most personal touches that your loved ones can add to the new apartment. In general, photos and artworks depict or represent a significant memory for your loved ones and are incredibly sentimental, so placing them around the living space can brighten up their day and alleviate any feeling of homesickness. In addition, photos and artworks are usually easy to deliver and carry around, so you and your loved ones can simply bring them along during the moving day.
