4 Helpful Tips For Seniors Moving To Assisted Living In Vancouver

Assisted living is a reality for most of us as we grow older and for seniors who are accustomed to living on their own in the Vancouver region, the transition can be especially difficult. That's why we are here to offer a few helpful tips for seniors who are in the process of transferring into assisted living facilities in Vancouver.

After all, this does not have to be a particularly challenging process. As long as you are willing to take your time and properly educate yourself on the following tips, this process is made easier. Please be sure to read on and learn more about these pointers for seniors who are in the process of transferring to an assisted living facility in the Vancouver area.

1. Speak To Your Physician

In many instances, a senior who is in need of an assisted living facility will not always believe that they should go. It can be difficult for loved ones to convince their senior relative that they require such services and that is why a trained physician becomes important during such moments.

They let the senior know exactly what to expect, illuminate the reasons why they cannot continue to live by themselves and offer an objective point of view that makes the process much easier for your loved one to stomach.

2. Make The Facility Your Own

There is nothing wrong with trying to make the move as easy as possible on yourself and by taking the time to move in as much as your stuff from your current residence as possible, this goes a long way towards easing your way into a new facility.

The best assisted living facilities are more than willing to provide you with ample opportunities to make your living area more personalized and they know just how important it is for their residents to create a feeling that is as homey as possible.

3. Ask Questions

Before moving into an assisted living facility, you need to ask as many questions as it takes to develop the appropriate level of comfort with your new digs. Make a list of questions before you make a final selection, so that you are not leaving any aspect of your care to chance.

The more questions that you ask, the more fears and concerns you are able to address. It is also a good way to separate facilities that do not have your best interests at heart from those that more willing and able to speak openly about your initial concerns.

4. Develop a Sustainable Plan

Since you are going to be residing in the assisted living facility for a significant period of time, you should certainly take the time to sit down develop a sustainable plan with the administrative staff before you decide to sign the dotted line.

Once all of your concerns have been voiced and you have established the proper rapport, it is time to sit down and make a plan for your future care. This removes a great deal of uncertainty from the process.

“I was perfectly happy in my home - but I came here and everybody was so nice. I thought, what a good idea to give it a try.”
“Just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we’re retired from life. We stay fit, we love the food, and there's plenty for us to do out in the community. It's a great life, and the people here are wonderful.“
“The thing I value most is that I have my independence, and I get to choose what I want to do with my time. There are so many opportunities here, and I make sure I take advantage of them.”
“There's so many things that you're offered - food, entertainment, good friends, good accommodation. Lift the phone and you've got everything you want.“
“I just think it's fabulous what they do here at Tapestry.“
"I was facing up to the prospect of living alone and I was already looking, and this place was just going to be developed - they hadn't even turned the sod yet - but I became aware of it. I just liked the looks of what they were going to do and it has turned out to be an excellent choice."
“It's an ideal combination of privacy, or not, as you will. You can live entirely self-sufficiently in your suite with your own kitchen and everything, but when you feel the need for company, it's right there. I've made lots of new friends here. It's ideal.”
