What to Expect When You Move to a Senior Living Community
Making the transition to a senior living community can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. At Summerset Senior Living, we understand that moving to a new place involves a lot of changes in a short time, and that can be difficult for anyone to accept. When someone moves into one of our senior living communities in Northern California or Reno, Nevada, we want them to be comfortable and make their transition as easy as possible. To help with this process, we want to share with you some information about what you can expect when moving to one of our communities. We hope that this will put your mind at ease so you can feel more comfortable transitioning to the next phase of your life.
Meeting New People
Finding a new living situation means you will have the opportunity to meet lots of new people. We know this can make you nervous, but we assure you that the people you meet in your first week will become close friends in short order. From our residents to our friendly staff, you will have plenty of people to talk to and build close relationships with.
Taking Ownership of Your Space
When you were living at home, you could decorate however you wanted, and the same is true of your new senior living apartment or home. Bring some things from home; your photos, furniture, art, mementos, and more are all welcome here. You can even bring your pet, as we are pet-friendly! We want you to feel as comfortable as possible and seeing familiar items in your surroundings is part of that.
Getting Something to Eat
After all the excitement of moving in, we know you have worked up an appetite. Our All Day Dining offers restaurant quality meals that are just as tasty and nutritious as anything you got at home. Your friends and family will be jealous when they come to visit! Our menu changes daily and is designed by dieticians and chefs. We are also prepared to accommodate any type of dietary restrictions you may have, and we offer a range of options including comfort foods, old favorites, and even cultural cuisines.
Staying in Contact with Family and Friends
Just because you’re moving to a new place doesn’t mean you have to leave your old life behind. Your friends and family care about you, and they are welcome to visit as often as they want. You can also stay in contact by phone or computer; we even have options to make it simple to stay in touch for residents who aren’t so tech-savvy.
Finding Fun Activities
One thing is certain: you will never be bored when you live at Summerset Senior Living. We offer a variety of social opportunities, planned outings, cultural experiences, fitness classes, and more. Your golden years are the perfect time to live life to the fullest, and you will have no problem doing that at any of our communities.
