Helpful Hints for Moving

Moving Tips Assisted Living FacilitiesIn this article, we will discuss some helpful tips for moving into one of our assisted living facilities in the Denver surrounding areas. When new residents move into your loved ones room, an adjustment must always take place. We provide reorientation for new residents, as well as current residents. This means at times, clothes will be exchanged and assigned beds will be confusing for some residents.

Please remember to label all of your loved one’s personal items. This could include sheets, pillow cases and even shoes. All items are left in the common areas at some point and another resident may pick that item up thinking it belongs to them. When proper labels are on an item, we can return it to the rightful owner.

Although, we would love to accommodate all requests, some are just not realistic with the number of residents at each Applewood Our House location. These requests may include ironing clothing, dry clean only clothing, and ironing sheets. We ask that you bring in wash and wear clothing. The residents are more comfortable in casual clothes on a daily basis. We do understand that you may want your loved one in a special outfit for outings with family. We will accommodate your requests for dressier attire for these occasions.

What to bring when you are helping your loved one move to an assisted living home… you will need to make sure everything is ready and in order, please remember…
