Helpful Tips for Moving In
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
In this article, we will discuss some helpful tips for moving into one of our assisted living facilities in Denver surrounding areas. When new residents move into your loved ones room an adjustment must always take place. Reorientation for the new resident as well as the current resident must take place. This means at times clothes will be exchanged and assigned beds will be confusing.
Please remember to label all items you wish for your loved one to use personally. Some of the items this may include are 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 the item we can return it to the rightful owner.
Although we would love to accommodate all requests some are just not realistic with twelve residents. These requests may include ironing clothing and/or 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.
