Assisted living makes it possible to live comfortably while receiving the care you need. However, knowing that assisted living is the best possible option for you doesn’t necessarily make the transition from home to an assisted living community any easier. The adjustment may be emotional and intimidating, especially if you have lived in your home for decades.
While the process won’t be stress-free, there are steps you can take to ease the transition for yourself or your loved one.
Find the Right Assisted Living Community
Before doing anything else, you should make sure you find the right community. The assisted living community you choose should have compassionate nurses and staff, plenty of social programs and activities, 24-hour personal care, nutritious and delicious daily meals, and housekeeping services. At Maple Ridge, we offer all this plus a full-service salon, resident library, fitness center, pub, and so much more. Rest assured, our community is the right one for you.
Set Up Your Space
Once you move into Maple Ridge, make sure you make the place your own. If you’re decorating an apartment for your aging loved one, remember to bring mementos and decorate with photos and décor that make the apartment feel as much like home as possible.
Get to Know Your Neighbors
Maple Ridge is more than just an assisted living community; it’s a community full of opportunities for social engagements and places where you can gather with others. Getting to know your neighbors is a great way to feel more at home here. Of course, your family members and friends outside of the community are welcome to visit!
Schedule a Tour
To best determine if our community will suit your needs, schedule a tour. We would be happy to show you around our community grounds, including gardens, courtyards, and patios. During the tour, you can also take a look at our private studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. We have several different floor plans and pricing options so that you can find one to suit your needs.
