If making a move to a senior living community has come up in conversation with your aging loved one at some point, chances are you have some questions about what it’s like to actually move in! How does the move-in process work? Who helps manage the transition? What is the timeline for making the move?
We understand that many new residents and their families might feel a bit apprehensive or even a little overwhelmed at the thought of moving. This is perfectly normal. Moving is a big change for everyone. Thankfully, at our UMH communities, we are here to help every step of the way. Not only are we committed to your loved one’s successful transition, but we are also here to support you, the caregiver!
Want to take a look at the move-in process for yourself? In this infographic, we’ve outlined the transition in 10 easy steps, from start to finish. From the time you place a deposit and fill out an application, to the signing of the lease, to the day your loved one is welcomed into the community – and beyond! We hope you find it helpful. (We’ve even designed a convenient printable version! Click here.)
Here’s to Happy Moving!!!
