Choosing a suite in a senior retirement home is an important decision. The right accommodations are key to making your loved one feel comfortable as they transition from living independently to their new home. Senior living communities can be enjoyable, relaxing places to live and they feel just like home with the right suite.
Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you pick out the perfect suite in a senior retirement home for your loved one:
How much space does your love one need?
It’s important to pick a space large enough to accommodate familiar belongings without leaving your loved one feeling crowded. Items from home can be comforting. This is why it’s best to make sure there’s enough room for whatever they plan to bring with them to their new home.
How much light is required?
Bright, cheery windows can make a big difference for those who find their mood is seasonally impacted by the amount of light they receive. If your loved one needs a lot of light to feel good in the winter time, this should be considered when picking out the best spot for them in a senior living community. Sunny suites help fuel sunny dispositions.
What safety equipment is required?
Depending on their level of mobility, additional modifications may be necessary to keep your loved one safe and moving around as independently as possible. Select a suite that meets your loved one’s mobility needs already, or that can be modified accordingly.
A bright, spacious and safe space to call home will make their transition to a senior living community more enjoyable. If you consider these key factors, you will be able to select the best suite possible for your loved one in their new senior retirement home.
