I Should Have Moved Sooner
August 1, 2019
“I should have moved sooner,” is a common phrase we often hear at Moving Station, after a new resident settles into their community.
Everyone’s situation is unique, and the right time to move into a community is a very personal decision. Some will delay the decision and think they are hanging onto their independence by staying in their home longer. However, research shows that when a senior decides to move into a community when they have a high level of emotional and physical stamina, they settle in quicker. Several benefits of moving sooner rather than later: developing friendships with other residents, qualifying for the health standards of a Life Plan community, enjoying onsite wellness programs, and being involved with the community at large.
Frequently cited obstacles to moving are downsizing and selling a home. Experience a smooth transition by utilizing the assistance of a Personal Relocation Manager, a benefit from your new community. Personal Relocation Managers guide you through the relocation process and help you make smart move-related decisions to save you time, money, and unnecessary stress.
