Many find the process of moving to be a daunting task. Even more so, the transition to senior living can bring additional emotion and stress. Although your loved one may have moved many times in their life, this move is an entirely different experience. The thought of moving a lifetime of memories from a large home to a small apartment style suite can be overwhelming. But a move to senior living involves much more than coordinating the logistics of the move, it can be an emotionally trying time for your family. To cope with the stress involved in the move, remind yourself that eventually this journey you’re embarking on will lead to an improved quality of life for your loved one. The benefits your family and loved one will experience will reassure you that you are making the right decision.
