Preparation is important when making a healthy transition. Ensure you set a date to move that allows you to get all your affairs in order. Once you move into the facility, it’s best to not have to worry about things that could have easily been handled before you moved. Make sure you packed everything you need and that you have a plan in place to handle your old house or living space. It’s also very important to visit the facility frequently. Getting acquainted with the other residents and staff will make you more comfortable once you are moved in. It can be harder to transition if you do not know anyone and make it harder for you to utilize the social dynamic of the facility you chose. Frequent visits also make sure the facility is a right fit for you. It also allows you to know what to expect, and helps you be more accustomed to the schedule and activities the facility offers. Another successful thing to do is stay busy. There is no shortage of things to do when making the transition so do your best to stay out of your head and focus on the next chapter of your life. Do your best to not overthink your choice, this will just lead to you introverting and second guessing yourself. This will turn something exciting into something scary and will put an unneeded burden on yourself and family members. Be prepared and be excited!
