At Avalon Memory Care, each of our Alzheimer’s assisted living centers
offers comprehensive and compassionate Alzheimer’s care. If your
loved one will be receiving bedside care for Alzheimer’s at Avalon,
there are some things you can do to make their transition easier. Here’s
a guide to helping your loved one adjust to Avalon Memory Care.
Let Them Pick Important Personal Belongings to Bring
Your loved one may be worried that they have to get rid of all of their
personal belongings when they move into an
Alzheimer’s assisted living center. Help them pick out the most important and meaningful belongings
to bring to the assisted living home. You can also offer to provide storage
for any seasonal items that won’t be needed on a daily basis.
Make Their New Home as Comfortable as Possible
Making the transition into an assisted living center might be very difficult
and frustrating for your loved one. You can ease this transition by doing
whatever possible to make their new home as comfortable and comforting
as their old one was. Decorate their new room as closely to their old
one as possible, and let them bring as many of their treasured possessions
as will fit. Make sure that they have appropriate bedding, linens, and towels.
Listen to Their Feelings and Be Compassionate
One of the most important things you can do to help your loved one through
this transition is listening to their feelings and being compassionate.
Let them know that you’re available to talk about any fears or anxiety
they have about moving into an Alzheimer’s assisted living center,
and reassure them that they will still have your support and love regardless
of where they live.
