Making the transition to Yuma Senior Living can be a big change, but there are ways to ease the transition. As this place will be your new home, it should feel like it, in all aspects. It’s important for you to choose a community within Yuma that feels comfortable for you and your family.
In addition to this, you do have the ability to shape what your assisted living experience is. If you were social when you were at your own home, you should be social here in your new home – and there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Here are three tips to making the most of assisted living.
1. Personalize Your Apartment
Your apartment in assisted living is your new home. Because of that, be sure to personalize it. Decorate it similarly to how you decorate your old home. Have pictures all around the room of your family and friends. Invite your family over to help decorate so that they can add their own personal touches too. The best way to help make your Yuma Senior Living apartment feel like home is to decorate it yourself. You will not only be even more comfortable, but it will lift your spirits.
2. Make New Friends
When you move to any new home, you will become part of a new community. It’s the same when you move to an assisted living community. There will be a whole new group of people who you can interact with daily. New residents are encouraged to make friends with residents living in Yuma Senor Living.
Socialization is so important for people of all ages, but especially for seniors. It particularly benefits seniors’ mental health. Plus, having friends will keep you from being lonely and give you people with whom to enjoy social activities. Assisted living communities offer community-planned activities, but you’ll also have plenty of time to enjoy the many outdoor activities spaces and the banquet room for a game of cards.
3. Take Part in Social Activities
Our Yuma community offers a wide array of activity programs for residents to take part in. While they’re not mandatory, it’s a great idea for residents to take part in those that are of interest to them. For instance, here at Yuma Senior Living, we make sure to address the cultural, recreational, and social needs of our seniors. Because of this, we offer many engaging and nurturing activities and events daily. There is also a large movie projector that we regularly use for our blockbuster movie nights, an on-site wellness center and beauty/barber shop that residents can utilize together or on their own.
At Yuma Senior Living there are many opportunities to enhance your day-to-day life while benefiting from the kind of quality care you deserve. Simply give us a call at
