The Ideal Time to Move to a Senior Living Community
Right before the end of the year can be an ideal time to consider moving to a senior living community. A move, if well-timed, can be a rewarding, stress-free experience.
Below are some reasons why the fall months can be the time to make your move.
Holidays & Family
Because families tend to head home during the holidays, visits and calls about moving to assisted living communities often peak during November, December, and January. That means there is more competition for available assisted living apartments. By making a fall move, a senior will likely beat the holiday rush.
Little to No Snow
While moving is never fun, dragging boxes and furniture through ice and snow can be less than ideal. By making a move before the snow falls, an older adult can avoid the messiness of a winter event.
Many families put off their visit until January. Because assisted living homes want to fill their apartments, they are more likely to offer a discount for those who visit in November.
At Main Street Movers, we offer senior move facilitation services. These are often provided by what are called senior move managers and include everything from scheduling, creating floor plans, hiring movers, downsizing assistance, and unpacking help.
Give us a call to schedule an appointment and discuss your upcoming move.
