You or your loved one do not have to wait until the movers are on your doorstep to become part of the community. Getting to know the staff and residents before move-in day can go a long way in easing jitters.
For example, many Monarch Communities have open doors for visitors to come in and enjoy a meal, participate in activities, and get to know the new neighbors.
Plus, it’s important to include the staff at this part of the moving process. They will be more than happy to help in any way they can such as offering recommendations like realtors, senior moving companies, and professional packing services.
By talking to our staff before move-in, we’re also trying to get to know you—our new friend and resident. It is our mission to see residents, both current and future, from a lens that is telling of their larger story. It is an honor and humbling experience to learn about your loved one: What are their likes? Their dislikes? Their history? What makes your loved one… your loved one? This information helps us forge a better, more sensitive, and more personal relationship with each resident before they ever settle into their new home.
In turn, families achieve peace of mind knowing their loved ones are receiving specialized care from a community of compassionate individuals before and after moving in.
