Getting Ready to Move to Assisted Living in Madison

Preparing a loved one to move into an assisted living community near you in Madison can be an emotional and busy time. It's good to prepare a checklist of what to do in preparation for the move. Before that, though, make sure you are current on scheduled visits to the doctor, dentist and any other professionals you rely on for good health. You need a doctor's assessment in order to move into the assisted living facility to ensure the community can provide the care you require.

Downsize belongings prior to making the move to ease the transition. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Visit the new apartment and picture what you have room for.
  • Make a list of the necessary items you’ll bring: bed, sofa, clothes, TV.
  • Budget for movers if you are bringing heavy furniture.
  • Make a list of sentimental items you want close by like photos, a favorite piece of art and special mementos.
  • Give remaining sentimental items to family and friends.
  • Sell anything left over, such as tools, appliances and antiques.
  • Donate clothes, extra bedding and kitchen supplies you don't need.
  • Sell cars or a home and put the money aside for future expenses.

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost in Madison?

What’s the Difference Between Assisted Living vs. Other Senior Care Types?

Assisted living sits between independent living and skilled nursing facilities (also known as nursing homes) on a continuum of care, separating it from other forms of senior care.

Before deciding on an assisted living community, you should understand how it compares to other care types offered in the Madison area. Here's a look at some other types of care for comparison:

  • Independent living works well for aging citizens in good physical condition who like independence, but no longer need a single-family home or apartment.
  • Respite care is designed for short-term care for seniors who need extra help after illness or surgery.
  • Home care is personal, non-medical care provided in an aging citizen's home.
  • Memory care facilities are designed specifically for Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions.
  • Hospice care is tailored toward the chronically ill, such as those battling cancer or facing end-of-life scenarios.
  • Skilled nursing offers round-the-clock nursing services or rehabilitative care. In some cases, a move to this type of care may only be temporary.
