Transitioning to assisted living can be a huge change for your loved one. Finding ways to support them makes you feel more involved and can make the move easier. You can start supporting your loved one before they move and continue until they feel settled in their new community, which could take weeks or months.
Assisted living provides all the comforts of a home environment, but with the added benefit of around-the-clock staff and help with daily tasks. Even so, the decision for a loved one to go into assisted living isn't easy and can take its toll on residents and their families.
Making the move into an assisted living community is a big step — one we hope you considered and planned carefully to ensure a vibrant and joyful life in your new home. At Bethesda Senior Living Communities, we're always so happy to welcome a new resident into one of our assisted living communities. We've seen residents thrive in their communities and find so much happiness and peace, but we also know such a move can be stressful and scary.
For older adults of faith, church can be a foundation of life. That stability might be as simple as having somewhere to go every Sunday to give structure to the week. It might be more complex, such as having a place and people to call on when you need assistance.
If you're an older adult who's been a person of faith for a long time, you may think you're almost done with Bible study. After all, you may have completed many plans to read through the Bible in a year and have a veritable library of finished Bible study workbooks on your shelves.
Bethesda Senior Living Communities is a faith-based not-for-profit that embraces a philosophy of selfless service. The staff at our corporate office and the staff in our communities work hard to support every resident and provide a caring, faithful approach to advocacy and care. We love to see seniors living vibrant, active lives in our communities, and we think choosing a faith-based assisted living or senior living community makes that easier to do — especially for older adults of faith.
Making the transition from home life to assisted living is a big step, so it’s natural if you’re worried about this change.

Through a variety of personalized care plans, services and activities, you’ll likely feel more independent and socially fulfilled in assisted living than you did at home.
The transition to assisted living is a natural progression for many older adults, but knowing when to move isn't always easy. Whether you're considering assisted living for yourself or a loved one, evaluating the situation and being proactive for the future can help you decide when the time is right. Here are some steps to take when considering a move to assisted living.
The book of Ephesians is an enormously instructive part of the New Testament. Written by Paul or one of his disciples, it provides a comprehensive overview of the most important messages of Christ and the principles required to live a faith-centered life at any age.
The start of a new year is the perfect time to strengthen your walk with God. Choosing a community under the Bethesda Senior Living Communities umbrella provides a supportive environment that makes it easier to follow God. Taking additional steps to strengthen your faith in 2023 can also help.
