Senior Living Downsizing Made Easier

Senior Living | 03/28/19

Paring down your possessions when moving into a senior living community is no easy task. They represent a lifetime full of memories and the mementos that come with them. How could anyone even begin deciding what to keep and what to do with the rest?

While it may seem like making a move to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), and subsequently, downsizing, can be daunting, an oft-repeated phrase among current residents at the Oaks at Denville is “I wish I would have made the move sooner”

Easing Your Move to a CCRC

The prep work when making a move to a CCRC doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Some CCRCs, like The Oaks at Denville, offer optional services to help simplify the moving process for you and your family.

Our Move Ahead program has a Move-in Coordinator who can work with incoming residents and their families throughout the whole process, from finding the best living space for your needs, to help you set up your new home the day you move in.

In addition to downsizing services, the Move Ahead program staff coordinator oversees the preparation of your new home so you can focus on getting your existing home ready for sale. The coordinator can help with this effort by providing you and your family several recommendations for movers, auctioneers and more. As an added bonus, The Oaks at Denville will cover up to $2,500 of approved moving expenses!

Once downsizing is complete and your home is ready for sale, the Move Ahead team will work with the realtor to evaluate and recommend ways to stage it for better sales appeal. If small repairs or upgrades are needed, your move-in coordinator can provide recommendations for trusted contractors and handymen. Lastly, the program offers entrance fee funding options that allow you to move into The Oaks at Denville even before your home sells, affording you time to wait for the right buyer to purchase.

The Life You Love with the Things You Cherish the Most

Whether you’re choosing to move because you’re ready to downsize your home, are looking for a more engaging social life, or simply wish to ensure peace of mind for your future health needs, The Oaks at Denville is ready to assist you every step of the way along the decision-making process.

Our community offers 17 different floor plans from cozy studios to spacious two-bedroom residences that fit your style and help you live the relaxed retirement you deserve. By taking care of home maintenance and housekeeping, you will have plenty of time to enjoy all the enriching opportunities our community and town have to offer.

Like all senior living communities in the Springpoint Senior Living family, The Oaks at Denville is CARF-accredited, which means the CCRC must meet and exceed rigorous standards for financial strength quality of services, safety and security and many other measures of excellence year after year. Only 15 percent of CCRCs in the United States achieve this distinction.
