Remember, this is your new home and you should make it yours. Most assisted living apartments come unfurnished, though some will rent furniture if needed. The property can also supply bed lines including pillows (twin bed), towels, washcloths and shower curtains. I think that bringing your own pillow is the best idea – but you can use the rest and accessorize with your favorite blankets, throws, etc.
Residents may want to bring some of the following: personal toiletries, bath mats, wall hangings and pictures, radio, television, clock, telephone, VCR/DVD player and custom window treatments.
Furniture required is usually a bed, night stand, lamps, recliner chair or rocker, bookshelf, dresser, chest of drawers.
Don’t forget to bring the photo albums and your personality.
