Autumn: The Ideal Season for a Stress-Free Move to Senior Living

Moving to a new residence is a big step, but choosing the right time of year can make all the difference. Fall offers many advantages for those considering a move.

The cooler temperatures make the moving process more enjoyable and less physically demanding than the heat of summer or the harsh cold of winter. Plus, the season's foliage and beauty enhance the overall experience. This is especially true for those who move to The Lafayette, a Redeemer Health senior living community surrounded by the beauty of Pennypack Park and spectacular woodland views.

Moving during the fall also provides a relaxed atmosphere, making it easier to adapt to your new surroundings. But that's not all. Fall is a lively time in senior living communities, offering a wealth of activities to connect with like-minded individuals.

At The Lafayette we offer a vibrant independent living lifestyle, hosting a wide range of engaging events from September through December. Think holiday-themed gatherings, food festivals, live entertainment, and discussion groups—all designed with residents’ interests in mind.

Find the Right Senior Living Community
When contemplating a move to a senior living community, it's important to explore various options available to you. In our region, there are many independent living communities. Rest assured, with the wide range of choices available, you're certain to find one that aligns perfectly with your needs and preferences.

At The Lafayette, we encourage and welcome visitors to experience and learn more about our community through a personal tour or by attending one of our events. You can easily request to be put on our mailing list to be notified of an event and/or arrange a tour by contacting 215-214-2877 or visiting

Prepare for a Stress-Free Move
Once you've made the decision to move, it's time to start organizing and planning. While at first, it may feel overwhelming, with proper planning and organization, your move can be a stress-free experience. Breaking tasks down into manageable steps is a great first step. Take the time to decide if you would like to engage family or friends, or the expertise of a professional downsizing (or as we like to say “right-sizing”) expert.

Decluttering, donating, or selling items you no longer need can make your move lighter. Properly labeling boxes and prioritizing essential items will ensure easy unpacking. And amid all the energy and excitement, remember to prioritize self-care and rest.  At The Lafayette, our helpful team specializes in helping you find the right resources, so you can spend your time getting acclimated and involved in the community.  

Your New Home Awaits
Moving into a senior living community can be an exciting leap forward. It’s the start of a new chapter and autumn is the perfect season to get to know new neighbors, meet resident ambassadors, and participate in events as we enter the holiday season.

At The Lafayette, we would be delighted to introduce you to our vibrant community and all of the possibilities that await! For more information, visit or call 215-214-2877.
