The leaves are beginning to change, the air starts to get crisp, and you can finally wear your favorite sweater without being too hot. Finally, autumn is around the corner! While there are many things you may think about during this season, moving is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.

If you are considering moving into a senior living community, there are several benefits of choosing to do so in the autumn season. As summer comes to a close, our team at The Pavilion Senior Living, with locations in Lebanon and Carthage, Tennessee, is sharing some of the reasons that the fall season could be the best time of year to move into a senior living community.

Peak Moving Season is Over

According to Hire a Helper, “40% of all moves in the United States take place during the summer months of June, July, and August [and] Spring months (March, April, May) account for 29% of all moves.”

Because families with children do not have to worry about school and college students are moving back into their dorms or apartments, it makes sense that summer would be the peak moving season. But, because of this demand, the prices of moving supplies, rental equipment, storage units, etc., usually increase during this time.

However, by waiting until one of the autumn months to move into a senior living community, you avoid the rush as well as benefit from reduced pricing on the supplies and rentals you may need.

Better Moving Weather

Depending on where you currently live or are moving, summer weather can be hot and pose serious health threats, especially to older adults. On the other hand, autumn offers mild temperatures that can make the physical part of moving more comfortable to complete while still providing plenty of daylight well into the evening hours.

Additionally, if you wait too long, the winter weather can present its own challenges for moving. Again, depending on where you live, the snow and ice can make it more difficult and less safe to perform the physical aspects of transitioning into a senior living community in Tennessee.

Just in Time for the Holidays

The holiday season is a magical time, but if you live in a private residence, decorating your home and maintaining it during the winter can be a lot to handle. Fortunately, senior living communities enable you to celebrate these special occasions with others without worrying about home maintenance.

If you choose to move into a senior living community in Tennessee in the fall, you will have plenty of time to settle into your new home before the holiday season begins. Not only will you have time to unpack, make the space yours, and relax, but you will have moved just in time to be able to decorate for the holidays and make new memories in your new home.

This is such a special way to begin your senior living journey.
