Three Comforting Scripture Verses for Seniors Transitioning to an Assisted Living Community

At Autumn View Gardens, we work to make every resident feel comfortable and independent, but we also know that making a major change at any point in life can be stressful. Our staff is available to make your transition to an assisted living community in Ellisville, MO, as peaceful — and even joyful — as possible.

Check out the three comforting Scripture verses below, which you can hold in your heart during your transition, as well as some ways our staff strive to put these principles into action for all our residents.

Psalm 46:1 — God’s Strength Is for You

God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble.

The Bible tells us that God is always with us, helping us overcome our troubles. He doesn’t take those troubles away but provides strength we can rely on.

Sometimes, that strength comes in the form of others. Seniors who make a home at Autumn View Gardens have access to well-trained, compassionate staff members who are called to serve and want to help new and existing residents enjoy their time at Autumn View Gardens. Some of the support services available to every member of the community include:

Individual care plans and on-site licensed nurses and therapists

A 24-hour emergency call system for peace of mind; members of staff are also present 24 hours a day should you need any assistance

Monitoring of chronic conditions to minimize health worries and allow you to enjoy your time

2 Corinthians 6:18 — Within the Family of God

I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

One concern many individuals have when approaching a decision about transitioning to a senior living community is whether or not they’ll be lonely. Luckily, the staff and other residents of Autumn View Gardens really buy into the community aspect of assisted living. Your family and friends are welcome to visit — or even dine with you — if they can, and you can enjoy plenty of social time and activities with other residents if you choose. Some options for engaging with your assisted living family include:

Restaurant-style dining you can enjoy with on-site or off-site friends

Catering for special family events you might want to host

Exercise times, cooking classes and other activities

Outings for cultural events, shopping or dining

Pets are also welcome at Autumn View Gardens, so you can bring a special companion with you when you transition to the community.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 — God Gives You Peace

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

Our staff wants you to be comfortable enough to enjoy peace, whether that comes from a quiet walk on our grounds, time spent in our worship services or after an evening spent playing games and laughing with new friends. While we can’t give you the peace that only comes from God, we do actively support you during your transition and work with you to create custom solutions to your needs.
