Add some silk flowers to your room
Another great way to brighten up your room is to add some vases filled with silk flowers. Due to allergens, real flowers may not be advised in assisted living situations.
If you have a nice table on the side of your room, put some vases with silk flowers in the center of it. You can choose a multitude of colors for your flowers including red, orange, yellow, or purple. This will brighten up your room and give it a cheery look!
Bring in some of your favorite furniture and possessions
Do you have a favorite chair or couch seat that you just cannot part from? If so, bring it with you to your new assisted living facility. You can also bring some colorful pillows to add to your new bed or chair.
If you own a warm and cozy blanket, bring it with you too! If you have a favorite photo album or some books you want to bring, ask to have a bookshelf put into your room.
So please remember that you can always make your assisted living area feel like home. All you need to do is to decorate your door, add some silk flowers to the room, and bring in your favorite furniture and possessions. Decorating your room will make it look cheerful and happy for years to come.
