Moving your loved one into a senior living community can bring up many mixed emotions- how can we ensure our loved one has a smooth transition into their new home? 

Is my loved one meeting new friends? Are they happy? Who are all these new people that we are interacting with each day? Families experience many emotions when moving their loved one into a new community- guilt, relief, fear, happiness- for each family there are a unique set of circumstances that have led them to this place.

We are talking about this today with Corey Hermans -Webster, she has a unique background working in different senior living communities, earning two master's degrees, and is a certified dementia practitioner. Corrie is passionate about accessibility, inclusivity, and making those around her feel happy and fulfilled in their lives. Corrie is on the product team Eversound which is an advanced listening system that is designed to use in senior living communities to enhance your loved ones' ability to hear and feel a part of the community.

*How families and senior living communities can support smooth transitions for our loved ones
