5 Ways New Residents Make Themselves at Home at Holiday Retirement
Every Holiday Retirement community strives to make their residents feel right at home, and that begins from the very first day you move in. Friendly staff, caring neighbors and a variety of amenities and activities are part of the experience for all Holiday Retirement residents. Here are five ways you can settle in quickly and start enjoying the next chapter of your life.
Connect with your Resident Experience Coordinator
The Resident Experience Coordinator is like the hub of your new community. He or she helps residents in a variety of ways - physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Your Resident Experience Coordinator can help you with any of your questions, from what time lunch is served to what activities onsite might match your interests.
Say ‘Howdy, Neighbor!’
Most Holiday Retirement residents say their neighbors become like family members. Your neighbors are great people to count on for a laugh or to lend a hand when you need one. They can also introduce you to their friends to help your circle grow. So in your first week, get out and get to know the people in your hall.
Delight in Decorating
Make your new space your own by decorating! Add family heirlooms, pictures of your family or a plant or two to make your apartment feel homey. If you’re stuck on ideas, try asking your neighbors for advice or see if you can take a peek at their rooms. Looking for more inspiration?

Go Out to Lunch (in a Bunch)
Everyone loves lunch, right? All Holiday Retirement communities provide meals for residents onsite, but if you are looking for a great way to meet people, try finding folks who like to explore different eating options. Many communities have an “Out to Lunch Bunch,” which brings fans of good food together for weekly excursions to local eateries. Ask around at your community for more information about when your local bunch goes to lunch.
Become Active in an Event or Club
Every Holiday Retirement community has an array of activities that will appeal to all types of interests. Check your local events calendar for activities like bean bag baseball, happy hour and chair yoga. Or try out groups like the Walking Club, Gardening Club or Adventure Travel Club.
No matter what you do, we’re sure you’ll soon settle in and find a group of friends at Holiday Retirement that fits your unique tastes, style and personality!
