Finding purpose can be difficult for any new assisted living resident, but is only a temporary feeling. No matter where we live, our meaning and satisfaction in life are essential parts of who we are. However, purposeful living becomes more important as we age and may require more effort in assisted living environments.


Stay in contact with loved ones and friends through phone calls, video meets and in-person visits. Small gatherings are highly encouraged!

Meet other residents and staff members. Building connections with those around you is a great way to create a strong sense of community and belonging.


Enjoy the wide range of activities available! They include, but are not limited to, exercise classes, craft workshops, game nights and movie screenings.

Prioritize the activities you personally enjoy such as playing an instrument, gardening or reading.


There is no greater sense of purpose than helping others. Try to volunteer and give back to your community, whether that be within your assisted living facility or with an organization in your local community. You could lead a group activity, help with meal preparation or even lend your expertise by teaching a class on something you’re knowledgeable about.

Finding purpose as a resident in an assisted living facility is possible. As you settle into this new environment, remember that there are always opportunities to create joy and satisfaction in your life. Be sure to stay connected with loved ones, engage in activities, volunteer, help others, set goals and seek out a sense of belonging. By following these tips, you can maintain a fulfilling and purposeful lifestyle in our communities.
