Chattanooga Senior Living Facilities Move-In Information
Moving into a relaxing retirement
Rosewood Retirement Community helps residents maintain a sense of dignity and independence in a warm, homelike atmosphere. Here are a few helpful tips and things to consider when moving into the community:
The apartments are unfurnished, allowing each resident to express his or her individuality. Suggestions for personal items include toiletries, bedding, linens and bath rugs; additionally, furniture such as a bed, recliner chair, rocker, sofa or loveseat, bookshelf, table and chairs, chest of drawers, wall hangings, television, nightstand and telephone are suggested.
Visiting hours are unlimited. The front lobby is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the week and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. Guests visiting after hours can ring the front doorbell to obtain entrance into the community.
Meals and Dining
Meals are served in the dining room or can be served in residents’ rooms during brief periods of illness. Guests are always welcome to join us for a delicious meal. Meal tickets can be purchased from the business office.
Outside food and drinks are permitted in residents’ apartments. Food should be stored in appropriate containers and should be labeled and dated.
Rosewood is committed to providing a healthy environment for residents, employees, families and visitors. Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside of the building.
Activities and Events
Outings, activities and special events are always encouraged. To ensure safety, all residents are asked to sign in and out of the facility at the reception desk.
Transportation is provided for shopping, sightseeing, activities and medical appointments. Residents are encouraged to arrange for transportation in advance with the receptionist.
Enrichment opportunities are provided for residents every day. Activity calendars are posted throughout the community and are available to each resident on a monthly basis.
Staff members are not permitted to accept gifts of money, gratuities or tips. If you wish to donate a gift to the facility, please contact the executive director.
Discharges require a 30-day notice. Adequate advance notice will facilitate a satisfactory discharge. Rent is considered ongoing until all furniture is removed from an apartment.
