Staying Active at Rayzor Ranch Apartments

Take a look at the ways residents at Rayzor Ranch senior living can stay active without leaving home!

Most Underrated Amenities

In the world of apartments, some amenities tend to get all the love. Resort-style pools, fitness centers, and stainless steel appliances are some of the heavy-hitters (and we have them all, of course), but there are plenty of amenities at our Rayzor Ranch apartments that truly make a difference, even if they aren’t as flashy. Here are some of the unsung heroes of our Denton senior living community!

Community Garden

The community garden at The Vista at Rayzor Ranch is one of our favorite spaces. Not only does it add beautiful scenery to our community, it also provides opportunities for residents to come together and take part in creating something amazing. If you loved gardening at your previous home, there’s no need to give that up when you move to The Vista.

Walk-In Glass Showers

Walk-in glass showers are a thoughtful touch to our apartment bathrooms that help keep residents comfortable and safe. Besides looking great, these walk-in showers help reduce falls or strain that can occur when stepping over the side of a tub and offers a more accessible option for those with limited mobility.

Storage Units

One of the few downsides of moving to a senior living apartment for those who previously lived in a single-family home is reduced storage space for all the things you love. At The Vista at Rayzor Ranch, we ensure you have plenty of space by offering on-site storage units so that your favorite things are never far away, and you can rest easy knowing everything is safe and secure. Ask our management team about this awesome amenity!

Dog Washing Station

Bathtime can be a hassle for dog owners, but the on-site dog washing station makes it so much easier. With a large tub, flexible hose, and great water pressure, this amenity helps you clean, detangle, and dry your pet without getting fur all over your apartment shower.

Responsive Maintenance 

Although not traditionally categorized as an amenity, a responsive maintenance team is far from a sure thing when choosing between apartment communities. Luckily, at The Vista at Rayzor Ranch, our residents enjoy prompt and thorough maintenance from our awesome team of maintenance professionals. Plus, you can easily submit maintenance requests through our convenient online portal. Big shout out to our maintenance staff for the peace of mind you add to our residents’ lives!

That’s it for our top underrated amenities at our Rayzor Ranch apartments!

How To Move Awkward Furniture

We like to make it easy to move into our senior apartments in Denton because we know moving can be a major undertaking. That goes double if you have a lot of heavy or awkwardly shaped furniture to get through the door and potentially even up a flight of stairs! Luckily, there are a lot of steps you can take to make moving awkward furniture easier and keep both your body and your home protected along the way. Plus, these tips also work great for existing residents adding new pieces of furniture to their home.

Buy or Rent a Furniture Dolly

“Lift with your legs and not with your back” is great advice, but “put it on a dolly” is even better. You’ll exert way less energy when you’re rolling your furniture along instead of lifting it or dragging it, so it’s kinder on your body as well as your floors. You can easily buy or rent a dolly at a store like Lowe’s or Home Depot. Uhaul will also rent out dollies and other moving supplies. 

Buy or Rent Lifting Straps

Where a dolly won’t cut it, lifting straps can help. These straps wrap around your body and then around the object being lifted to provide extra support and stability during the lift. They’ll also help you find the most comfortable position to grip your furniture because you don’t have to worry about your grip strength as much and can focus more on keeping the object stable and moving it carefully.

Fully or Partially Disassemble It 

Taking the legs off a table or sliding the drawers out of a dresser can turn a challenging lift into a doable one. Not only does this make the object lighter, it can also make for a more convenient shape to carry through doorways, narrow hallways, or around tight corners. This is especially helpful if you’re adding new furniture to your apartment and need to maneuver around the furniture that is already in your living areas or bedroom.

Protect Floors and Doorways

Moving into or out of a home can result in accidental scrapes and scuffs to either your home or your treasured belongings. That’s why laying down plastic tarps, wrapping blankets around sharp corners, or renting moving blankets made specifically to protect your furniture can help you move in safely and without accidental damage. 

Putting furniture sliders on the bottom of heavy furniture can also help protect your floors while you move in or out of your senior apartment in Denton.

Get Help 

This one may be obvious, but whenever possible, don’t move furniture alone! Whether you decide to hire movers or ask a friend or two to help you, you’ll save yourself a lot of strain and potential damage compared to pushing yourself to your limits to move your awkward furniture yourself. Some movers can even be hired by the item, which helps keep costs low while still ensuring you have the help you need for your heaviest and most awkward items.

We can also assist you by recommending local movers we trust and helping you coordinate parking for a moving van, etc.! Don’t hesitate to ask us for help with your moving logistics. That’s part of our commitment to creating a hassle-free living experience at our Denton senior apartments.

That’s all our tips for moving awkward furniture! If you found this post helpful, be sure to bookmark our blog page for easy access to future posts.
