Should I get this rescue/rehome Senegal?

I found the perfect rescue/rehome bird for me but the problem is that he is used to flying a lot all over the house of the rescue and my apt is not that big and most of the time he would be in my room. .I do plan to put perches everywhere in my room along with play tree and other things to do but I am still worried as is the rescue. *I am worried that if he doesn't get the same amount of place to fly and play around then he can get frustrated which would change his lovely behavior into a nasty one. But damn he was the perfect bird in terms of everything else. He is flighted and I plan on keeping him that way.

He is the very playful type of bird who likes playing with whatever he sees. So I plan to have a lot of toys. He is also super social to the extreme where anyone can flip him and he will lay on anyone's hands. And he is very cuddly and independent as well. He is not loud at all. He is 7 years old btw

So guys what should I do? I told the lady who is very trustworthy and has her own non profit rescue that I am interested and she is right now taking time thinking about it but what do you guys think? I think I can make it work. Eventually after teaching him to recall and wear harness, I can take him out.

If you get him foraging toys to keep him busy while you are out.
And he's allowed out in your room I would say he'll remain the same.

I don't think it will be a problem at all, as long as he can still move about and fly a little bit I'm sure he would be perfectly happy. Like Kate said, give him things to do while you're out like foraging toys, foot toys, shredding toys etc.

Providing he gets plenty of things to do while your not there and lots of attention when you are I think he will adjust.

Could you maybe trial him with you for a while to see how he settles in to your routine?
