Moving Help: Tips When Moving A Senior
Delegate the moving tasks

- Ask them to start in a room that contains items with low sentimental value like the guest suite or the bathroom.
- Help them make tough decisions. If your senior loved one has been living in the house for several years, things that seem unimportant may seem essential. Assist them in sorting out their belongings into their keep and give away piles.
- It’s simpler to give away things when you know they’re going to a good home. If an item won’t fit in their new house, then find a friend or relative who will accept it.
Use senior relocation services
