Relocating an aging loved one could help make sure that they’re living in a safe home environment, they’re closer to family, and can live a healthier and more active lifestyle. Whether your parent is moving to an assisted living community or perhaps you need help with senior downsizing, or to your home, there are things you can do to make the transition smoother, simpler, and organized.
Planning For The Organized Move Of An Aging Loved One
- Assign Moving Responsibilities
Most seniors have spent most of their lives gathering meaningful things. If your aging loved one is downsizing, they will eventually have to leave some of their things behind.
Begin small – Ask your loved one to begin with a room that doesn’t have that much sentimental value such as a guest suit or bathroom. They’ll ease into the process of downsizing with a feeling of accomplishment.
