Moving a senior loved one could bring them closer to their family, make sure that live in a safer home environment, and encourage them to live a more active lifestyle. Whether your parent is considering moving in with you, downsize and relocate to a senior apartment, or transfer to an assisted living community, here are some moving help recommendations to help you make the transition a breeze.
Moving Help: Tips When Moving A Senior
Delegate the moving tasks
A lot of seniors have a lot of collections. If your parent is downsizing, then they have to leave some of their things behind.
- 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.
