Preparing to Move Seniors

Guest Post from Always Best Care Senior Services

When a senior needs to move to assisted living or even to a family member's home, it can be a very stressful time. They might need to move because of health issues, the death of a partner, or the inability to afford their home. Whatever the reason, moving can be a very emotional time and should be done with care and understanding. 

Here are some tips to help make a move less stressful on your loved one:

Take it slow: Don't start by packing up the entire house, instead slowly begin the process of packing and moving and never discard anything without their permission. 

Make a list: Make sure you note the belongings that are most important to them and what they are willing to let go. There are some space restraints in senior care homes, so it is essential to take only what matters the most and let go of items that are not as important. 

Show some grace:  Many of the items in their home have memories and emotions tied to them, so never force them to throw anything away that is important to them.

Whether your senior relative is moving into assisted living or is simply downsizing into a more senior-friendly house, you should handle the entire process with care to ease stress and ensure a smooth transition for everyone involved.
