Moving with Seniors

There’s no question that moving is a difficult process for everyone however, it is often an especially sensitive time for seniors. Since they’ve usually lived in the house for most of their life, it is tied to their cherished memories and it has been a place of comfort over the course of their lives.

Moving with seniors may be to a senior care facility or moving into a different house, regardless moving from their long-time home is a very emotional time. Many seniors have accumulated a lot of keepsakes and other items over time; therefore, the move includes downsizing. Downsizing can take a while and be difficult, we suggest working room to room and figuring out which items are essential to keep and what can be donated or tossed. This is a difficult process for many especially when many things hold emotional or sentimental value. Active Movers understands downsizing is difficult and we recommend starting at least a month if not longer before the move date to ensure that you have the time you need to properly sort through your belongings carefully.

It’s important to visit the new place beforehand, there may be narrow hallways or door frames that would prevent bringing certain large items. By being prepared, you will have ample time to decide what to do with things you cannot bring. Some things might be worth trying to sell, or sentimental items you may want to pass on to other relatives. Additionally, if moving to a senior care facility will be a big change, and visiting it before moving will help to prepare and imagine what life in this new place will be like.
