Considering downsizing?

For seniors, and their children/families, when the time comes, helping seniors downsize and move can be a daunting task. The checklist and hours of commitment to these tasks to help seniors downsize and move is long.

People downsize for many reasons, often more than once in their lives — like when your kids move out, or when you decide, you do not want to maintain a large house and yard. Other reasons may include a change in mental or physical health, a preference to move closer to friends or family, the desire to simplify your lifestyle, or making the transition to a retirement community.

For seniors, and their children/families, when the time comes, downsizing can be an overwhelming task. It can be challenging to make all the decisions involved, let alone, determine what decisions need to be made. It can be beneficial to think about downsizing early so you have as much time as you need to go through items and make appropriate decisions. Leaving it too late can result in feeling stressed and rushed. If moving day is approaching, determining what to do with a lifetime collection of treasures can become quite overwhelming.
