Moving is tough at any age, but especially on the elderly. Aside from possible mental or physical problems, older people have usually been living in their current domicile for a while and have built up many cherished memories that they may not want to leave. Moreover, if they are moving due to physical or mental difficulties, they can experience a loss of independence.
Priority Moving and our furniture moving service team are here to offer some tips on how to best prepare your senior parent or loved one for a move.
No matter what sort of housing accommodations you decide on, it is important your senior parent or loved one has the final say in the matter. If they are going to be uprooting their lives and moving from a place of comfort, they should have a determinate decision in what happens. Make sure you talk through the options with your senior parent or loved one and let them know that the decision is ultimately theirs.
If your senior parent or loved one has been living at their current residence for a while, then odds are they have a lot of possessions you will have to go through. Unfortunately, they most likely won’t be able to take everything, so starting about 2-3 weeks before the move, go through their house room by room and decide what needs to stay and what needs to go.
Sometimes the best option is to hire a professional furniture moving service. A professional team will help you carefully pack everything up, move all the heavy and dangerous items, and help you unpack when you reach your final destination.
