If you’re helping a senior family member prepare for a move, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Start early: Begin by encouraging your loved one to start decluttering and sorting through their belongings as early as possible. This will help them feel less overwhelmed as the moving day approaches.
  2. Be patient: Moving can be an emotional experience, so be patient with your loved one and offer emotional support throughout the process.
  3. Hire a reputable moving company: Help your loved one find a trustworthy and reliable moving company that has experience moving seniors. Be sure to check references and read online reviews to ensure you’re working with a reputable company. (Check out our reviews – we love helping seniors transition!) 
  4. Offer to help: Don’t be afraid to offer your assistance with packing and organizing. Moving can be physically and emotionally exhausting, so having someone to help can make a huge difference.
  5. Pack with care: When packing, be sure to label boxes clearly and pack fragile items with extra care. Encourage your loved one to use packing materials such as bubble wrap or packing paper to protect their belongings during the move.
  6. Stay organized: Make a list of everything your loved one is moving and where it’s going. This will help you both stay organized and ensure that everything arrives at their new home safely.
  7. Plan for the first few days: Pack a bag with essentials such as toiletries, medications, and a change of clothes for the first few days in their new home. This will help your loved one settle in and feel more comfortable.
  8. Celebrate the new chapter: Moving can be stressful, but it’s also an opportunity for your loved one to start fresh and create new memories. Encourage them to focus on the exciting new chapter of their life that they’re about to begin, and celebrate this new adventure together!
