Moving is a stressful ordeal for anyone, but what if you’re a senior or you need to help move senior parents? Older folks can have a different experience than younger, and the process of downsizing and relocating to a new home is overwhelming. Here are four things to think about before you start moving in Denver:
- Downsize possessions: Often times, seniors end up moving somewhere smaller and downsizing. It’s key to start planning ahead early and to start selling and donating items. This will help reduce stress and make sure that unnecessary items are not moved and applied effort. If you have a lot of canned good, paper products, or frozen food – try and use as many of them before you move. If you don’t, consider donating them to a local food bank.
- Documents: Getting medical records transferred is a daunting process, so the sooner you get on it, the better. If you are moving states, it’s important to make sure to have the insurance’s approved list of medical providers in the area. Also make sure that legal documents are in order and up to date.
- Consider a full moving service: Packing, sorting, setting up, and just moving in general is a strenuous process. Make moving less arduous by hiring a full service moving company that does every little bit of the work for you. From packing, to moving, to setting up, let them take care of the whole project.
- Pack a survival bag: Pack a bag of essentials for moving day – medications, eyeglasses, important papers, etc. It’s important to make sure that you don’t pack anything vital for you to get through the day comfortably and safely.
