We know it’s not an easy task. People can be psychologically attached to a home in which they have lived for many years. Usually the fear is of the unknown. But once the transition is completed, new doors will open. Organization, planning and communication are some of the key aspects during the senior relocation moving process. This will allow for a smoother and less stressful relocation of a senior. At Island Transitions, you will be provided with a trusted senior move manager to help with all of your moving and organizing needs. We have been helping older adults move on Long Island for years and we love what we do!
Aspects of Our Senior Relocation Services
Planning is the key for senior relocation services. Whether you are moving to another state or staying on Long Island, there should always be a strategy in place. What if you reside in another state and are unable to physically assist with a move? This is when the senior moving assistance provided by the team at Island transitions is especially worthwhile and can help with the relocating and moving process.
Managing the Accumulation of Possessions
When people are not in “moving” mode, they tend to become content with the objects around them. Because there is not a reason to remove anything not in use, time will most likely be spent on other activities. Through the years, property accumulates and the feeling to downsize becomes overwhelming. But don't despair, this is where Island Transitions is in a prime position to help with senior moving assistance.
One Step at a Time
Moving is a process. It can't be accomplished in one day, especially if there is a lot to organize. Some people may have very few possessions, feel adventurous and decide on a whim to pack up and leave. But for other folks, it's not so simple. There may be obligations to fulfill or belongings to distribute.
To prevent the overwhelming feeling that there is too much to handle, tackle things one at a time. You may sense some relief by achieving only a small fraction of the job to start. This will boost confidence that you can really attain your goals. Our senior relocation services and moving experts will help along the way with all of these steps. If you have large objects in addition to many small ones, a smart strategy is to start with the largest items first. Not only will this immediately reduce some stress, it will clear up a large amount of space in order to organize your other things.
Once you have relocated some larger items, whether for donation or for money, it's time to strategize on decreasing collections of multiple items. The key is to be aware of what you actually need versus things which you will never miss. Many people with specific collectibles will not only accumulate too much, but acquire duplicates. This is a great place to begin the process. Ask yourself if you really need more than one, in particular if you are moving. Some people worry that they need a second figurine, game or magazine in case the first one breaks or goes missing. Nine times out of ten, with the help of the internet, that object can be replaced. See how you feel after you discard some extra stuff. Give it a few hours or days. All of a sudden, you will realize you are perfectly fine. Then go on to the next batch of items. This will help you to build momentum and the task will be easier. It is liberating to create more space and know that your items will have a new life when you donate them to others.
