Most of us will want to stay in our own homes as long as physically possible. Our homes hold memories of the past, the comfort of the present and the possibilities of more things to come. This is how most of our elders feel, but at some point, it isn’t in their best interests to stay where they are.

At this point, you need to have a very difficult discussion – talking to your parents about the dangers of staying at home once their health is failing, and helping them understand that moving into an assisted living centre could be a mentally and physically beneficial thing for them.

How do I Move my Elderly Parents into Assisted Living?

It’s never a nice thing to think about, but sometimes the best place for your elderly parents is in assisted living. Once you have chosen the home they will live in and signed all the paperwork, you need to think about how you’re going to physically move them.

The first thing you will need to consider is downsizing your elderly parents’ possessions. They may not have the same amount of space in assisted living, so you will need to help them sort the valuable and important items from the clutter. You’ll then need to get them all packed, find a way to dispose of all the possessions they left behind, transport everything and then unpack and get them settled. It’s a big commitment, and can be a very stressful time for everyone involved.

At Home Care Removals, we offer support to individuals looking to move their parents into assisted living. We work closely with many care homes and assisted living facilities in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset and London. We can help you manage the entire process of moving elderly parents from beginning to end. We offer downsizing services, house clearance and removals, moving services and unpacking options. We’ll even disassemble and reassemble furniture for them, helping them get settled into their new assisted living.
