Helping the elderly move house downsizing, retirement villages and care homes
Moving house is a stressful time and this can be amplified in our senior years. Moving from your family home can be an enormous challenge both physically and emotionally. Packing up your home – and your life – is not a straightforward process, particularly if you are downsizing and need to say goodbye to some of your most prized possessions. Maybe your favourite armchair won’t fit in your new place, or your collection of antique bottles will no longer have shelf space. Change can be very upsetting.
Are you managing a house move for a senior?
It can also be distressing for relatives who have been tasked with managing such a move, especially if the person or people moving are dealing with any of the more difficult issues that come with getting more elderly.
We work with you to make the moving process as easy and stress-free as it can be. We can advise, encourage, and talk through the process with you and your loved ones. We will also coordinate with the care home or retirement village if this is applicable.
We can do any or all of these things with and for you:
Help with detailed planning of the move as soon as you know it is on the cards
Declutter and advise with downsizing options, including visiting the care home or new property in advance
Pack belongings for you or provide quality, fit-for-purpose packaging materials (with great eco credentials)
Dismantle, install, and reassemble furniture
Pack / unpack
Clear any unwanted possessions, from individual items to entire properties
Provide a full cleaning service prior to new people moving in
Sell items via auction or other means
Organise chattels vaulations for probate
Ship items internationally
