A senior relocation

The relocation of a senior is quite different from an ordinary removal. There is more to do than simply packing and notifying all parties involved. It is about saying goodbye to an old home that has been a safe haven for the elderly person for years. A social aspect is involved that can be quite difficult to manage for some people. This is why we have made a list of removal tips to make the transition to a senior home as easy as possible.

  1. Paying attention during the relocation
    The social aspect plays an important part when moving to a senior apartment. It is quite possible that someone needs to move to a retirement community, not always by choice. Maybe a loved one has passed and that is why the inhabitant now needs to move. Not only will he or she say goodbye to the home, but will also say goodbye to a lot of memories built in that home. It is really important to find the time to adjust to the idea of moving. Talk about it beforehand and discuss any wishes there might be. To what kind of home would the senior loved one or parent like to move?
  2. Make the removal feel lighter
    The removal itself does not have to be an emotional or heavy task. It can be quite fun if the movers take it lightly as well. Make sure to point out the positive aspects and make it feel like a new beginning, instead of saying goodbye to old memories.
  3. Visit the health facility beforehand
    Make sure to take your senior to visit the health facility beforehand. He or she can start to adjust to the new environment that will soon be home. A relocation surrounded by family and friends can also feel a lighter and brighter.
