As seasons are finally changing, it is the perfect time to help mom and dad clean out the garage or do some yard work before winter takes over. Now is as good a time as any to help your parents with seasonal maintenance. If your elderly parents are not utilizing any senior living services, this will put more pressure on you to help maintain your parent’s household.
Just as the seasons change, and the summer heat gives way to a cool autumn, so do the seasons of life. Moving is a daunting and intimidating process, especially when combined with the emotions that come from the process of aging and moving into assisted living. Moving into assisted living comes with the complication of downsizing from a house into an apartment or condo-sized space. Most families do not know where to start in the moving process. After an assisted living community is selected and move-in date is set, it’s time to discuss what items they will take to their new home.
