Speak the truth, lovingly

The path to love

It isn’t easy to care for an aging parent. It’s even harder to tell them that you need help, too.

I was asked to intervene when three sisters felt overstressed. All three suffered chronic illnesses; one shouldered the bulk of caring for their increasingly fragile father.

WE ARE KEEPING AN EYE ON YOU


EXPERTISE, SECURITY AND EMPATHY

Anytime I am invited to help an elderly person make a transition, my goal isn’t limited to ensuring a smooth moving day, even though that is an important part of my job. No, my ultimate goal is to secure the person’s best opportunity for continued happiness.

To do that, I do more than ensure the safe handling of a person’s possessions. I strive to ensure that the place they are moving to is right for them. Then I do my best to lighten their load before, during and after the move.

THIRSTY FOR SUMMER? SENIORS, TAKE CARE!

Are you feeling listless? Headachy? Not yourself? Maybe the temperature is getting to you.

It’s especially easy for seniors, who are more susceptible to heat stroke, to overdo it on long, sunny days.

You nip out for a walk around the block but, feeling marvelous, turn the 10-minute leg warmer into an hour-long trek. Or you pause to pull a single weed, then find yourself immersed in a serious gardening session. And I bet you’re caught without a hat. Or sunscreen.

Estate dispersal can be a real worry. Or, worse, it can provoke long-lasting rifts within families. The good news? It doesn’t have to.

Moving late in life is a golden opportunity to take stock of precious possessions and decide who will inherit them when the time comes.

 

DO AN INVENTORY

You’ve pulled a lifetime of possessions out of furniture, cupboards, and drawers in preparation for moving. It’s the ideal time to do an inventory: as you proceed, jot down a list of all valuables, or snap pictures of them.

Take the time to think about your next move

In the last blog, I talked about how confidence and whether or not you feel lonely are important to know when deciding where to move when your home becomes too much. In this blog, I tackle three other key factors when deciding where to live: your health, needs, and finances.

3. Health. Your state of health today and in the foreseeable future can greatly affect your choice. Perhaps you have a degenerative disease, or anticipate requiring more and more help with day-to-day tasks as you age.

Be realistic. To stay independent, at some point you will have to accept outside help. For a residence, the services provided must meet your needs.
