How to properly prepare to move the elderly ?

Moving very often marks the different phases of our lives. Thus, seniors can opt for a smaller home. This reduction in living space calls for very special preparation. Moving can also be imposed on the elderly. In this second case, it will need very special attention. Maison Genné, with a long experience of moving to Belgium, discusses the best way to help the person to turn this important page in their life.

How do you move an elderly ?

Moving an older person requires specific preparation.For a senior, a change of environment, to be closer to their family for example, can be revitalizing. On the other hand, without consent, forced by the death of the spouse or a loss of autonomy, the move can weigh on their morale.

In both cases, work planning, or even outside help, has a soothing, tranquilizing effect on the joints and the state of mind of the elderly.

This move often involves moving from a larger living space to a smaller one. Then, a serious sorting becomes inevitable, and sometimes unbearable in the allotted time. The use of a furniture storage service is, therefore, the appropriate solution.

External help for moving the elderly

When seniors move, it is essential to manage workloads well without haste. Each task requires its time. This adapted rhythm allows the elderly person not to give up their pleasures and habits between two moves. These breaks allow them to replenish their physical and mental energy. Do not hesitate to ask friends for help in sorting objects and packaging as well as administrative procedures. Sharing these moments also helps to reduce stress and boost the senior’s morale.

Why choose a professional mover to organize the move of the elderly in Belgium ?
