A: There are several services, organizations, and individuals that can make it easier. A Senior Move Manager can offer one-stop shopping for downsizing, organizing, and coordinating your move. Look for one that belongs to the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM.org). Consider eliminating unessential furniture or upholstered items that are threadbare or excessively worn. Tuck away your favorite collections, photographs, children’s artwork, and memorabilia. Finally, examine overstuffed closets. Crowded closets look too small to use and it’s possible a lot has been accumulated over the years. Remove everything except in-season clothing from bedroom closets. Keep linen closets organized and place your nicest towels and washcloths in them. Keep in mind the emotional toll for every-one involved when selling your senior parent’s home, and perhaps use a REALTOR® that has a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) designation.
