There are lots of reasons why seniors move at, during, or before retirement. Being close to family members or grandkids, moving to warmer weather, downsizing from the family home to a smaller space, moving into assisted living or a nursing home—your senior loved ones might make the decision to move based on any number of criteria. Because your senior family members aren’t able to (and shouldn’t!) do the physical labor of moving themselves, you’ll want to help them find a great partner to work with.

When moving a senior family member, it’s important to remember to keep them at the center of all decision-making and forward progress. When cleaning or decluttering, they should be able to make the call on what should be sold, donated, or thrown away. When organizing, they know better than anyone else how files should be sorted, what goes in each storage bin, etc.
A good way to keep them involved in the process, even if they’re not able to physically help, is to start decluttering and organizing together, one room at a time. They can be involved in the work and provide direction, and going one room at a time can help you keep them on pace. Bear in mind that your senior family member probably has heirlooms, antiques, photographs, and other family memorabilia in their home; sometimes, their move can be your opportunity to help them sort through these items, determine if any items should go to other family members, and be sure that anything antique or fragile is safely packed and secure.
