Helpful Hints for Moving Your Parents

Remaining in a beloved family home until the end, with its familiar creaks and memory-filled rooms, is the desire of many seniors. But all too often, adult children are faced with the realization that their parents can no longer handle home maintenance or need supportive services to remain independent, whether driving to stores or dressing in the morning.Truck on an open road

Though home care agency caregivers can visit throughout the day or spend the night, they can’t replace the security, services and camaraderie found at assisted living communities. Even if parents are willing to move to a community, this doesn’t guarantee moving will go smoothly; unlike other moves made during a lifetime, this move will likely be the most difficult one a family will face.

This is why SeniorHomes.com is taking a look at the moving process. This week, in the second part of a three-part series, we provide tips from experts on the moving process itself, from packing to unpacking.

Get more helpful hints in Part 2 of our moving series, “Strategies for Successfully Moving Your Parents.” For more moving advice, check out the first part in our series, “It’s Never too Early to Plan a Move,” and keep our Senior Moving Center bookmarked.
