When downsizing or moving seniors in a smaller/retirement home it is important to take care of the smaller but really important details that are sometimes overlooked. The space is nice but there is very little storage so decluttering is really important. You don’t need 50 sweaters! The best way to rationalize this is if you are able to move the most important items in first. Once set up you can add other things. Often there is no linen closet and really two sets of bedding and towels are probably enough. Think about purchasing new. The homes are often warmer so extra blankets may not even be needed, although a nice throw on a sofa may be nice when reading or watching television. Any furniture especially if it’s old but cannot be parted with should be steam cleaned to freshen up as should any rugs. All clothing taken, should be washed and or dry cleaned and please do not forget to buy a new shower curtain and bath mat if required. Any items that are unwanted can be donated or sold to pay for the new items. Family or someone like me can take care of these details prior to the move. These small touches make it feel more luxurious and definitely more comfortable.
