After you have decided where to move, you may need to downsize your belongings for your new space, depending upon the home you are coming from.
After you have decided where to move, you may need to downsize your belongings for your new space, depending upon the home you are coming from. Berwick has close relationships with local businesses that can assist with transitions and downsizing, moving, packing and unpacking. Jill Phipps with Home Again Senior Transition Services has been supporting seniors for years, and we have had the distinct pleasure of working with her during many transitions into Berwick.
She says the time to downsize is right now. If you don’t think you’ll be ready to move for a few years, then perfect! You’ll be well organized and ready to go if you start right now. The longer you have, the better.
For many people, there comes a time when our mind makes a subtle shift to viewing downsizing as a good thing rather than the inevitable consequence of aging. Tending lawns and gardens become burdensome and we realize we’re spending a lot of time dusting furniture in mostly unused bedrooms save for the once or twice a year when the grandkids come to visit.
We long for a simplified lifestyle with less chores and more freedom to travel or do the things we enjoy. Unfortunately, one look in the attic or basement may be enough to convince you you’re better off just staying put. After all, someone is going to have to sort all those things you’ve accumulated over the years. They’re not going to fit in the condo you are thinking about and just what are you going to do with all this STUFF?
How to get started right now:
