Moving Your Elderly Parents

Moving your elderly parents into a retirement home will involve a lot of downsizing.  You, your parents and siblings should go through the house item by item. Try to categorize these items to make the process easier, such as items to be moved, a keepsake for a family member, items to be sold or donated, and items to be thrown out.  Allow enough time for your parents to reminisce as your help them sort out their possessions. This will be an emotional time for your parents, you and your siblings especially if this was your childhood home.  Surrounding your parents with loved ones who are supportive and encouraging can ease the emotional stress of moving.
