When my elderly parents had to move, it was overwhelming to them. After spending so many years in the same location, uprooting was almost traumatic. But, changes in their circumstances and changes in their health, required that they live elsewhere. Ultimately, we ended up moving them a second time after that initial upheaval, because living independently was no longer feasible. That was when we moved them to Woodland Towers in DeLand.
The fact that my brother, my sister and I were nearby made all the difference. Not everyone has the benefit of family nearby to help pack, enlist the services of movers, make sure utilities are turned on, and help sort through many years of collected personal possessions to cull things no longer needed and figure out what to do with them. There are some professional organizations that specialize in assisting the elderly and can help with some of these duties. I refer my clients to them and I also know of several nonprofit organizations who are happy to pick up donations.
I’m honored that the folks in the marketing department at Waterman Village in Mount Dora refer their clients to me if they have a home in Central Florida that needs selling. I’m very patient and always pride myself on excellent communication. There is no such thing as a silly question. I’m happy to do all I can to make moving on to the next phase of life, whether a retirement community, assisted living facility, nursing home or wherever… as easy as possible.
