Agape Senior South Carolina Provides Tips for Transitioning into Assisted Living

Posted by Elizabeth Hasty on April 25, 2014 at 9:45 AM


The prospect of downsizing can be difficult for seniors facing the move to an assisted living facility. A lifetime of memories associated with possessions can be daunting to wade through for the families and caregivers, but there are ways to help ease the transition for your senior loved one.


Asking “Mom and Dad” to give up so many cherished mementos can be quite difficult and upsetting if not approached correctly.  Begin with helping your loved one think outside the box. Ask your loved one, “Who may benefit from some of the items there is no longer room for in the transition?” Others may consist of the less fortunate, neighbors, or family members. Instead of feeling ashamed or sad for wanting to keep or hold of cherished items, this approach allows your loved one to feel as though they are not only being a blessing to others but their possessions will be put to good use.



Still feeling overwhelmed? Enlisting trusted friends and family to help you clear your loved one's clutter can be an enormous help. Having others around to share your memories can make the process less painful, overwhelming, and time consuming. Consider professional help if needed.
