Moving out of your lifelong house is an emotional experience — especially for seniors. If you’re helping a loved one move, you need to get rid of all the clutter without getting rid of anything with sentimental value.
There are certain items that will make your loved ones feel at home, and can help ease their dementia. But most of the items end up sitting in a storage unit not doing any good.
In this episode, CarolAnne Crosson, an interior designer and founder of A Changing Season, joins me to reveal the most important household items for your loved ones and how to easily transition them into a new home. CarolAnne also explains how to make the most bang for your buck during estate sales and why you should avoid online auctions. Listen now!
