PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR ADULT CHILDREN
Many times here in South Florida we deal with family members that live far away – too far to become involved with the daily choices of moving a parent or relative. Using the Move Log section of our web site keeps family members apprised of all the details of their parents’ or relatives move.
Its important to be very careful not to make negative comments about the house they are leaving. Your loved one has cared for this home and may have deep feelings for it. It is possible you even grew up in this house! Negative comments about the house don’t make Mom or Dad feel happier about moving. Focus on how their new home will offer more opportunities for them to be independent, socialize with others and will provide more safety. This in turn will help the family feel less stressed. Stay positive!
with your relative in the sorting process, do a little at a time, 1-2
hours is plenty for one day. Attack one closet OR the kitchen cabinets
OR the bookshelves in the living room. You may be up to all of this,
but I assure you, they are not. Let your relative reminisce over the
items that you two have re-discovered together. This is your moment
– live it. Don’t let it pass you by.
Wow – I can’t say enough. Family is great! Sometimes when dividing up possessions, family doesn’t seem so great. Keep in mind that keeping your family together, and you and your loved one happy, is the main objective overall. Don’t lose sight of the big picture.
