Moving an elderly family member can seem like a daunting task but making sure you have an experienced and empathetic mover by your side makes all the difference. To ease your transition we have come up with some tips from our years of service as Vancouver Movers.

Vancouver Movers

1. Picking Vancouver Movers
This is one of the most important steps in the process. Because the moving process isn’t always easy for the elderly. Vancouver Movers want to make sure to take every step and decision with care. The amount of change happening is drastic and this can end up being incredibly stressful. When picking Vancouver Movers you have to factor in things like customer service, experience, and reliability. Vancouver Movers make sure to use our experience moving elderly family members and apply that to our customers.
You have to make sure involvement is consistent with every party. You want to have your loved one feeling like they are being communicated and given choices but also that you are supporting and involved in the move as well.
3.Plan Ahead of Time
Moving can be a stressful time, especially for elderly loved ones.  You want to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible so planning ahead of time is key!  Leave enough time so no one is feeling rushed or stressed – make sure there is enough time to move through your checklist at an appropriate pace.
4. Organization and Scale Back
Make sure things are organized in a way that makes everything easily accessible to your loved one.  Cleaning out house and downsizing is difficult; you want to make sure you help with this process as much as possible.   You can even use the 1 2 3 method of sorting. 1 is keep, 2 is maybe, 3 is donate. Then you take the number 2 pile (maybe) and split by keep and donate – giving your loved one time to reduce the amount of items they own in a non traumatic environment.
