January is always the month that gets us thinking about finally getting organized. Even the most put together people have a room or closet they avoid.

The holiday season is once again upon us. And for most of us it is a joyous time, but for many seniors this time of year can be hectic and even depressing, depending on their mental and physical state. Good news, everyone can help contribute to happier holidays for the seniors in their lives by just following a few tips:

A little Help cleaning up is now available!

Who will you trust with your life’s possessions? What is this going to cost? What will they do?  All of these questions run through your head when it is time to move. The first thing you need to do is get a couple of estimates.   We have compiled a list of questions to ask your potential mover so your task will be less daunting.

Typically when you call a mover, you pack, and they pick up, and deliver your possessions.  On occasion they may even offer a packing service.  But in the world of an older adult this may not be enough to get them comfortably through a move.

"I was recently was privileged to have the services of Seniors On The Move Niagara in my home. I decided to give them a call after I saw their ad on myPelham.com. I noticed that they not only move Seniors – they also help people go through their stuff and organize. The whole process was wonderful at a reasonable price. I totally, highly recommend Juanita and her team at Seniors on the Move." ~ Deborah Marie Forrester

One of the many things we have learned while being in the downsizing business is it is such a pleasure to "Give While Still Living".

If you have had the experience of moving older family members to a new home you have seen first hand how much stress these moves can cause. I have recently become aware of the labeling of this phenomenon as Relocation Stress Syndrome, or transfer trauma. It is thought that RSS can affect behaviour, mood, morbidity and even mortality. Symptoms can include sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and disorientation. If the senior already suffers from dementia, physical frailty or sensory impairment there can be additional confusion and agitation. The effects can be worse if the move is not being made by choice, and may still exist even if the senior had made a willing decision.
