20 Apr, 2021
What happens when you need to move your aging loved ones out of their home? You need a better storage solution than storing those items in your home or garage.
Yuba City, CA is a quaint city with a population of about 66,000 people. Most of the residents here own their homes which isn’t a surprise when you consider the variety of things to do in Yuba City.
There are lakes to enjoy, the Millennium Family Entertainment Center, and many different restaurants in the area that make Yuba City popular with people of all ages. (Add links to these)
As our parents age, however, there comes a time when they are no longer able to live alone in their home. There could be numerous reasons for this, but no matter the cause, the stress of having to move your aging loved one from their home can be stressful and overwhelming.
Why you need to find a better storage solution for your aging loved one’s items.
You need to find a better storage solution for your loved one’s items to help reduce their stress and yours. The process of moving your loved one and finding a place for their items can be extremely stressful.
The items you’re storing maybe for a long or short period of time. Not knowing can create more stress for everyone involved. Using a self storage unit for your aging loved one’s belongings can help reduce stress because of the flexibility it provides.
Self Storage units provide solutions to the many unknowns that are involved in the process of moving your loved one out of their home. Do you know how long their items need to be stored? The uncertainty of the situation could cause long-term stress.
Did you know that some self storage units provide month-to-month contracts?
Month to month rental agreements provide a solution for:
- Unknown timeframes. Whether your aging loved one’s items need to be stored or a month or a year, you know they will be safe and secure. You should have to commit to a long-term contract especially in cases such as these.
- Years and Years of collected items. Many of our aging loved ones have been in the same home for over 20 years. This means that many items have been collected and it will take time to go through them. Having these items in a self storage unit allows you and your loved one the time you need to go through everything that has been accumulated over the years.
- Memories that you aren’t ready to throw away. When you are moving your loved one out of their home, you need a better storage solution so you all can take the time you need to sort through the memories you aren’t ready to throw away.
You shouldn’t be rushed through this time. Your loved one shouldn’t either. Both of you need to take the time you need to adjust and move through this life-changing process.
Give yourself and your loved ones more time by finding a better storage unit.
There is enough stress that goes along with the process of moving your loved one out of their home. The last thing that either of you needs is the stress of having to sort through or sell anything right away.
It is also possible that the move is temporary. Or, is this a short-term solution? Once in a smaller place, they will need their furniture again. It is also possible that they will need more intensive care and losing all their things along with their independence is too much to handle.
For some, they are just moving into a smaller place that is easier to take care of. They no longer have the ability to handle landscaping and the upkeep of a larger home. They are downsizing and unsure of what they want to keep.
No matter the situation, a self storage unit can offer many options and limit the stress of the situation.
