Excerpts from article:
There is more to a successful move than just effectively organizing and purging your belongings. There are many factors to consider for it to go smoothly. This list of questions, developed by the editors of the state of California’s ‘’Aging and Long Term Care” web page, helps you cope with the emotional demands of moving and think ahead for ultimate preparedness for yourself or a senior loved one.
Checklist for the Best Planned Move
• Is there a specific timeframe for moving?
• If so, are there other resources you need to enlist for help in meeting your goal?
• Which personal items or furniture will help to create the mood you want in your new home?
• Who will help you evaluate which of your possessions will best fit in your new home?
• Is there a room design or configuration you need in the bedroom or living room to feel centered and comfortable in the new home?
• Do you have memorabilia and religious or spiritual possessions that will help you maintain your identity in the new community?
• Who will accompany you on your moving date? And who will visit daily for the first week, or even the first month?
• Is there a specific ceremony, ritual, or blessing that you would like for your new home before you move in?
• Would you like to send personal moving notices to let friends and distant family know about your new home? How do you plan to notify people about your upcoming move and send invitations to visit?
