One of my senior couples is moving and it takes time to sort through many treasures that have been acquired. It's a pleasure to hear stories of where they have come from, a real blessing to be able to share in the process. When organizing with someone and their treasures, you have to give them time to "let go".
I love to organize and I can do it for hours, but usually for the person who is sorting through their stuff it can be an overwhelming experience. Many seniors are moving to apartments where space is limited, and much has to be left behind. The change of moving is already hard enough, but to part with their possesions is really tough too.
Then there's the "big move" and it takes time to adjust to the new surroundings. It can be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the seniors. Family and friends are important at this time, stop by for a visit, go for a walk in the new place, take some time to be there for them so they don't feel alone. Over all it's an adjustment for everyone that involves tons of patience!
