Practically Daughters™ Senior Move Managers
Good Riddance’s Practically Daughters™ program focuses on the specific needs of seniors who are often faced moving from a home in which they have resided for many years, at a time in their lives when they may be experiencing reduced physical performance. Many seniors may need support through this transition especially if family members are unable or have limited time to assist in the downsizing process. When an individual needs to relocate to a retirement community or care facility, our Practically Daughters™ senior move manager program provides the know-how and decision support to organize the home for sale or clearing. Our staff is dedicated to helping families decide what do to with memories that span a lifetime. Through Good Riddance’s Practically Daughters™ program and their partners, excess and unwanted belongings find good homes through sale, donation and recycling. Our seniors relocation specialists organize the entire move including floor plan, packing and unpacking, hiring and supervising movers and setting up the new residence.
Practically Daughters™ Assistance for Aging in Place
Most seniors wish to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. In fact an AARP survey found this number to be greater than 80% of seniors. This "stay at home" approach is also known as "Aging in Place”.
However quite often it is the home that creates the difficulties. Most residential housing is geared to young healthy adults and does not consider age-related conditions such as reduced mobility or limited range of reach. Consequently, homes do not support the physical and sensory changes that older adults encounter as they age. What seem like insignificant home features can have considerable effect, for a person with even minor aging issues. Practically Daughters™’ professional organizers understand that successful “Aging in Place" requires planning. It is important to do a thorough assessment of the home to assure that it is properly organized for comfort, safety and accessibility. We remove clutter and other hazards and work with handymen and renovations experts to install necessary modifications in the home that allow seniors to remain in familiar surroundings and neighbourhoods where support systems are in place.
Practically Daughters™ Bereavement Solutions
For families experiencing grief over the loss of a relative after a prolonged illness, clearing and disseminating a loved one’s possessions often adds to their distress. And if these activities also include preparing the home for sale, the surviving family members may not feel up to the emotional demands that these complexities inflict. Sorting through a parent’s or spouse’s lifetime of possessions brings up lots of memories. If you have grown up in the home yourself, there will be many experiences which are important to recall, even record, in order to say goodbye. Sometimes, conflict develops between children or siblings over who assumes responsibility for the disposition of material items. Having professional support during this difficult process can help to maintain harmony within the family at a difficult time.
Practically Daughters works with families who are faced with having to cope with the logistical problems of the disposition and distribution of their family’s treasured belongings through sale, donation and re-directing to family members. We are downsizing experts who understand how overwhelming this course of action can be and can make it easier
