Preparing to Move

Saint Luke’s Bishop Spencer Place has helped residents move to senior living for more than 25 years. Here are some answers to questions we hear most often.

I’ve lived in my house for 20 years, where do I begin?

Just take it one small step at a time. Start somewhere—anywhere. A room. A closet. A drawer. Doing a little each day will help achieve realistic goals while making progress day by day. Ask family and friends to help with big tasks.

I’m not sure yet what I want to do next, should I wait to downsize?

It’s never too early for anyone to sort and downsize. Waiting until a house is sold leads to stress and exhaustion. Give yourself time to consider what’s most important to you.

What do I do with all this stuff?

Begin by sorting items into Keep, Donate, and Throw Away.

Keep: If you have used something in the last year, then keep it.

Donate: Give away things to organizations or people who can use them and give them new life.

Throw Away: Create a schedule that includes bulky item removal or make an appointment with your trash service provider to haul off a large amount at once.

I’m overwhelmed. Can someone help me?
