Moving a Senior Parent

Moving a senior parent to another home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home can be stressful and difficult, but a DFW estate liquidator can make it easier. Estate liquidators focus on taking the items that have been accumulated over a lifetime, and selling them quickly and efficiently, putting cash in the previous owner’s pocket and making the sale of those items much less difficult. While many people try to hold estate sales themselves, hiring a knowledgeable company can make things much easier.

One of the most valuable reasons to hire estate liquidators is a lowered level of stress. Organizing an estate sale and promoting it enough that plenty of people come to it can be complicated, and can take time that you may not comfortably have if you’re busy trying to move a senior parent into your home or into a facility that can ensure they get proper care. Statistically, seven out of 10 people will need assisted living or some type of long-term care. Since it’s something that will happen to the majority, planning for it is important, and working with an estate sale company can be a big part of that planning.

When you’re ready to choose a company to help sell your senior parent’s things, there are some dos and don’ts to consider. For example:

  • Do make sure the company is licensed to provide the services it’s offering.
  • Do talk to the company and get your questions answered.
  • Do find out the procedure for selling your senior parent’s things, so you understand what will happen.
  • Do ask about the price, so you know what to expect.
  • Do respect your senior parent’s wishes as much as possible.
  • Do understand the value of the items you’re going to be putting into the estate sale.
  • Don’t be afraid to question anything you don’t understand.
  • Don’t worry about trying to handle things yourself
  • Don’t try to do too much, when you have other stressful issues to handle.
  • Don’t be concerned about feeling sentimental. That’s normal.
  • Don’t work with any company you don’t feel comfortable with.

Overall, moving a senior parent to another type of living situation isn’t always easy. You have to expect and be ready for some stress and difficulty, but you can also minimize problems as much as possible by making sure you have estate liquidators lined up to handle all the antiques and valuables. When you do that, you can rest assured that your senior parent’s belongings will be handled the right way, and you can avoid the stress that comes with the organization and management of an estate sale. Instead, you can focus on making sure your senior parent gets settled in their new place, where they feel safe and will get great care.
