How Can You Deal with Clutter in Your Loved One’s Home?


Home Care in Newport Beach CA: How Can You Deal with Clutter in Your Loved One’s Home

Clutter in your loved one’s home sets up a serious potential problem. In fact, she may be more in danger of falling or experiencing other issues simply due to excess clutter.

Set up a Donation Station

One way to make decluttering easier is to designate an area for decluttered items to reside until it can officially be removed from your loved one’s home. This is especially helpful if your loved one prefers to donate items rather than throw them out. Find a box or a spot that can safely house a variety of items. When an item is no longer needed, it can go to the donation station temporarily.

Move Furniture Around

If your loved one hasn’t rearranged her furniture in a while, it might be worth a try. Changing a simple layout in a room can create space you and your loved one didn’t realize that she had. Assuming that your loved one is open to experimenting with her furniture arrangement, try several ideas until you find the right one.

Avoid Dictating to Your Loved One

These kinds of situations can easily get out of hand if you’re not careful with your loved one’s feelings. Regardless of what else is going on, this is your loved one’s home. Dictating to her or requiring her to do something, especially when safety isn’t compromised, is going to make her shut down.

Get Some Expert Advice

There are plenty of home organizers who work with senior citizens. They can help your loved one to organize her home in a way that makes more sense for her changing needs and that focuses on safety. If your loved one has any issues with hanging onto items longer than she should or with hoarding, a professional organizer can make the process much easier.

Consider Maintenance, Too

Once you’ve got your loved one’s home organized in a much better way for her needs, don’t overlook maintaining that progress. Hiring home care providers and working with other family members to help keep up with household tasks and touching up organizational concerns can make a tremendous difference.

Often going at your loved one’s pace is the best rule of thumb when you’re talking about changing her environment.
