Juggling Assistance

Often we only see the value in a service after we have been through the experiences of providing that service ourselves. Someone recently said as much to me regarding my job as a Seniors Move Organizer.  Although she knew what I did she had never fully appreciated what it entailed. That is, until she was faced with her mother’s impending move, and cleaning out her mother’s home.

Most of us go through life assuming we’ll be able to handle any given situation when it arises. And, for the most part, we do.

Then life throws you a curve ball. Something out of left field you weren’t expecting.  And although you think you can deal with it – you can “fit it in” – ask yourself “at what expense?” Something has to give.

Caring for an aging parent is one of life’s curve balls. Having to arrange a move for that same parent, or handling their estate, is another one. We already have so many balls we are juggling that one more will simply cause all the balls to fall.

You either handle it yourself or find someone who can do so on your behalf.

Recognize the reality of the task ahead of you. Recognize its scope. Recognize how much time it will take you and how much spare time you have. Recognize how much experience you have with the tasks that have to be done. Then decide how best to deal with it. You may end up acknowledging that hiring a Seniors Move Organizer will save you time, energy and money. It could be the best thing you can do for yourself – and your loved ones.
