assisted livingYou may be asking yourself, “How can I fit all I want into this smaller space?” With age comes wisdom and the ability to adapt. You may find that you no longer need as much space when you live in assisted living. It’s possible to even enjoy the idea of downsizing into a smaller, more beautiful home.

Let’s look at a few tips to help you downsize so that you can move into your assisted living home when it’s time.

Ask for help

It can be a daunting task to downsize, especially if you are moving out of a home that you have lived in for many years and moving to an assisted living in Myrtle Beach. You can ask your family and friends for help, or hire professional assistance to organize, downsize, and move seniors. You may discover that it is not the possessions you own that bring you joy, but the experiences and people with whom you share them.

Decide What to Keep

You can identify items that you want to sell, donate, give to others, or toss. When you go through your belongings, consider the value and purpose of each item. You should keep only the items that you use and enhance your quality of living. If there are no useful items, give yourself permission not to discard them. Avoid creating a “maybe” pile as you sort through the items. This can slow down decisions and prolong the time it takes to sort through them.

Choose Smart Storage Solutions

The right storage solution can help you save space and keep your organization in order when you move into the assisted living facility. You have many options to store things when you buy furniture with built-in storage. To store extra shoes or linens, maximize storage by using under-bed bins. Use organizers and racks for storage in the bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen.

Make the Most of Wall Space

You’re ready to go bigger if you have exhausted your floor space. To expand your options, make use of the vertical space in your apartment. You can keep mail and keys in a basket on a wall-mounted shelf by your entranceway. Floating shelves are a great way to display treasured items without taking up too much space on countertops or tabletops.

Optimize Interior Design Tools

You can find interior design tools online that will help you create a 2D model of your new room in the assisted living facility. These tools will help you visualize your space and plan how you can maximize square footage. Take measurements and review floor plans to determine storage space.
