After the kids have left home, the house is too big for you, or the effort needed to maintain your home becomes too much, you may decide to seek a smaller home. That’s when you need to deal with downsizing. The best time to do all of this is before you move.
Moving for older adults is often accompanied by feelings of anxiety as they become overwhelmed at the thought of going through years of accumulated stuff. The process takes on a whole new meaning if you are moving into a congregate setting - such as a retirement home or long term care, where suite sizes are typically much smaller than your home.
