Packing tips for seniors

/ By Editor / 0 comments

Moving is a physically demanding task. Packing your entire household and lifting and carrying heavy items are difficult for any age group. However, seniors might have the biggest problem with relocation. Most seniors have some kind of chronic illness, less strength than the younger generations, and so on. For this reason, seniors should be more careful when organizing relocation. Hiring Miami Movers for Less is a good start but enough. Therefore, here are all the important packing tips for seniors

Plan in advance 

Seniors generally have more time since they are retired. For this reason, they can dedicate more time to organizing their move. Start on time which means a couple of weeks in advance, sometimes even months. Make a moving/packing schedule. Get help. This can either be professional help or help from your family members. Then, start by decluttering your home. You will save time and money if you leave some items behind. However, you do not have to throw your precious items in the trash. Rather, sell or donate your items. In addition to this, you will need some packing supplies. These include the following. 

  • Moving boxes Miami  
  • Bubble wrapping but you can use newspapers, sheets, blankets, etc. 
  • Packing peanuts but again, you can use shredded paper instead 
  • Tape 
  • Labels 

You can either gather supplies yourself or get them from movers. 

Packing tips for seniors – make an essential box 

Moving is stressful. If you have some type of chronic illness, it is extremely important to take care of your health. Taking your medication regularly, eating and drinking water are all necessary things to do. In addition to this, you need to think about your travel plans as well. You always need to have the essentials next to you. For this reason, prepare an essential bag or box. It should include the following. 

  • Your medication 
  • Personal documents 
  • Money and credit cards 
  • Keys 
  • Cellphone and its charger 
  • A change of clothes 
  • Food and water 

However, pack your essential bag last. You will need most of these items during your packing process, especially the meds.

Packing your household 

Start early and pack in stages. You should pay attention to your health first, then on packing your boxes. For this reason, you should pack smaller or valuable items. Use all the packing supplies listed above. First, wrap your items. Then, place it in the box. Fill the box with packing peanuts or shredded paper. Your items should not be able to move inside the box. Then, make sure to seal your box with packing tape. Lastly, label your boxes, especially if the box contains fragile items. As for the rest of the household, hire movers. You should not lift and carry large and heavy items. You can easily injure yourself. Seniors generally have more fragile bones due to their age. If you break some bone in your body, the recovery is long and difficult.
