How Self Storage Helps Seniors

How Self Storage Helps Seniors

For seniors, parting with items they've acquired over a lifetime can be an incredibly difficult task.  This forces them to make tough decisions about what items to part with while moving.  Moving can be stressful enough.  Each belonging is attached to a memory, something they have done or places they have been to.  Some items may remind them of a beloved spouse or friend who has passed away.  Moving seniors doesn't have to be stressful; renting a self storage unit can help.

Whether you are moving into a smaller home, downsizing or moving into assisted living, this can be a daunting task.

The Challenge of Downsizing

Seniors who relocate to a smaller home have painful choices to make.  They desire a new home that is affordable, close to family and friends and are leaving behind a house full of memories.  The challenge for seniors is in knowing what to hang onto, and what to let go of.  A storage unit helps make that difficult choice easier by not having to part with everything.

Travelling

Many people travel for long periods after retirement and want a secure place to keep their valuables.  Storage units provide a secure, climate controlled environment for your items.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living facilities have rules for seniors in regards to how much and what kind of items they can bring with them.  For many seniors, they may not want to part with, or bring in, specific valuable things.  Renting a self storage unit will allow them to keep these cherished possessions and ensure their valuables are safe.
