Moving, even under the best circumstances, is one of life’s more stressful experiences. If you are moving, downsizing, or selling a house due to the death of a loved one, this process can be overwhelming.
Perhaps you are in an emergency situation, having to pack up a family member’s home due to a life changing illness or a sudden death. Not only are you grieving, but you shoulder the responsibility of inventorying, donating and selling another’s belongings.
You may have the additional stress of taking time off of work and the responsibilities of your own family, and you may be the only person that this task falls upon.
Or maybe you have just lost a spouse and are facing the prospect of moving into assisted living or a retirement community. If you don’t have family members close by to help with this process, it can be daunting.
