Transitioning into an assisted living facility is a big change. For those moving out of the place they’ve called home for decades, a place filled with memories collected and stuff accumulated throughout the years, the transition can be tough. Change is never easy, but just because it isn’t painless, doesn’t mean that it can’t be good.
There is an abundance of wonderful aspects to moving into an assisted living facility. Residents and their loved ones can worry less knowing that help is always nearby. With caretakers available at all times to monitor daily activity and consumption, dispense medications, and assist those residents who need help managing route tasks like eating, bathing, going to the bathroom and getting dressed, family members and friends can have peace of mind which is truly invaluable.
While the process of physically downsizing and transitioning into a new place can be strenuous, there is assistance out there to get the job done! On demand storage companies are a particularly convenient and beneficial service to utilize when transitioning yourself, or a loved one, into an assisted living situation. Here’s how!

People amass a ton of stuff during their lifetime. For those who are moving out of their multi-room home into an assisted living community, there’s going to be a lot of downsizing to do which can be both time consuming and difficult emotionally. For those who would prefer not to be a part of the packing process because it is difficult emotionally, or for those who cannot physically handle the motions required to do the packing, utilizing packing services is ideal.
When moving into a smaller space, it’s crucial to either get rid of some of your stuff, and/or store that stuff somewhere else to keep your new place from becoming cluttered, chaotic and over-stuffed. With Zippboxx, the items that need to be put into storage are picked up from the resident, transported into storage and then delivered back when needed. There’s no need to rent a truck, get family members and friends to lend a hand during the process, or ever drive to a self storage facility.
In addition to all of the storage logistics being taken care of, Zippboxx customers are provided with a digital inventory (barcoded and photographed) of their stuff currently in storage. This allows users to quickly, with just a few clicks, pick out things they’d like to have delivered back to them. So even if the person who is moving into the assisted living community isn’t technologically savvy, they can always have a family member or caretaker assist them with selecting what they want and scheduling the delivery.
During the downsizing process, those transitioning into assisted living are going to find a lot of stuff that they no longer need, or want. That stuff can be handed over to a Zippboxx team member to junk! Our junk removal services are the perfect solution for getting rid any excess stuff that will just be taking up unnecessary space in the resident’s new abode, or in storage.
