    Top Things to Do When Moving a Loved One into a Nursing Home

    Elderly loved ones are an important part of many people’s lives, whether they be a mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or even an unrelated family friend. In many situations, it seems like they have always been there to lend a helping hand, encourage us in times of need, or offer wisdom, all while being a shoulder to cry on as well. As such, when it comes time to return the favor, we want to do whatever we can to help them while doing what is best for them at the same time. As time passes, people grow older, and with older age, many people often become more reliant on others on a consistent basis.

    SMARTBOX understands from first-hand experience and from talking with our valued customers that there are many different aspects and variables that make up the relocation process. If not properly organized and planned, the experience can take its toll on everyone involved. A large part of being properly organized and having a detailed plan during this time is figuring out what to do with all of the stuff you currently own – what to keep, what to throw away, and what to give away or sell. When this question is raised, many people often decide to have a garage or yard sale. Your family, friends, and neighbors all come over and peruse the spread of items that you no longer need to see if they can put them to good use. They may try to bargain with you, or they may pay the exact prices that are listed on the items. Either way, you just want to find a way to get rid of them; after all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Listed below are four key things to keep in mind when you decide to have a garage or yard sale.
