Making a move to age-supportive housing is the very definition of “downsizing”. The spaces are not as big which means, not every possession can move with mom and dad. Imagine having to give away or dispose of half of your “things.” While there have been many books and TV shows dedicated to the art of decluttering, the one thing that often gets overlooked is the human factor of not wanting to let go of a memory. Throwing out a shirt or suit that no longer fits is one thing but giving away a dining room table can be another. The dining room table can represent beloved memories of family holidays, celebrations and milestones. While you tend to replace your wardrobe on a yearly basis, you tend to hold onto furniture. Some pieces of furniture, artwork, bric-a-brac, and accent pieces hold sentimental memories which are hard to let it go.

A home inventory is a list of all the items that you own in your home or apartment. It lists all your valuable items like electronics, furniture, and jewelry, It would also list clothing and linens. You want to have a breakdown of what you have so you can quickly document what you have in the event of an insurance claim.
Often and without realizing it, the longer you stay in one place the more you accumulate. A home inventory may take a few hours or a few days, depending on how detailed you want to get. The time you spend will be well worth it if a theft, fire, or disaster hits and you need to file a claim.
