SENIORS: CONSIDERING MOVING? CONSIDER AGAIN

Jun 19th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

If you are retired or soon to be and considering moving again perhaps close examination of the idea begs your attention.

One of the most disruptive experiences in anyone’s life involves moving, relocating, changing life’s routines on almost everything, including where you keep your toothbrush.

No matter your tendency to be obsessive-compulsive, no amount of organization and attempts to reduce the outright agony of making a move, will be possible. If you are faced with heavy moving, that is in terms of emotions, physical demands, uncertainty about the wisdom of doing so, careful examination of your decision is of major import.



SENIORS: SOME CONSIDERATIONS FOR MOVING

Oct 17th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Moving, under the best of circumstances, is almost never thought of fondly. Moving from one place to another is an exacting experience, emotionally, physically and logistically. It always involves you, almost without exception, in ways that are exhausting, exacting, and aggravating. Lifting, packing, sorting, discarding, disagreeing all enter into the equation. If, in addition, this is viewed as your last move, at least residentially, the decisions and dynamics carry with it even more implications and deliberations.

All of which means, undertaking a move, later in life, should be undertaken with as much care and thought as possible. Jumping into it is not advised. Working out the multiple issues which will arise will enable a smoother transition, less frustration, and more satisfaction.
