Storage for Elderly Parents

dreamstime_xxl_34213230One of the most common situations we see is when adult children are helping their elderly parents transition from their home to an assisted living or nursing home facility. Their parents have amassed lots of possessions over the years, and now that they’re moving to a smaller residence, they need somewhere to store those valuable items. The family may have a garage or estate sale, but those precious heirlooms that will be handed down someday need to be stored properly. The children often take on the task of finding a storage unit, either because their parents aren’t able to drive themselves to the facility, or they don’t have the financial means at the moment.

Helping a Friend in Need

We all have friends who we rely on, and we know they’ll be there for us through thick and thin. We also know that we will do whatever we can for them when they’re going through a tough situation. A friend may need to move unexpectedly, or some other life change may require them to store some of their belongings for a few months. They may not have the time or energy to look for a storage space, and that’s where you come in. Our staff can show you our standard and climate-controlled options, and recommend the best unit based on what your friend needs dreamstime_xxl_58373246to store. Your friend will need to sign the lease, since the belongings are theirs, but you can gather all of the necessary information for them, including cost, location, etc. Taking some of the stress off of their shoulders can leave them better able to focus on whatever change they’re dealing with at the moment.
