Senior Downsizing

I've had the privilege to work with some wonderful seniors.  Their stories are heartwarming (and sometimes heartbreaking).   It is especially sad when they are forced to move out of the family home due to illness or death of a spouse.   It is a confusing and overwhelming time.  I remember one client whose husband had advanced Alzheimer's.  His wife could no longer care for him in their home and was moving them both to assisted living.  I was hired to help her declutter and organize her home of 50 years to put on the market.  Her husband was frightened and confused by all the activity and could not remember who I was from visit to visit.  He took to swinging at me with his cane in frustration, as though he were thinking that if he could somehow take me out, he could stop what was happening.
