Homes become filled with belongings and items full of memories over time, and sometimes it’s difficult to part with them. If you or a loved one are in in need of home caregiving services, it’s important to reduce clutter the house.

Since de-cluttering is not easy, here are some tips. Start small, find a method that works for you, and assume it will take time to get the house organized (not just a few hours). Concentrate first on the biggest problem areas.

Additional reasons to clear out your home and get organized include:

  • Stress reduction: clutter can have a negative effect on mental health.
  • More space: when there is clutter throughout the house, it’s difficult to find space for important activities and events, such as friends and family visiting.
  • Decrease injury risk: clutter can be dangerous. Items and boxes in hallways or lining staircases can cause falls and lead to injuries in seniors.
  • Improve health: if belongings you don’t use on a daily basis are gathering dust in an attic or closet or attic, this can lead to allergies and a health decline. Improve air quality and health of getting rid of dust and mite allergens.
  • Downsizing soon: de-cluttering is very necessary when you’re about to downsize your home. With less storage space in your new residence, make smart decisions about what to keep vs. what’s not needed.
