When making the move to a long-term care facility, it can be quite difficult figuring out how to go about downsizing and actually making that move. Of course, there are necessities that the person will need as they make the transition from home to a care facility. It is a transition that can be scary for all involved, but especially the person moving. It would be a good idea to take some favorite pictures or a few small items that hold sentimental value for the person. That way, he or she can have some semblance of home in their new surroundings to make the move a little easier. If needed, perhaps another family member might be willing to look after some of the other things the person is unable to take with them. That way, those important items are with someone safe, and can be brought (and taken back) when the person comes for a visit.
