End of life logistics
Facing a home or estate that needs to be closed down and cleared out is not an ideal time to face a logistics puzzle. I sit down with the person in charge of the home (possibly the executor), discuss their needs, and help them make a plan. Are they in need of particular items? Is there a list of people who receive different things? What are those things, and where are those people? Is there a deadline to get the home empty? Is there a need for a catalog of major items? Are things being relocated to storage? We work out the logistics of winding down a home.
Swedish death cleaning
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning is a book by Margareta Magnusson. Much like the book, I walk with the client through the process of downsizing and distributing their possessions before their death. They determine which items are kept and I help dispose of what isn’t getting passed on to someone. I can help catalog items to share with family or attorneys and can also help optimize the space for medical care to happen easily.
