Dangers of Clutter and Boxes in the Home of an Older Adult
However, these memories take up space. Unfortunately, many times the items and memorabilia gather allergens and create unsafe living quarters. In other words, seniors are facing a sweet and sour relationship with their prized memories. The obvious question is why then don’t they store these memories at a self-storage facility? Well, that is easier said than done. The truth is that the traditional self-storage process and industry is not friendly to senior citizens. Actually, the traditional storage process is very inefficient and tedious.
Starting with much preparation, carrying boxes and then storing boxes and items in a place most likely far from their home. As a result of these challenges, most seniors in Ft. Lauderdale and across Broward County have decided to keep their memories in their home, which creates clutter and unsafe living quarters. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control:
“Deaths from unintentional injuries are the seventh leading cause of death among older adults (adults who are above the age of 65). Falls account for the largest percentage of those deaths. Approximately 25% of U.S. residents aged 65 years (or older) report falling each year.” – Source AARP
