TASS Tips: Ways To Organize Your Home
- Keep a clear, wide pathway for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches and/or scooters.
- Check all medications, both over-the-counter and prescription for expiration dates.
- Check all food in pantries, refrigerator and freezer for expired food.
- Keep all extension cords, telephone wiring (landlines) and lighting cords away from walking pathways
- Don’t use throw rugs; they are a tripping hazard.
- Don’t put things that are too high to reach; keep them at eye level or below if possible.

“A good system shortens the road to the goal.”
–Orison Swett Marden
I have always loved the harmony of neatness and order. Growing up, I enjoyed organizing my mother’s kitchen and bathroom drawers, and continuously found satisfaction in knowing that everything is in its proper place.
Nothing makes me happier than solving a unique storage or organizational challenge through creative and resourceful ways—especially for the senior population.
I provide services like downsizing and decluttering for older adults, facilitating an easy transition into a smaller home or an assisted living community. For those who decide to move in with a family member, I can help make that living space welcoming and functional for everyone. I work alongside my clients and their loved ones to select, purge, and reorganize a lifetime of possessions; empowering them to begin their new journey in a comforting, safe, and efficient manner.
I consider it an honor and privilege to work with our senior population. It’s my goal to make every transition a positive experience so that our seniors can thrive in their new space!
