Estate Property Solutions update for February

4th February 2021

Here’s hoping you’ve had a good break and Happy New Year. With Covid-19, we’re so lucky to be in New Zealand. Did you know we don’t just complete projects in Dunedin? We’ve recently completed projects in Papatowai, Twizel, Nightcaps, Balclutha, and Waikouiti.

We assisted a couple of elderly clients declutter and tidy-up in preparation for visitors over the Christmas and New Year period. It was rewarding to help them prepare their home so that visitors felt welcome over the holidays and so that they felt confident about welcoming family and friends into their home.

We also worked with some elderly clients to assist them to remain in their own home for longer and coordinated with some of the agencies to ensure things were done so that they were living in tidier, safer homes and getting a better quality of life.

We have been involved in deceased estates, preparing some of the properties so they are ready for sale, dispersing goods to charities, food banks and arranging the sale of goods.

A major project over the summer break has been working tirelessly with a hoarder to clear the house and storage areas, while coordinating packing, movers and a seamless shift to a new location.

While it’s been a very busy time for us, it’s always rewarding and we’re proud to be making a real tangible difference to peoples lives and the community. As always, its’ a good idea to check in with our elderly and more vulnerable in our community. Are they getting the help they need? Just a quick chat over the fence can make a big difference to their week. It’s a good idea to check in and make sure they’re keeping a record of where they’ve been (smartphone or not!), that they’re making a point of washing their hands, especially after running errands, and ensure their home is clean and tidy.
