Help with packing their things:
Elderly people have a whole world in their rooms. They tend to cling on to memories which make them keep stuff for decades. If someone else touches, misplaces or removes their things, it usually upsets them. It is best if they do the task themselves. Discuss the move with them and tell them to start early. Help them in the organization. Provide them with boxes and compartments to store their everyday items and medicines handy.
Help with the kids:
Elderly in the house can be blessing in every way but when it comes to the kids they are much more than a blessing. They can engage the kids with themselves by making them paint, play or write in a corner of the house which is safe. They can also take them for outdoor activity when you are moving unsafe and heavy objects. Kids will get a chance to bond with them during this house removal.

Keep things uncomplicated and safe for them to work with. Also keep in mind their vulnerability to hurt themselves. So just like kids, keep a keen eye on them as well. Do not make them stress themselves during this house removal.
