As can be seen in the graph above, the number of deaths decreases more pleasingly. This trend can also be seen in the other German federal states. The increasing life expectancy due to the increasing development of medicine as well as the good care of seniors are mainly responsible for this. Munich offers more than 100 care facilities in order to meet the needs of all elderly people.

Relocation to a nursing home

If no family member can care for a person in need of care at home or if there are no suitable conditions (barrier-free, lift, etc.) for external care, a move to a care facility is almost unavoidable. This step is not only very emotional, but also organization-intensive.

A move of a person in need of care differs in many respects from a classic move. On the one hand, the entire relocation process must be planned and carried out by another person, since the person in question cannot handle the relocation himself. On the other hand, a move to a nursing home does not simply involve relocating a household but dissolving it.

In order to make the whole process as easy as possible, the following points should be carried out, one after the other:

  1. Obtain a precautionary power of attorney - in order to be able to handle banking and legal transactions as well.
  2. Cancel contracts - to save costs.
  3. Set up a posthumous line - so you don't lose any letters.
  4. Sorting out - sorting out the objects together with the person concerned and, if necessary, moving certain objects to the nursing home.
  5. Clear out and store - dissolve the household, give away unusable items and store everything else.

Household dissolution made easy – storage instead of throwing away

A huge problem with a household dissolution is to keep all the furniture properly. Of course, not all furniture is valuable and usable, but they do carry memories. You may be able to separate from some things and put them on the bulky waste or sell them at a flea market. For others it is very difficult, especially at the beginning, to separate and you would like to keep them. Unfortunately, there is often not enough space for this. An external storage room helps to store beloved furniture and memorabilia properly and safely until a suitable place is found within one's own four walls.
