Cleaning Their Estate

According to a recent article posted to Well+Good, there are several steps that can be taken to complete this task so that you can also make space for healing which includes:

  1. Enlist help from family and friends or a professional 
  2. Give yourself time and set a deadline
  3. Keep a list of what you’d like to keep as well as inviting family members to do the same
  4. Dispose of unnecessary items first
  5. Celebrate what your loved one cherished most
  6. Take pictures of items 
  7. Sell, donate, or dispose of the rest
  8. Create a ritual for a final farewell after you’ve finished

Be sure to make sure that the home is secure and that you have collected all important documents. This includes financial and legal documents as well as personal records such as birth certificates, passports and health files. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve checked every corner of the home to ensure that valuables which could’ve been hidden are found.
