As a professional organizer and Indianapolis senior move manager, I'm afraid I see it regularly in the homes of seniors and elders: houses that have fallen into disrepair or been damaged simply by accumulated weather conditions. After all, our winters in Indiana can be harsh.
In many instances, it's nothing horrible, but time has a way of sneaking up on everyone and everything, and as I help an elder or their caregiver families organize the home or prepare for an estate sale or move, I'm always amazed at how weather can slowly injure a property.
And, of course, it's extremely difficult for seniors or their busy loved ones to regularly check for damage or make repairs. So below I've compiled a list of spring maintenance and repair items to inspect and address. I hope it will serve as an easy tool and reminder for you to help maintain the livability and value of a home anywhere in the Indianapolis area, be it Carmel, Fishers, Geist, Noblesville, Cicero, Broad Ripple, or anywhere.
I wanted to let you know about a great program from a Carmel, Indiana business that helps a very worthy Indianapolis organization and the young women it nurtures: The Women Like Us Foundation of Indianapolis.
The Backroom @ Westclay is a furniture and home consignment studio that has developed a program called "Consign for a Cause." The money raised from this initiative is directed to the Women Like Us Foundation, an organization that I'm happy to be directly involved with and support. So, if you have some items you'd like to consign, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Women Like Us Foundation, here's more information on how you can help. - Rita Woll, Yellow Tag Household Sales.
“Thinking communally is what life is all about,” says Mark A. Roger owner of the Backroom @ WestClay – Furniture and Home Consignment. Recently, Roger put a spotlight on the Women Like Us Foundation’s One Girl at a Time Program (emphasizing empowering young women), The Damien Center (emphasizing empowering persons affected by HIV/AIDS) and the St. Margaret’s Guild (emphasizing the needs of Wishard Health Services) identifying them as beneficiary charities of the Backroom @ WestClay’s Consign for a Cause Program. “The good work that these three charities perform every day for those of high risk make our Program well worth the time,” Roger concludes.
