Cleaning Out Your Parents Estate in Fairfield County CT. The book "How To Clean Out Your Parents Estate In 30 Days Or Less" is required reading for everyone at Turning Point Estate Services. The Author: Julie Hall also known as The Estate Lady has written numerous books and articles dealing with issues surrounding the aging, illness and the inevitable passing of the generations that have come before us.

Ms. Hall has just released an updated version of this practical guide now available at Amazon.

Julie Hall Book Cover

If you know of someone who may be facing these emotionally charged and overwhelming challenges or, if you are soon to be dealing with this yourself, this is a practical, sensible guide. The book anticipates the difficulties one may face as aging children with even older parents.

The books focus is on dealing with the years of accumulated "stuff" with check lists, supply suggestions and action plans. But, it also goes beyond the issue of easing the clutter. There are helpful resource lists and links. There is guidance and conversation starters for bringing up this difficult subject with parents so you can begin the planning process. There is also information or easing the transition when parents need to be relocated to a more suitable living arrangement.

This can be an invaluable tool for sellers such as executors and trustees faced with closing down an estate, and for family members and caregivers of seniors who need to move to assisted living and must sell their parents home to pay for the facility.  I recommend this book to anyone I meet that is attempting to take on these tasks.

AR members should keep this title on file in the event you come across a potential client in this situation. They will be very grateful for the assist.

This is our primary focus here at Turning Point Estate Services. We assist clients in Fairfield County CT., with transition issues such as dealing with accumulated "stuff" (organizing, packing and shipping, valuation and estate sale, charitable donations) as well as repairing and preparing homes to compete in today's tough market.

Please check out our web page for more details on how we can help in these situations.

Great stuff.  This is such a difficult time for people.  I usually come in near the tail end and I know a lot of people wish they knew this stuff sooner.
