Step 3: Label
We love labeling (no surprise there – we’re professional organizers, it’s practically in our blood! If possible, labeling would be our love language!) It becomes even more crucial when helping those with memory troubles. Make sure you are labeling everything – drawers, containers, shelves, etc. This helps during forgetful moments and assists in maintaining organization once complete. Having reminders throughout the home is a good idea too. Add reminders for anything that could potentially become a hazard, such as a stove, curling iron, etc. Place these reminders near the item where it can be easily seen, so they know to check that the item is turned off, unplugged, etc. Be as detailed as needed, treating it as if you are speaking to a person who has never seen this item before.
