Transitioning into an assisted living facility, or helping a loved through this process, can certainly be a challenging endeavor for many reasons. One eventual concern that may not be on your radar early on in this process is how to deal with a lifetime of personal belongings that very likely will not fit into your new senior living community. That’s where self-storage can help.
Secure Storage for Seniors

Our self-storage units also feature individual door alarms so that you control access to your unit with a personal code.
Our self-storage facilities at ezStorage include 24-hour video surveillance as well. You trust us with the safekeeping of your items, and we take that trust very seriously. You should feel confident before leaving your items with any self-storage company while embarking on the next chapter of your life or the life of a loved one. Our team is prepared to answer any questions you may have in order to provide that assurance, and make this aspect of your senior living transition as seamless as possible.
Adjustable Storage for Seniors
Our units come in a variety of sizes, and you can rent space for as short or as long as you need. You might require more space in the beginning as you decide which items to keep, pass on to relatives, sell or donate to a charity. Our largest spaces can accommodate a four- to five-bedroom house with furniture and major appliances. The smallest spaces we have are perfect for boxes, document storage and smaller personal items. With a number of storage unit options in between, ezStorage will work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs.
Tips on What to Store
Seasonal decorations are ideal for storage. You only need them for a limited time. If you find yourself not needing them in your new home after a year or two, it might be time to sell or discard those items. If you have sentimental furniture that doesn’t have a new home just yet, our climate controlled units can make sure that it’s still in good shape when you’re ready to share it with someone. Documents that you only need to access infrequently are ideal for long-term storage too, just like print family photos.
Our self-storage professionals will be happy to answer any questions you may have—from unit size and features, to arranging a unit for more easy access.
