Americans certainly like their stuff. From family heirlooms to tech toys to sports jerseys, our beloved possessions always have special meaning in our lives. But the trouble is all of those treasures need a place—whether it’s immediately at-hand or tucked away somewhere.
Consider this: More than 220,000 new self-storage units are expected to open in 2019 alone, according to the Self Storage Association. That’s a lot of space for a lot of stuff!
No doubt the directors of health centers, group homes and campsites have witnessed firsthand the volume of belongings their residents bring in, including plenty of comfort items and extras. These are good things that the residents need, but, once again, where to put it all?
Every group living environment must include plenty of appropriate storage for residents’ personal items. There are several advantages that storage provides:
- Reduction in trip-and-fall accidents because the belongings are put away instead of piling up on the floor.
- Reduction in theft of residents’ personal items when the items are kept out of sight.
- Ability for residents to have private, individual space.
- Additional comfort and convenience when residents know their things are close by.
- A cleaner, neater appearance of the residence overall.
