[ARCHIVED] Orange County to host presentation on decluttering


The Orange County Department on Aging and the Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource Team invite the public to attend a presentation, Decluttering: What Has Value, on October 12.

The older we are, the longer we’ve had to accumulate things. As time goes on, many of these items impact us emotionally, often bringing up memories or nostalgia which can provide even more significance and comfort as we age. Even for items that don’t hold sentiment, it can be overwhelming to know where to start when it comes to decluttering.

Though it may be hard to discard possessions, holding onto too much, especially as an older adult, can decrease mobility, increase the risk of falling, and impact our mental health. Join Elizabeth Hirsch with The Downsizers as we continue the decluttering series and learn together about where to start, what to focus on, and how to make progress on our decluttering goals. We’ll also discover why decluttering is important to an aging in community plan and realize the potential of reselling belongings with value, along with what does not have value.

The event will take place on Thu., Oct 12, from 4 – 5:30pm at the Passmore Center in Hillsborough and is hosted by the Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource Team. 

Please register by Wed, Oct 11 with the Passmore Center front desk at 919-245-2015. 

For more information, please contact Lydia Arnold at or 919-245-4276.
