Helping after a Loss.

Whether you are the executor or a family member, or both, Just In Time Solutions can help you. We want you to be able to grieve and focus on family, not the daunting task of “what to do with all the stuff?”

We can help, sort through items, walk you through the best way to re-home unwanted items, pack and prepare items for family and friends, remove garbage and recycles and only leave you with your keepsakes and memories. Sounds too easy? Good, we want it too be. 

The hardest decisions we want you to have to make is who gets what. Once that is decided, our job begins.  We have over a decade of built up resources and contacts and on the job training to help you navigate, what is traditionally, an emotionally stressful time.  It could be a family home of 50 years, a retirement home apartment, or a storage locker of buried treasures; we can help. We have often hear from clients “that would have taken months”, or “how could we have done that without you?”, or “my Mom would be so happy to know her items went to people who could use them and not the garbage”. We may not have personally known your loved one, but our goal is to treat their items and their space with respect.

We can help seniors, vulnerable people and essential moves during this lock down. We are here for you!

If you, or someone you know, has lost a loved one or is responsible for an estate, please contact Just In Time Solutions and let us help you, so you can focus on what truly matters; remembering and grieving.

This past week in South Western Ontario parents, educators and the general public have been sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear is the “Work to rule” for all CUPE members will turn into a full blown strike.

Now, this may not seem to most as a “Crisis” but to many families who have children with special needs just the talk of a strike sends them into “MayDay…Mayday” zone. And this got me thinking, are you ready for a crisis?

There are plenty of things that we have control over in our lives, but there are many we don’t. Emergencies, tragedies and unforeseen crisis are all things that we would rather NOT think about, much less prepare for. But as we get older we realize that we have family who depend on us. Whether it’s our aging parents or our growing kids there are people in our lives that depend on us. And what would happen if you couldn’t take care of those commitments? Could anyone of your family or friends step into a most likely stressful situation and take over? Would they know where to begin?

Our goal when organizing someone’s home or space is to make their lives as simple and stress free as possible. Whether that means moving the dishes from one cupboard to another so that you’re taking less steps to empty the dishwasher or if it means that we set up a system with all your important documents and communications so that it can be found in a moments notice by anyone.

Don’t take the fact that “you know” where everything is for granted, because there could be a time when you’re not available and things need to be done. The last thing anyone needs is to be rooting around trying to find the details of your everyday life and the information that is necessary for your dependants to continue with their schedules.

Just In Time Solutions can throw you a life line.

Get organized. Bring all of your schedules together in one place. Whether it’s a google calendar where every person has a different colour code, or it’s a daytime that sits on the counter for everyone to see and contribute to.

Get Organized. Important documents including wills, power of attorneys and contact sheets with Doctor, Lawyer, Insurance and/or child care should be accessible and well labeled within a filing system.

Get Organized. On your mobile devices everyone should have a contact listed under the name “In Emergency”. This is a go to for any bystander or emergency personnel helping during a tragic event.

Trust us….we’ve been doing this for 18 years! There is a weight lifted knowing that in a crisis situation your loved ones will be looked after and you can focus on what’s important.
