We are passionate about supporting My Aged Care clients with decluttering and organising services.
We work with participants to improve their daily living, increase safety in the home, and support independence.

We offer patient and non-judgemental coaching and hands on assistance in decluttering and organising in your home.

Our team are experienced professional organisers, and support older adults who have physical limitations, acquired brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, visual impairment, chronic diseases, anxiety disorder and depression just to name a few.

Professional Organisers are experienced at creating a safe, functional and calm space in which to meet client goals within their home so they can experience the independence and freedom that comes from simplicity and organisation. 

Helping to transform peoples’ lives is what makes us jump out of bed in the mornings!

Client Praise

You've worked your magic!

I had accumulated over 30 years' worth of goods and furniture and was downsizing to a 2-bedroon unit. The prospect was daunting when you consider that I am in my 80s and my wife is in her late 70s. However, I needn't have worried at all. The team were understanding, efficient, professional and reassuring. Their communication was proactive, regular and responsive and they kept their promises completely.
The whole job was done to our complete satisfaction. We are so glad that we found these people and decided to use them - it was worth every penny.

Living Room

Our Decluttering Process

1. Goals

We work with you to achieve your plan goals through decluttering and organising your home, routines, habits and spaces.

2. Declutter

We work alongside you to sort through your space/ area and support you to declutter items which you no longer need or are no longer serving you. We use our 5 step decluttering process and equip you for lasting change.

3. Organise

We coach and work with you to create homes for your items and systems that work for your unique situation. We equip you to maintain your decluttered space, set up habits to develop and increase daily living skills.

4. Support

We provide ongoing support as needed to refine and implement systems, processes and routines to help you maintain the room/ spaces we’ve decluttered and organised.

When you book a session with us, we’re with you every step of the way with:

  • Practical hands-on assistance
  • Encouragement, guidance and motivation
  • A shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with, your own personal cheer squad
  • Training in establishing routines, systems and processes
  • We can take your donations to charity for you (whatever will fit in our car)

Everyone and every home is unique, so as much as we would love to tell you in advance exactly how much of your house/ space we will be able to declutter and organise in each session, much of that is dependant on you. The amount of ‘stuff’ people have is different as well as the pace you're comfortable working. It also depends on your goals for the session; Are we helping you declutter so you're safe to continue living independently? Are we helping you decide what is coming with you to your next home? Are we helping you sort through a lifetime of possessions and memories so you can keep and honour what you love? Or are we helping you declutter after the passing of a loved one?
Generally, in our experience, it takes 1-2 sessions to declutter and organise one room/ space. This might be your pantry or kitchen or wardrobe or master bedroom.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a My Aged Care package, how would I benefit from decluttering services?

We find most older adults would benefit from our decluttering services and support whether it be one session or a series of sessions to help in your home.

Clutter has physical, emotional and psychological impacts on health and wellbeing and affects everyone in different ways. 

 If you need help with:

  • Decluttering and organising your home and space
  • Making your home safer and more functional
  • Setting up systems and processes to help your home run more smoothly
  • Creating a calm and relaxing space where you can live independently

Then you would benefit from our support. 

We can assist you with decluttering and organising as well as help set up processes and systems to help your home run more smoothly. We also help develop daily living and life skills as well as build independence in alignment with your needs and requirements.

Do you have experience working with older adults?

Yes! We have been working with older adults both privately and through My Aged Care for nearly 10 years. Our team are experienced professional organisers, and support older adults who have physical limitations, acquired brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, visual impairment, chronic diseases, anxiety disorder and depression just to name a few. We are passionate about helping older adults gain freedom from clutter so they can safely enjoy their home.

What does a session look like?

We are a hands-on service. We come alongside you in a really practical way that a psychologist, physiotherapist or OT isn’t going to be able to do in a 4 hour hands-on session. We come in and physically do the work with you and others that you live with. 

After an introduction and quick tour of the space to be worked on, we talk to you about your goal and vision for the space. During this time we ask how you want the room to function; what you want to be able to do with the space, how you would like it to look and feel and then we start the decluttering process. 

We work with you and coach you in decision making about what needs to leave the house as rubbish or donations and what is staying in the house. We then help organise the space and set up systems to keep things easy to access, clutter free and organised.

Do I need to do the work with you?

We take your capacity into consideration in all sessions. It’s totally fine if you need to sit the whole time, rest, take a break or lie down during the session. It is important that you are present within the home and available to make decisions with us as we never make decisions on your behalf about what is to stay and what is to be removed from your space. We are also there to help and coach you through any difficult decisions. 

We will be there to do all the lifting, carrying, organising and physical work and are confident in helping clients with both physical limitations, including fatigue. 

We do not require additional support workers to be in attendance during sessions, but welcome whatever support people you might need to feel confident and comfortable during our sessions.

How does invoicing work?

Invoices are sent upon completion of each session with 7 days terms of payment. Tolls, donation drop off and any travel expenses will be itemised on your invoice. For most clients, the invoice is sent directly to your My Aged Care provider and they manage the payment of the invoice for you from your package.

How do you invoice for tolls and travel?

The first 30 minutes of team travel each way is included in all service packages. Any additional travel time after the first 30 minutes will be billed accordingly at our hourly rate. Non labour costs (vehicle expenses) are invoiced at $0.97 per km after the 30 minutes of included travel.

Any tolls and cost of parking incurred in providing services are also outlined in your service agreement.

What happens to the rubbish at the end of a session?

For most sessions, the quantity of rubbish can fit in your household/ council bins. If additional rubbish removal is required we can recommend some rubbish removal companies for you to engage separately.

What about donations being taken to charity?

For sessions where there are donations to be taken to charity, clients will have this service included in their invoice, capped at 15 minutes.

We will take whatever donations to charity that we can fit in our car so you don’t have to look at it or deal with it later. If you have more donations than we can fit in our car, we can help you book a donation pick up or help you pack your car if you are able to do a donation drop off yourself. TAOD will only remove items from a client’s home with consent.

What happens if I am not up to having the session when you arrive?

Our team is really gentle and understanding and able to handle whatever state you’re in when you open the door.

Our team is very experienced in gauging situations and reading the room. Sometimes when you open the door you might feel exhausted and anxious so rather than racing into working straight away, we want you to feel comfortable. We are there to serve you so if you need 10 mins at the start of a session to have a cup of tea etc then that’s totally fine with us. 

Sometimes we do have the case when we turn up and someone says “I’m not up to it today.” In these situations, we have a few strategies that we use. Rather than say ok and walk away, and charge the full cancellation fee, we will ask you if you could do just 10 minutes together. Or are there any items we could take as donations? Are there some easy wins we could do?

We will often provide alternatives, maybe offering a shorter session. We might say, “What if we just try for half an hour/half a session?” because once we start together, more often than not clients will start to engage and say “Let’s keep going, I’m feeling good now.” But we never push; there is always freedom. So if we turn up and someone truly can’t do the session, we fully acknowledge that and it’s accounted for in our cancellation policy and service agreement.

What is your cancellation policy?

Any cancellations made with less than 2 business days incurs a full cancellation fee.

For example: if you have a session booked for a Thursday, as long as you let us know before the session time on Tuesday (say 10am), there is no cancellation fee at all. However, if there is anything less than two business days, the full cancellation fee is invoiced.
