The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning
From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:
Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning is a book intended to guide persons in later life in organizing and de-cluttering household goods and records to leave an orderly home for survivors.
From the website: "In Sweden there is a kind of decluttering called döstädning, dö meaning “death” and städning meaning “cleaning.” This surprising and invigorating process of clearing out unnecessary belongings can be undertaken at any age or life stage but should be done sooner than later, before others have to do it for you. In The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, artist Margareta Magnusson, with Scandinavian humor and wisdom, instructs readers to embrace minimalism. Her radical and joyous method for putting things in order helps families broach sensitive conversations, and makes the process uplifting rather than overwhelming."

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database
This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".
The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".
We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about.
Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.
Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
