Have you wondered how to help your beloved family members as they downsize and move into a home with less space? Senior move managers may be your answer. Most of us struggle to figure out what to keep when we are moving, and that dilemma catches us even when we are moving to a house the same size or larger than the one we are leaving. Imagine how much more difficult those decisions are when someone is moving to someplace significantly smaller than what they are used to. Imagine the decisions when you have 50 or more years of memories wrapped up in the keepsakes, clothing, photos, and furniture you are leaving. Most of us find that task overwhelming.
A Senior Move Managers Job
Senior move managers are people who are trained at helping people find what they truly need and figure out how to keep memories without keeping all the objects those memories are attached to. Senior move managers understand how to help sort belongings, how to find a strategy that works for each individual they help so that the move isn’t too traumatic and can even be cathartic.
How do they do it? Practice, training, and—like a good interior designer—natural skill. Just like figuring out how to pack for a vacation, moving is a process that requires thinking through scenarios. What will I need for this eventuality? What can I do if I need something I have given away or sold? How will I find a workaround for not having that anymore?
Our senior move managers have studied what works and what doesn’t, and they are comforting and supportive through the process of finding the right balance and disposing of what isn’t truly needed any more. Give us a call and let us chat about your options.
