How Senior Move Management Works
Moving is nerve-wracking at any age, but it's even more difficult when you have to leave behind decades' worth of memories and possessions in your home. That's why most seniors want to age at home and avoid the hassle of moving to an elder care facility.
But, sometimes the move is inevitable, especially for seniors who require specialized care and have limited mobility. If you area bout to downsize, move in with a relative or live in an old home, you probably already know how overwhelming it can be to leave a home that's filled to the brim with chaos and paperwork.
Research moving companies, sort through the belongings, pack up the old place, find a storage place and also deal with life as usual; it can all get a bit much for someone who's already fighting the ravages of old age.
But thankfully, you can hire someone to do this legwork on your behalf.
What Is A Senior Move Manager?
Senior move managers specialize in helping the elderly transition to assisted living communities or smaller homes and apartments. They provide professional help as well as the emotional and physical assistance needed to successfully deal with the challenges of relocation.
So, any time you feel lost and unsure about what to do when downsizing and moving, they have the answers.
Here's what you can expect when working with a Senior Move Manager:
Downsize And Pack With Dignity
It can be difficult to sort through all the bits and bobs collected over the years. After all, everything holds some meaning and getting rid of the tiniest possessions can be stressful.
Your senior move manager takes stock of all that's in your home and then sits with you to sift through it all. This task requires a lot of time, energy, and effort, but they go a step further to categorize and pack everything.
You can also count on them to figure out what to sell, toss, or donate and then do it for you.
Relocating is always emotional, but the turmoil increases manifold with old age. Nobody wants to leave their home and live in a place that's utterly alien to them, especially at a time when familiarity is akin to comfort.
Senior move managers specialize in emotional management and help older adults deal with this drastic change. They also assist senior citizens in making peace with the decision to relocate and help them settle into the new place.
Assistance With New Home Setup
Senior move managers supervise movers and new home arrangements, ensuring that everything gets done on schedule, so you and your seniors don't suffer much during the transition. You can also rely on them to coordinate the services of domestic workers, painters, and maintenance pros.
Relocation is often a difficult new transition for older adults. But senior move management can make it easier for seniors to tackle the move as efficiently and quickly as possible. If you'd like to learn more about these services or hire a move manager, get in touch with us today.
