Move Services for Seniors


A move to a new home always begins with a decision. Sometimes the decision is pro-active and sometimes the decision is made because of a health concern, but there is a moment in time when a senior recognizes that he or she must leave their current home for somewhere new.

For senior adults, that move nearly always involves going to a place with less square footage than they currently have. Instead of looking at it like they are “losing” something; I like to refer to it as “rightsizing.”

I offer a senior much more than help packing. I help the senior and their family to emotionally, physically, and practically manage their move. I consult with the senior’s family — whether they are local or live at a distance to ensure that the family is as involved as they need and want to be.

Pre-Move Services Include:

  • Creating a comprehensive Moving Plan
  • Organizing paperwork and moving details
  • Working with senior to make choices on what to do with possessions
  • Identify what to keep, what to give away, and what to throw away in an orderly and detailed manner
  • Help the senior emotionally with the challenges of the move
  • Customize new home floor plans
  • Arrange estate sales, donations, and removal of unwanted items
  • Prepare a photographic inventory of items stored, sold, or given away
