Just Like Home Again

We have used the services of Paula and her team on several occasions over the last few years to assist elderly family members with moves.  Each time, after communicating any specific wishes of the individuals involved, we were able to leave the details of the move to Paula.  She and her team:

  • assessed floor space of new dwellings and made recommendations as to furniture placement (floor plan),
  • made all necessary arrangements for movers,
  • supervised the move on moving day,
  • placed furniture, pictures and other belongings in the new accommodation,
  • identified articles suitable for consignment and transferred them to the appropriate outlet, and made arrangements with local charities to take whatever was left over.

We found that Paula had a good working relationship with the assisted living facilities in question and was able to match moves to limited elevator availability.

Sometimes it is not easy to deal with elderly seniors and their families about moves that often have an emotional impact.  We found, without fail, that Paula and her team exercised tact and compassion, doing whatever they could to smooth the way.  I recall one instance, in particular, when my father’s face lit up as he walked through the door of the new assisted living suite and found how well they had done their job.  It was just like home again.

We remain grateful for all their assistance.
