Weekly Quick Tips

Overwhelmed by the Thought of Downsizing?

Are you an older adult thinking about moving from your home to a smaller apartment, condo or senior community or residence? Or are you a caring family member or friend, wondering how to help a senior move with as little stress as possible? Relax. There is help!

Many Professional Organizers are Senior Move Managers, who can take all the worry and stress away from making a transition to a new home. An initial consultation will provide you with all the information on the services available and how the Move Manager will assist you with your relocation. Here are a few things that a move management company, such as Organizing Lives, will do for you:

  • By creating a detailed floorplan of your new home, we help you decide the most appropriate pieces of furniture to bring with you.
  • As you are moving to a smaller residence, we will help you downsize your’stuff’, and decide what to keep, sell, or give away.
  • Provide you with various options for the disposal of the things you aren’t keeping, such as an antique dealer, online sales, or local charities.
  • Take care of all your moving details ~ booking elevators, arranging for a reputable mover, packing everything that is going with you and unpacking and setting everything up for you in your new home ~ at the end of moving day, you come in and everything is ready for you to start your new life in your new home!

Calling in the services of a Senior Move Manager is a great way to reduce the stress and worry from downsizing and moving, with or without family help, to a new location.
