The community where she moved to employs a ‘move in coordinator’, who visited my client prior to the moving. The purpose of the visit was to make sure that the items that were being moved would fit into her new apartment. My client was moving from approximately 2000 sq ft to about 1400 sq ft. Six hundred square feet makes a big difference. However my client was told she could bring everything, and she did!
Next week, during National Senior Move Managers Week I will be promoting the value of senior move management and senior move managers’ commitment to assisting older adults and their families, not only the actual moving experience, but with the emotional and physical aspects of sorting through and downsizing a lifetime of memories in the relocation process. I have five 2 hour blocks of time to meet with a senior or their family to them develop a strategic transition plan. If you know of someone who would benefit from this session please let me know — first come first serve. There is absolutely no obligation!
