Helping Older Adults Move

Our Move Management team specializes
in the unique downsizing needs of older adults and seniors
throughout the process of moving
into smaller residences or retirement communities.

Like an event manager or wedding planner,
we work with our clients to plan the move
and provide all assistance needed
to carry out the logistical details.

But most importantly,
we alleviate your stress –
from our initial meeting
until you are settled comfortably in your new home –
with compassion, encouragement, and care.

We support adult children
and supplement the assistance
they are able to provide to parents
during the relocation process.

We turn the overwhelmed into the overjoyed!
