Senior move management is a new industry that has sprung up to meet the needs of an aging population. The baby boomers are getting older, and there are more and more seniors who need or want to move. So why might you need to hire a transition specialist?
- For most of peoples’ lives they move into bigger homes and buy more things. 'Right-sizing'—moving into a home that is manageable for you—can be emotionally trying. This is especially true if the reason for the move is the loss of a spouse, restrictions on mobility, or other health needs. A transition specialist is an expert in right-sizing, and can handle all the details.
- For adult children of seniors, hiring a transition specialist allows them to be there for the parent emotionally. Helping your parent sort through the finer details of their life is an emotional task. You may not agree with your parent about what should be thrown away, and what should be kept. The experts can help provide clear information about safety concerns, and space availability. What was complicated can become simple when the right solutions are available.
- Senior move management can save you time and money. Your time is money. Handling all the details of a parent's move and sale of property involves a lot of work and many different service providers. This takes time. Travelling to your parent's home takes more time and more money, especially if you need to make more than one trip. Transition specialists can arrange all the details.
- You are still in control. Your transition specialist can set up a plan for your needs but nothing gets done without your approval. If you want a different moving company or contractor, you can make that decision. If you have special requests, your transition specialist can make them happen.
Whether you are a senior, the child of a senior, or just a busy person who needs to move, a transition specialist can help you make a smooth transition.
