One of the most daunting experiences in life is moving. In particular if you have been living in one location any amount of time or even down-sizing. I am constantly looking for ways to bring moments of value to my clients and I am exciting to share one of these with you today.
As the Baby Boom generation retires through 2030 it will account for about one fifth of the US population and is our fastest growing population segment.
Our mobile society has evolved by moving jobs and careers all over the world. Families used to seldom move away from their roots, but this mobility has changed everything. Children often leave the communities they grew up in to find more or better employment or seek new opportunities that were not once abundant. This leaves many seniors without the resources and family support when it comes time to move. My own personal experience with elderly parents testifies to just how much they depend on help when making a move. So, what happens when you don't have that support? Now there is an option that I am happy to share with you. It is called senior move management and I have a friend in Cheyenne that has a business in senior transition services called Sunny Solutions, LLC.
The benefits to anyone contemplating a move are numerous. First, planning ahead is always the greatest benefit in most things we do. Then you have the relief knowing someone is there to help and support you. By having the assistance to tackle 20, 30, 40 or 50 years worth of accumulation goes from mind boggling to manageable. Helping you preserve your precious memories in either photographs or other keep-sakes. Assisting you with what to keep and what to eliminate, and then do you throw it away or is there real value to either a charity or your bank account. This process done on your own can be mind numbing. Space planning is another benefit in helping you lay out the things you intend to keep or want in a new location. This also helps you decide what to keep or not. A professional move manager is not as expensive as you would think and you should not doubt the power of an outside expert. If you are moving into senior living they have the experience and understanding of the alternatives and financial resources necessary for each.
If you or someone you know are planning a move to downsize why not enjoy the peace of mind and help of an experienced professional.
Call me and I would be proud to introduce you to Mary Lewis who is a professional senior move manager and an NASMM member.
