What makes a Senior Move Manager® different from just a moving company?
Senior Move Managers provide a multi-faceted approach to the move process: from space planning in the beginning to post-move support and advocacy.
Senior Move Managers minimize the chaos and stress associated with moving by addressing all aspects of the move process. They are responsible for creating and executing a seamless action plan customized to the client's wishes.
Actually, some but not all Senior Move Managers are also movers. Those providers that are not movers will work closely with a reputable local moving company to complete that aspect of the job.
With the gentle and expert guidance of an experienced Senior Move Manager, older adults and families make the key decisions without the emotional and physical distress that can follow. As a result, they avoid the costly mistakes and remorse that often accompany such major lifestyle transitions.
I live in Michigan and my Mom, who is moving, lives in Connecticut. Can your service help me with the details of my Mom's move?
Often family members live at a distance. This can be especially difficult. We will work directly with you to arrange all the details, work with you and your Mom as a team, or whatever arrangement works best for both of you.
My Dad is very anxious about moving from his home into an assisted living apartment. He worries about every detail, and that movers might lose an important memento.
Our commitment is not only the many details of the moving process, but also to allay the anxiety that is a natural consequence of such a major life transition. We keep in touch with your Dad on a regular, if not daily, basis. We will work directly with him and KEEP HIM updated each step of the way. We will oversee the movers.
I am moving to an Independent Living Facility. Can you help me find a mover and help me organize my new living space?
Absolutely. We will oversee the packing, unpacking and help you set up your new home.
I am interested in obtaining some help with my mom's move, but we can do most of the work to save money. Can I still contact a Senior Move Manager® to do just some of the work?
Yes, most Senior Move Managers® offer a menu of services from which you can choose and you pay accordingly. The ultimate goal of this industry is to ease the stress of the move process for older adults and family members, not add to your concerns.
