During this recognition week, NASMM and NASMM members around the US, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia are promoting the value of Senior Move Management and Senior Move Managers’ commitment to assisting older adults and their families with later lifestyle transitions. 

How a Senior Move Manager Can Help

Senior Move Managers assist adults and their families with both downsizing to remain in their current home, as well as the entire process of moving to a new residence. Senior Move Managers specialize in helping their clients with the emotional and physical aspects of sorting through a lifetime of memories in the transition process, while providing them with effective options and resources to increase efficiencies and reduce stress. The theme of this year’s celebration, “A Circle of Experts,” underscores the unique skills and professionalism Senior Move Managers® offer their clients and families throughout the downsizing, relocation or aging in place process. According to Mary Kay Buysse, Executive Director of NASMM, “Senior Move Managers® have significant expertise, resources and approaches to save time, money, reduce stress and produce quality results. Services are client-centered and personalized to meet the client’s needs, providing an expertly managed, compassionate and affordable move.”

“For adults who have lived in their homes for 30 or 40 years, it’s more than just a move. Most older adults making this type of transition need to downsize considerably,” said Liz Donovan, Executive Director of Senior Support and Transition.  “The organizational and physical tasks – whether you are moving or downsizing to stay in the home – can be overwhelming. Families need a professional to provide them with the necessary tools essential reduce the stress that can accompany this type of move – and that’s exactly what we do!   If you want to stay in your own home and age safely in place, we can help you do that too.”  Senior Support and Transition assists Seniors and/or their family members who want to make sure they themselves, or their loved ones, can safely age in place – or help them to move, if they must. 

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among adults 65 and over.  Senior Support and Transition offers free Home Safety Assessments to local residents, to help them identify not only potential safety hazards, but also opportunities and improvements to make daily activities easier and to reduce the risk of falling.
