So what exactly is Senior Move Management? Well it’s not as simple as most believe. It’s a profession that assists older adults and their families with the physical moving of personal belongings. But, perhaps an even more challenging aspect of the profession is the understanding of the emotional toll that moves take on the family including not only the aging client but so too their loved ones. Add to the mix that some of the family members may live remotely and it’s easy to see the importance of having a trusted, empathetic, and organized Senior Move Management Team. Know too that Senior Move Management is not just restricted to the actual "move"; a huge part of preparedness is helping the client see early on the importance and relevance of downsizing and decluttering. All cogs make the wheels go round, metaphorically and literally!
Be sure to ask your moving team if they have experience with Senior moves. Are their employees vetted and trained in the subtle nuances of the industry and last but certainly not least is there a natural and genuine camaraderie between the moving team and the family?
