[grid-row][fancy-title]About Us[/fancy-title]Soft Landings, Solutions for Seniors offers specialized, compassionate move services for seniors and their families. We are a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers.

Senior Move managers have extensive, practical knowledge about the costs, quality and availability of various local community resources. We also assist individuals who choose to stay in their homes. You may simply require expert organizational skills and solid knowledge of “aging in place” concepts to help achieve your goal of not moving anywhere, but improving your quality of life.

Whether you’re a senior moving to another state to retire or to be closer to your family, or you’re looking to downsize with a local move, Soft Landings can assist you with every aspect of the move. Soft Landings is currently licensed in Oregon, insured and bonded.

If you need help with your elderly parents, we can assist you every step of the way no matter where you live. We want the transition for the entire family to be as stress-free as possible.

We handle the details without the emotional and physical distress that can follow. Which in turn, can avoid costly mistakes and remorse that often accompany life changes.
