Senior Move Managers are Worth Celebrating

May 08, 2018

We are excited to join the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) in celebrating National Senior Move Managers Week. NASMM has declared May 13-19, 2018 National Senior Move Managers Week. During this recognition week, NASMM and NASMM members around the US, Canada, Europe, 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.

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, “Passion + Purpose,” underscores the dedication, compassion, commitment, and unique skills Senior Move Managers® offer their clients and families throughout the downsizing, relocation, or aging in place process.

“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 Theresa Giddings, Founder, Soft Landings, Solutions for Seniors. “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 to reducing the stress that can accompany this type of move and that’s exactly what we do!”

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.
