Home Organizing, Downsizing & Moving

Seniors and their families often must “downsize” – pare down a lifetime’s worth of possessions – to make a longtime home safer or prepare to move. Seniors often need help with a housing transition; something families sometimes can’t provide, especially during a crisis.

Certified senior move managers – professional organizers with a certification in serving seniors – and certified senior relocation and transition specialists can provide compassionate, objective help during this emotionally trying period.

Services include organizing, packing/unpacking, developing floor plans, disposing of unwanted items, home staging, holding estate sales and more. They don’t handle the move, but they can help in finding a professional moving service.

For a list of professional moving companies that are not senior-certified, see Yellow Pages: Movers & Full Service Storage.

When you hire an individual or company to come onto your property or into your home, you assume a certain amount of risk, as does the person you’re hiring. See the Action Guide for a list of questions to ask when hiring an in-home service.
