A senior move manager is a professional who specializes in helping seniors and their families manage the physical and emotional aspects of relocating to a new home. They provide a wide range of services to make the move as smooth and stress-free as possible for seniors and their families. Move managers and their teams will provide assistance throughout the entire moving process, from the initial planning stages to settling down. Here are some ways in which move managers can help you or a senior loved one during the relocation process.

Ensuring a Smooth Moving Process

Senior move managers make relocating to a senior living facility easier by helping seniors and their families plan every step of the moving process. They can provide guidance on selecting a reputable moving company, help seniors determine which belongings to keep and which ones to discard, and assist with packing and organizing belongings. They also provide assistance with paperwork, such as completing the change of address forms, canceling utilities, and transferring medical records.

Developing a Timeline and Floor Plan

The senior move manager will help you create a timeline for the move, including when to begin packing, when to contact movers, and when to begin the move itself. The timeline should also include any special arrangements for elderly care, such as respite care or medical appointments.

Once the timeline has been established, the senior move manager will then create a floor plan for the new residence. This plan should include the layout of the furniture and the placement of any necessary medical equipment. It should also include any special considerations that need to be made for the senior resident, such as wheelchair accessibility or special lighting.

Finally, the senior move manager will coordinate with the movers to ensure that the move proceeds smoothly and that your senior loved one is comfortable and safe during the transition. The senior move manager can also provide advice and support to the elderly individual and their family throughout the process.

Helping You Make Decisions about Belongings

When relocating, it is important to identify and prioritize belongings and possessions that you want to keep and those that may be donated or sold. A senior move manager can help seniors make decisions about what can fit into their new residence and identify items that may be too large or difficult to transport or that they simply have no need for in the new space. They also help plan how to divide belongings among family members and how to donate or sell items of sentimental or financial value.

Unpacking and Settling In

When it comes to unpacking and settling, hiring a senior move manager can prove very helpful. They can help with unpacking boxes, sorting through belongings, and arranging furniture and other items. They can also provide you with advice on the best ways to maximize space and make the new home feel comfortable and inviting. In addition, they can provide guidance on the best ways to organize and store items, as well as tips on how to create a safe and senior-friendly living environment.

From downsizing and organizing the home selling process to relocation and unpacking services, a move manager can help you or your loved one manage all the details involved with relocating.
