Why choose a Senior Move Manager?

Moving to a new home is stressful for anyone. More so, senior moves, for an older adult with a lifetime of memories, treasures and history. When you have a professional Senior Move Manager work on your behalf, your move (or that of a loved one) will be so much easier.

As NASMM certified move managers, we help assure the quality, ease and comfort of our moving service clients. We strictly adhere to the NASMM standards to maintain our accreditation. We’ve also signed and adhere to the NASMM code of ethics, which include:

  • Advocacy and Loyalty to the Client
  • Promoting Self Determination
  • Right to Privacy
  • Avoiding Conflict of Interest
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Continuing Education

The NASMM started in the 1990’s to help older adults reduce the size of their homes, by providing services that make it easier to downsize from larger, family homes. This could include moving to an apartment, condo, smaller traditional home or even moving in with family members.

Making moves easier

In order to make your move as smooth as possible, many Senior Move Managers will work with local, trusted moving companies or other professionals in our local area. We do this to ensure you are getting the absolute best service and attention!

Full-service Senior Move Managers

We are here to help the moving process be easier, not only for older adults, but also for the families that care for them. We have the training and experience to provide not only the physical act of moving, but to also be there as emotional support to seniors and their families.

How to get started

We suggest working with us a few weeks, if not months, prior to your move. We will help you make those decisions about what stays and what goes, what can be auctioned, donated, and shipped, or what should be gifted or discarded when you move. We work efficiently, quickly, and comprehensively. We understand that senior moves are personal, and we strive to maintain our clients’ dignity and autonomy.

By starting early, you can avoid a documented condition called Relocation Stress Syndrome or Transition Trauma. (Read more about Relocation Stress Syndrome at Elder Care ABC Blog.)
