How to Get a Move On
Downsizing and relocating can be a difficult task at any age. But it can be even more daunting for senior citizens who have a lifetime of accumulations to sort through or special needs and health concerns to keep in mind when searching for a new home and community. Yet another challenge facing is lack of help from family members. Some may have no children, while others have children living in far-flung locations who are unable to be of significant assistance. These types of considerations have given rise to a cottage industry of movers and personal assistants focused specifically on helping seniors. Here's a closer look at some of the companies around the country that specialize in senior downsizing and relocations as well as important questions and considerations to keep in mind before hiring a professional to assist with a senior move.
