How it Works

Working with a Senior Move Manager can make a later life move a more positive experience. Every client is different – we work at their pace and tackle the issues important to them, whether it is a full scale move or aging in place. We place great importance on enabling the person moving home to remain in control of their move and the decisions made. Once we have an understanding of the client’s needs we will develop a bespoke plan of support to make the move happen.

The first step begins with making the call to us.

Home Visit

Ideally we like to schedule a home visit to walk through the house and your memories with you. We will wear PPE or if you prefer we can do a zoom call. We establish what time frame we have to work within and what your needs are. We assess any physical limitations that you have. Moving decades of memories is overwhelming at times and we provide emotional support working at the clients pace.
