Over the years we’ve helped many seniors and their families transition from the family home to their next choice of living accommodations. We understand how important and unique each situation is, how stressful and emotional it can be, and how we can help make this life changing move compassionate, comfortable, and caring.
Start the conversation early – communication is vital. The thought of leaving the family home can be overwhelming and raise lots of questions for seniors: How do we even start? What is the first step? Can we financially do this? What about all the personal belongings? The items to leave behind? Will the adult children be involved? Who can I trust? Who can help?
