Certifited Move Manager
What is a Certified Move Manager, what do we do and why do we differ from a traditional moving company?
The traditional way of moving often does not work for later life moves. There are many factors that will affect the move and can have a huge impact on not only the person moving but also on family members.
A Certified Senior Move Manager will:
- Meet with the family and their loved one who is moving.
- Work with floor plans.
- Assist you with the "Whole Transition".
- Take into account your emotions, memories and family dynamics.
- Provide you with a single point of contact throughout the move treating you like family.
- Take the right amount of furniture to make your new home safe and free from clutter.
- Not randomly dispose of items without first asking your children if they want these items because they represent cherished childhood memories.
- Touch and handle the disposition of all the other items you are not taking.
- Ensure that expired medicines or jars of salad dressing that are ten years out of date will not be moved because they would be a danger to you.
- Help you to understand that the glass coffee table with sharp edges may not be a good idea to move as you have already fallen three times and you have macular degeneration and the clear glass is not easily seen.
- Not pack the bathroom mat as it has no backing and could make you fall.
- Hire the mover to transport your items on moving day.
- Hang shelves for your mementoes because your wall unit would not fit and you needed somewhere to display your family photos.
- Make sure you are all unpacked, everything is in its place and all set up by suppertime on move-in day.
- Complete a post move follow-up to make sure you are happy.
- Make sure you have settled into your new home.
- Work with you regarding the total picture and the total person and your family.
