On-site community assistance
If you’re in the process of selling your existing home, ask your real-estate agent if they have any contacts with move managers who could step in to assist with downsizing and other logistics of your move post-sale.
You might also look to an organization like the National Association of Senior Move Managers, which offers a searchable database of vetted professionals that can assist in your move from start to finish, including disposing of unwanted items, unpacking and setting up your new home.
Beyond the tactical stress move managers can alleviate, these professionals also have the benefit of being a third party beyond your family. All their guidance comes from a practical, objective place, with your best interests at heart.
You may be able to offset the cost of a local move management company through a charitable donation during your move. Move managers can work with their clients to determine which items can be donated to families in need, resulting in a tax deduction.
Vi communities offer hands-on help to their new residents, from local recommendations for help with downsizing and preparations to on-site move-in coordination and more.
