Senior Living Advisors

When choosing the right senior living community, the options can be overwhelming and stressful to a family. A Senior Living Advisor typically offers a free service to seniors and their families. These industry experts have knowledge on all independent, assisted, memory care and skilled nursing communities in your area. Many times they are local and can meet you in person before touring communities. These advisors are commissioned a “referral fee” if they assist in helping find a new resident, much like a real estate agent gets commissioned when helping a buyer find their new home.

Relocation Consultants

After living in a home for many years, moving to a smaller apartment, retirement center or assisted living community can be a difficult process.  Often the move is necessary because of a health crisis, and that can make it seem more overwhelming.

Relocation Consultants can help you decide on and coordinate options that will be the right fit for you.

Some tips on deciding what to take to your new home:

  • Get a floor plan on your new home and measure your furniture and items to see what will fit in the new space.
  • When downsizing, it is helpful to develop some sort of system to organize where items will go.  Tagging items with a mark or using different color tags could be helpful.  Forming sorting areas can also be helpful when downsizing.

If the moving and downsizing process is too overwhelming or not realistic to accomplish on your own, you will need to find outside help.  Relocation Consultants can offer assistance especially when friends and family are not available.
