We searched for the right assisted living facility and found the best one in Los Angeles, but It took a string of years for our elderly parents to make a move. Moving a senior loved one was not easy. Our senior mother recently decided to move from her Oregon home of 35 years to be closer to her children in Los Angeles. It was hard for her to leave the place she once shared with her now-deceased husband for a new state; new home and new friends.
The Senior Living Blog, written by Jeff Anderson, says, “Moving a senior loved one across the country into a new home, or moving both parents into a senior community, can be challenging. Many scenarios require moving a senior loved one from their own home. Their adult children will want to ensure the transition goes smoothly, tending to their health, finances, and logistics.”
There are many reasons for seniors to consider moving; retirement, warmer climates, changes in lifestyle, and health are just a few. Some seniors decide they want to move closer to family members or that they want to move into a smaller home, one that is easier to keep and maintain. Deciding on moving is often the most difficult step in the moving process.
Chris Hawkins at SeniorLiving.org writes, “Moving a senior loved one is overwhelming financially and emotionally, especially for seniors who may be moving for the first time in years. It may be the final move and maybe their final time. The logistics, the money, and the feelings brought out in a move are challenging and stressful.
It is also stressful for the children. They may have to ship the furniture for the smaller new house or senior care facility and sell off assets, including the house. Sometimes the house needs upgrading or rehabbing before selling the house. With families scattered, how do you take care of the logistics of moving a senior loved one into a senior care facility? Many are now looking to senior move managers.
The field of senior move managers is exploding. Eight years ago, the National Association of Senior Move managers had 60 members nationwide. Today, worldwide, they have 1,000 members. Seniors make up 12% of the population, and by 2050 experts estimate the percentage at 19%.
The senior move managers offer a personalized approach to ensuring a successful and pleasant transition into your new home. That includes:
