Downsizing Made Easy

WHAT IS YOUR VISION?   

CONSULTATION: As a former geriatric social worker, I am skilled at working with older adults as they transition into different phases of life. During our in-home consultation, I sensitively help your loved one survey which of their possessions are most meaningful and which they’re ready to let go. It takes time to ponder and embrace these decisions. During our time together, I offer ideas, solutions, and answer questions that will alleviate any stress and concerns about the anticipated changes ahead. 

WHAT DO OR DON'T YOU NEED?  

DESIGN: Once decisions are made as to which furnishings remain, I take photographs and measurements and plan a visit to the new home to ensure furnishings will fit comfortably in the space.  I proceed to create a beautifully designed home to accommodate your loved one’s new lifestyle.  I select new furniture and accessories harmoniously complementing the current furnishings while making sure to maintain a sense of familiarity. Details and web links of new furnishings are provided for you to purchase directly. A functional floor plan with placement of furniture that allows for ease of mobility and comfort is created to simplify relocation.

HOW DOES IT GET DONE?

TRANSITION: Help is available for sorting, purging, and moving through various reliable trusted sources such as professional organizers, moving companies, storage and donation facilities, consignment dealers, and estate sales companies. You’re encouraged to contract with vendors on your own.  If your schedule does not allow you to supervise these activities, I can meet with vendors and help manage every detail

Let’s chat on the phone where we can learn about your needs and better understand how best to serve you. We offer a variety of  service packages to suit your specific needs.
