Senior Move Management

You may be asking yourself… What is a Senior Move Manager and why would I need one?

A Senior Move Manager is a professional who specializes in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/or aging in place. Senior move managers provide a multi-faceted approach to the move process: from space planning in the beginning to post-move support and advocacy. Though many senior move managers have different backgrounds they all share, however, a profound commitment to connecting with older adults and a desire to perform meaningful work. We all want to help you plan, organize and execute your move from one home to the next, minimizing the stress and difficulties that come with it. New Vision Home Services provides the services that you and your family need for a seamless, successful transition of any kind. 

Most of our senior moving clientele consists of the following types of people: 

  • The elderly
  • Family members of the elderly
  • Bank and trust officers
  • In Home Care Managers
  • Attorneys
  • Social service providers/social workers
  • Senior living communities
  • Realtors

So why are we needed?

The US population aged 65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent when the Baby Boom generation retires (from 2010 to 2030). By 2030, the elderly will account for one-fifth of the total US population. Americans age 85 and above comprise the fastest growing segment of the US population. Senior move services are needed now for a variety of reasons:

  • Today, many families are geographically dispersed and adult children are often not able to help with the moving process due to distance, career and family obligations. For family members living far away, the barriers may be geographic.
  • Many seniors have no surviving children, or increasingly, their children are older adults themselves. If an illness or death of a loved one precipitates the move, the family is likely already drained both emotionally and physically. They need help. Senior move management has emerged to fill these gaps and to facilitate the transition for everyone involved.
  • Older adults making a transition have usually not moved in 30, 40 or 50 years and need to downsize considerably. The organizational and physical tasks associated with planning and implementing such a complex move can be overwhelming for the entire family. Seek the help of experienced, insured professionals and call a senior move manager.

What makes us different than normal moving companies?

New Vision minimizes the chaos and stress associated with moving by addressing all aspects of the move process. We are responsible for creating and executing a seamless action plan, customized to the client’s wishes:

  • Some but not all senior move managers are also movers and have the ability to move across the county. New Vision does not have that ability to the moment however we will work closely with a reputable cross country moving company to complete that aspect of the job.
  • With the gentle and expert guidance of New Vision Home Services, older adults and families can make the key decisions without the emotional and physical distress that can follow. As a result, they avoid the costly mistakes and remorse that often accompany such major lifestyle transitions.
  • New Vision Home Services can do so much more than simply sort, settle and move boxes; we can take the worry (and work!) out of the move process. The client’s job is to simply enjoy his or her new living arrangement.
