Sandy decided to leave a comfortable condominium where she had lived for the past 30 years. She was moving to a nearby senior community — no stairs to climb, available meals when she didn’t want to cook, and new activities and friends. But even with family support, Sandy was overwhelmed by the downsizing and moving process. Although she was an organized person, she still had more belongings than she could move, including a spinet organ that needed a new home. In consultation with her family, Sandy hired A Bridge Forward to help her through this complex life transition. The Bridge Forward team created a plan and schedule, worked with her to sort and downsize belongings, scheduled the movers, packed, managed the day-of-move logistics, and unpacked. The team handled taking items to consignment and donation sites. We also coordinated pick-up of the organ, a sofa and a treadmill. On move-in day, church acquaintances and apartment neighbors stopped by to welcome Sandy to her new home. Here’s what Sandy said: “When I made the decision to move from my home of over 30 years to a senior community, I was overwhelmed as to how to proceed. I contacted A Bridge Forward for help. The Bridge Forward team was able to guide me regarding downsizing decisions all the while taking into consideration my feelings. Also, they were valuable in helping with packing and unpacking which made my move go smoothly. I could not have done it without them.” Extra help from experienced senior move managers can go a long way in easing the stress.
