Shirley's January Move to a Senior Community
The new year means a new home for our client, Shirley, who will move from her 3-bedroom home to a newly remodeled apartment in a nearby senior community.
As is the case with many of our clients prior to a move, Shirley is apprehensive about the change. The Bridge Forward team, though, is working alongside her to make the move as stress free as possible.
We began the move process in December when a Bridge Forward move manager met with Shirley and her daughter to go through each room of her house and identify which pieces of furniture she would move. We then created a floor plan for the new apartment to make sure the furniture selections would work.
The next step was to contact several movers for price quotes. Because good movers book up quickly, we wanted to reserve the move date before the holidays. With our guidance, Shirley selected her mover and locked in the moving date.
Even though she would move in mid January, Shirley and her daughter were able to relax over the holidays knowing that the Bridge Forward moving team had a schedule in place to ensure the work would get done on time.
The first week in January, the Bridge Forward team spent three afternoons with Shirley going through each room in the house to determine which items she would move and which would be donated to friends, family or charitable organizations. All items to be donated were packed up and delivered to their new homes.
With COVID-19 safety protocols in place, We packed and successfully moved Shirley the second week of the month.
Even with strong family support, Shirley and her daughter realized they needed extra sets of hands to accomplish the move. Downsizing, in particular, is an emotional process and an objective, third party often helps a family accomplish this challenging task.
If you or a family member is considering a move this year, A Bridge Forward offers free consultations and price quotes based on your specific needs. We are bonded, insured and a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers.
