Moving, a pain for people of any age, can turn terrifying for seniors.
It may be the first time they’ve moved without a spouse, or the first time they weren’t able to lift boxes, or the first time they’ve gone from a larger to a smaller home.
“They just get paralyzed at this process,” said Adele Mahan, founder of Fresh Start Transitions, known as a senior move management company, that is, one offering aid to older adults in the process of a move. Fresh Start Transitions operates in Union County, Charlotte and Matthews.
Senior move managers like Mahan recognize the emotional and physical difficulty for their clients to shift from one place to another. When it comes to moving, their clients need more than just someone to do the heavy lifting. Patience, understanding and compassion go a long way.
