For senior movers, lifting boxes easier than lifting spirits (access required)

By Caitlin Coakley 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.

As a Certified Senior Advisor and Life Coach, I know that many seniors and their families are searching for ways to make later life transitions easier. Here is an easy solution! Letting a trained Senior Move Manager assist them not only with the heavy lifting but, more importantly, with the delicate control issues can make all the difference – between a successful move or a stress-filled family battle over contents and control. – Coach Betty
