QuoteMoving is an extremely stressful process, ranking right up there with the loss of a spouse or a loved one. Many seniors are especially affected, as they consider moving from their larger homes after the loss of their mate or because of physical limitations. Grief alone affects our ability to function as efficiently as we did, prior to the loss.

 

When we add that to the aging process and overwhelm with the sheer volume of "stuff" in our homes, we often experience paralysis and the inability to make decisions. Many times people refuse to act, even if this is a move they want to make to improve the quality of their lives. (For information on types of senior living options, see Adult Living Facility Options).

 

Professional organizers who have experience with seniors can be of enormous assistance at times such as these. Some clients prefer to have the professional organizer orchestrate all aspects of the move, while others prefer to participate in a more interactive role. Communication and flexibility are essential elements in a successful move. Understanding that moving can be an emotionally charged event, everything possible is done to reduce stress, and make this an enjoyable experience.

 

Utilizing the NAPO concept of "Together, We Are Better," Jeanne will often use teams of professional organizers to facilitate a smooth transition, especially if time is a factor. However, she acts as team leader, supervises the entire process, and thus takes personal responsibility for the success of the project.
