What is a Senior Move Manager?

Senior Move Managers are professionals who assist older adults and/or their families with life transitions from Aging-In-Place to relocating to a different living situation. In addition, when an older adult passes away, the Senior Move Manager may assist families in disposing of their loved one’s belongings. SMM’s often have a background in the health field or the business world where they gained experience in project management. They may have experience in psychology and sociology and even in real estate or any number of related fields. Whatever their background, the SMM’s primary goal is to help older adults become aware of the choices available to them and to guide them in making the best decisions possible for them and their families.
