With the aging population in America growing at steady rates—by 2030 the elderly will account for 20% of the U.S. population—the demand for Senior Move Managers continues to grow. Families increasingly find themselves geographically dispersed, making it challenging to care for their older loved ones. Additionally, many older adults find themselves with no surviving children or their Baby Boomer adult children may be senior citizens themselves. Growing old can be quite an adventure that many are unprepared for, but help is available in making this life transition.
Senior Move Managers may be able to guide older adults and their families through life-change processes, drawing on their extensive knowledge and experience of navigating the issues related to aging. SMM’s who are members of the National Association of Move Managers have been vetted and have completed extensive training related to Seniors. Their services are typically varied and offered as a menu of options, allowing clients to choose the SMM offerings that best fit their needs. NASMM members follow a specific Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, as well.
NASMM (www.nasmm.org/) offers a network of Move Managers across the U.S. so, no matter where you are located, you may take advantage of the services SMM’s offer. Also, you may obtain referrals from other professionals such as: Bank & trust officers, Financial Planners, Geriatric Care Managers, Elder Law Attorneys, Social Workers, Senior living communities, your Health Care Provider, & Realtors.
Most Senior Move Managers will do an assessment and estimate of the time your job will entail, often at no charge. Transition Tamers would welcome the opportunity to assist you with your transition in the Charlotte or Lake Norman, North Carolina areas; or we can refer you to other professional move managers at a location near you.
