Facing a loss of autonomy at any age is challenging. It is my strong belief that if we pay attention to the language used when a senior faces a loss of autonomy it can change the next step in life from being negative to being more positive, when relocating is considered. For some reason the term is to ‘place a senior’ or ‘put my Mom’ in a retirement residence.

Families often tell me “She/he is soooooo stubborn.” But aren’t we all? We each have our own likes and dislikes, our own certain way of doing things, and our own personality with our own internal narrator.”

My grandmother, my mother in-law and father in-law have all been down this road recently. All three situations were different and conversations varied. But ultimately dignity, respect and good communication was clearly the way to positive responses.

I take on this opportunity with pride and complete respect to each unique situation that I come across.

My service to you would consist of start to finish, estate sale, organizing cleaning and prep work to get Mom and or  Dads home ready for sale.

If your are not in town we can do most organizing via phone or if you just need an evaluation and want to speak to someone that has been in the industry for many years.
