A story about our friend and client Mary who needed a full service Senior Move Company…
Mary developed Alzheimer’s disease and needed to relocate to a memory care facility in Sarasota. With the passing of her husband last year, Mary didn’t have family in the Sarasota area to help with her care and relocation. Mary was assisted by a Certified Senior Advisor at her home to discuss options of care for Mary. Mary’s eldest daughter, with the help of the Certified Senior Advisor, was able to determine the best place for Mary to relocate to with a Memory Care Unit at a nice assisted living center. Not being able to travel to Sarasota to help with the relocation, Mary’s daughter contacted Downsizeology in Lakewood Ranch to help with the Senior Move Management for Mary.
Downsizeology handled everything from taking photos of Mary’s residence beforehand, along with all art and decorative items in her room to preserve the setup of how she lived. Downsizeology professionally packed all of Mary’s belongings and managed her relocation to the Memory Care Unit. The next day, Mary while eating her breakfast and preparing for her day with her caregivers, didn’t lift a finger to transport any of her belongings from her previous home. Once finished with breakfast, Mary returned to her room to find all of her belongings neatly put away, her art and photographs hung in the same decorative way as they were before and it was a very calming feeling for Mary. Now Mary with her belongings all put away, sorted, electronics connected and working, bed made and clothing hung, was able to settle in to her new home and continue living her life without much disruption at all. Mary’s eldest daughter was so grateful we could handle the entire move and settle her mother in too!
Next, we went a step further and were able to work with Mary’s daughter by phone to downsize the rest of her lifelong home. Items were shipped to the family, items were consigned, items were donated and Downsizeology even purchased some of the items to clean the home and ready it for the market! All items were removed from the home and it was deep cleaned to ready the home for sale. The home sold within 3 weeks and the family was extremely pleased. This is what Downsizeology can do for you!
