Lisa Weigand opened Senior Transitioning Solutions following the 2018 move of her 84 year old Mother Eileen. Lisa’s father, Jack, passed away in 2016 and her Mom was left with the “family farm” and 60 years worth of treasured furniture, crystal, dishes, pictures, clothing, rugs, a grand piano, etc… Plus an attic, basement, garage and barn filled with multiple miscellaneous items. Helping her Mom develop an overall plan for all of these items was the first step of many and after 2 months of sorting, selling, donating and finally moving, Eileen is happy in her much smaller townhome in Doylestown.
Lisa is a professional Senior Move Manager. She has significant expertise in local resources and approaches that save money and reduce stress by partnering with Central and Upper Bucks third party entities such as senior centers, realtors, movers, auction houses, donation centers and disposal companies.
Senior Transitioning Solutions follows a code of Ethics and Standards of Practice developed by the National Association of Senior Move Managers. Senior Transitioning Solutions is fully licensed and insured.
Why is hiring Senior Transitioning Solutions and a Senior Move Manager needed now and not twenty years ago?
The numbers tell the story. The U.S. population aged 65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent when the Baby Boom generation retires (from 2010 to 2030). By 2030, the elderly will account for one-fifth of the total U.S. population. Ameri-cans age 85 and above comprise the fastest growing segment of the U.S. popu-lation.
Today, many families are geographically dispersed and adult children are often not able to help with the moving process due to distance, career and family obligations. For family members living far away, the barriers may be geographic.
Some seniors have no surviving children, or increasingly, their children are older adults themselves. If illness or death precipitates the move, the family is likely already drained both emotionally and physically. They need help. Senior Move Managers® emerged to fill these gaps and to facilitate the transition for every-one involved.
Older adults making a transition have usually not moved in 30, 40 or 50 years and need to downsize considerably. The organizational and physical tasks associated with planning and implementing such a complex move can be over-whelming for the entire family. Seek the help of experienced, insured professionals and call Lisa at Senior Transitioning Solutions a Certified Senior Move Manager®.
