I have had the distinct privilege of working with clients who have a vast knowledge of life and rich experiences. Getting to know Long Island elders in our community has been a blessing. They are honest and tell you what they are thinking, whether they are prompted to or not! I have heard tales of children, spouses and the challenges they have faced. It humbles me to witness their strength and courage amidst the struggle of moving from a lovely old home. It is common for our clients who have 40-60 year old children, to finally be moving out of the home where they raised their children. The emotions surrounding the move are usually more upsetting than the boxes or decisions that need to be made.
Some clients are feeling the loss of their independence as well as grieving the loss of a spouse, family member or friend, while others are fearful of the changes that the future will bring. Many of our clients are dealing with declining health, financial struggles, and legal issues in regards to selling their home as well as the cost of their new living quarters. These are some of the complexities involved in a later life move. Aging is not for the faint of heart. As a Senior Move Manager, it is my honor to serve these individuals in their time of need.
