65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent when the
Baby Boom generation retires (from 2010 to 2030).

family. Seek the help of experienced, insured
professionals and call a Senior Move Manager

How much do Senior Move Management
services cost?
• It’s virtually impossible to calculate what a specific
move might cost, as the fee can vary considerably
by geographic region and the services requested.
