What is a Senior Move Manager?

A Senior Move Manager is a professional who specializes in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation. Many Senior Move Managers have backgrounds in gerontology, social work, health care, nursing and psychology. All share a commitment to working with seniors and a desire to do meaningful work. Although specific services vary, most Senior Move Managers can help with some or all of the following:

Some Senior Move Managers provide these services directly; others function in more of an oversight role. Senior Move Managers have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality and availability of community resources.

Why is Senior Move Management needed?

Most older adults making a transition have 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 move can be overwhelming.

Family and friends often want to help, but there may be barriers. Adult children may be sandwiched between their parents, their careers and their own family obligations. For family members living far away, the barriers may be geographic. Some seniors have no surviving children, or their children are seniors themselves.
