Our Crowd-Pleasing March Seminar: “Taking the Overwhelm Out of Downsizing”

 “Downsizing” has become a popular buzzword in senior circles. The thought of downsizing can draw positive and/or negative reactions – freeing and energizing you to start a new chapter of life or overwhelming you at the thought of what needs to be done to accomplish the end goal. That’s why a highly motivated audience of over 50 seniors joined us on March 10 for our Seniors Living Smarter Seminar: “Taking the Overwhelm Out of Downsizing.”

Our experts included a move manager and a senior who has down­sized, exploring the many facets of the process including preparing for the move, the move itself, and the setting up afterwards. Topics included:

• Why is a downsizing move that much different than any other move?

• I can do this myself, can’t I? Or do I really need a professional?

• What does a move manager do? How can a move manager help me?
