So You’re Movin On

Leaving the family home for a smaller residence can be especially difficult for seniors and their families.

You have a lifetime of memories stored in the basement or in grown children’s rooms. You need someone who will act with kindness and sensitivity to see that your possessions are handled distributed properly. Putting this burden solely on family members who are often very busy with their jobs and raising their own children can put an unnecessary strain on everyone’s lives and damage relationships at a time when you need...
