Solicitors and Financial Advisors


Solicitors and Financial Advisors are often required to find solutions for older or vulnerable clients beyond their specialist remit. Senior Services can help you and your clients with a range of property related services; for example, we can assist with a move to either independent or supported accommodation; arrange market appraisals; prepare a property for sale; oversee property clearance following bereavement or relocation into long term care.

 

As experienced and dedicated senior move managers, we can be relied on to deliver high quality, personal service with integrity, sensitivity and professionalism.

 


 

Estate Agents


Many older people would like to move to a more manageable home, but find the thought overwhelming.

 

Moving home in later life generally means downsizing, which can be emotionally and physically demanding. This can interfere with a potential sale and even lead to withdrawing a property from the market as panic and inertia set in, when the client realises they cannot manage the work involved.

 

Senior Services can help facilitate a smooth sales process. We can ensure the home is well-presented and makes a positive first impression, assist with paperwork, help declutter, dispose of unwanted furniture, clear attics, garages and outbuildings. We support older clients emotionally and physically throughout the process and liaise with the estate agent. These measures help to keep the sale moving forwards, increase the likelihood of a successful and shorter completion and greatly reduce the estate agent’s work.


 

Care and Nursing Homes


Moving into residential care can be a distressing transition for many people. Where the client needs to move quickly, there is little time to sort out their belongings or affairs prior to the move. This can be very worrying for them and make it more difficult to settle into their new environment.

 

Working with a dedicated and experienced senior move manager can make a difficult time more manageable for all concerned. We work closely with the client, family and residential staff, keeping them informed and providing practical assistance and emotional support to ensure the move is as smooth as possible. This might include help with selling the home; organising the move and supporting the resident on move day; personal tasks (e.g. name labels on clothes, personal papers); disposing of unwanted possessions according to the client’s wishes; reading meters, clearing rubbish and cleaning the property.
