Relocation


 

Moving home in later life can be a particularly daunting prospect. You may not know where to begin and feel overwhelmed by the task ahead. There may be no one to assist or your family live too far away.

 

Supporting an older person to move home means much more than simply packing boxes and calling a removals company. As experienced senior move professionals, we understand the physical and emotional challenges and changes older people face and the impact this can have on their ability to participate in the moving process.

 

Senior Services can take the burden off your shoulders and oversee the entire move, or assist with as much as you wish, typically...
