Transitioning a Senior adult from their home to a retirement community can be stressful. During the process family emotions can run high and the Senior may become defensive or defiant. The services of an experienced third party can relieve the pressure on everyone.
Members of the Sensible Space staff have worked in the Senior industry for a number of years; several have lengthy experience as companion sitters and caregivers. This background provides valuable insight into various forms of dementia and physical infirmities. Having this knowledge sets our staff apart from most transition companies.
The Sensible Space Transition Service includes working with the Senior and/or family to choose furniture, accessories and memorabilia for the new home; placement planning for the new home; packing and moving; setting up the new home – including organizing closets and the kitchen (if applicable), hanging artwork, etc. Making certain that our client is comfortable and immediately feels at home is key to a successful move.
If a client or family is not sure where they would like to relocate, Sensible Space has exceptional contacts within the Senior industry. We can schedule introductions, visits and provide transportation as needed to assist with the decision making process.
When all the decisions have been finalized, there may be furnishings remaining that need to be sold or donated to a reputable charity. We have the contacts to handle this aspect relieving the family of yet another responsibility.
All of us at Sensible Space consider it a privilege and joy to work with our Senior clients. Our end goal is to see them happy and content with their new life so they can continue to thrive.
Communities where we have transitioned our clients; Aldersgate, Brighton Gardens, Sharon Towers, Southminster, and The Laurels (Pineville and Highland Creek).
We help Seniors keep a “home” feeling wherever they happen to live.
