Senior Moves

Lighten Up! handles a move with care and compassion for a smooth transition.

Are you considering downsizing to a smaller home or moving to a retirement community and are wondering where to start? Moving is upsetting and stressful at the best of times. Sometimes family members live out of town or are unavailable to help. Other times there may be no family or friends to call on for assistance. After decades in the family home, sorting through memories and accumulated belongings can be emotional and overwhelming.

Lighten Up! specializes in helping older adults make the transition from one home to another. When it’s time to move, let us help to make the transition a little bit easier. We can do as much or as little as you need.
