WHAT IS A SENIOR MOVE MANAGER?
Senior Move Managers assist older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of either relocating to a new home or "aging in place." We have backgrounds in social work, healthcare, nursing, and psychology, which allow us to help our clients spend their golden years in a healthy, comfortable environment.
AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE IN 2015
By 2030, older adults will account for twenty percent of the U.S. population. Most families today are geographically dispersed, and adult children often have difficulty helping with any sort of transition or long-term care due to career and family obligations. Also, many older Americans haven't changed homes in several decades; those considering a relocation may have to significantly downsize their current belongings.
Inevitably, this process takes a physical and emotional toll on both older adults and their children. Next Step Home, with expertise and experience in Senior Move Management, helps older adults in the Hudson Valley area of New York State make the transition into a new home or reorganize current living space as painlessly as possible. We offer the following services:
...and anything else to assist the client in making this transition. Each client's needs are unique and each job is customized to suit your needs. Clients can choose some or all of our services.
Next Step Home provides professional support during one of the most difficult times in an adult's life. Services include the organization, transfer and disposition of personal and household belongings. We assist seniors in the process of moving to a new living situation, including smaller homes, apartments, senior residences or adult care facilities.
We also provide advice and coordination to residents who plan to stay in their present homes, but need to downsize or modify their surroundings to provide a safer and more accommodating living environment.
An initial one-hour evaluation and assessment is available with no obligation and at no cost. Next Step Home is a member the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM). All Next Step Home personnel are fully vetted, trained, and insured.

"From the moment your staff arrived at the house, it was a perfect match for my client. The organizational and downsizing services that your company provided was perfect for what we needed."
"Thank you so much for a job well done. It would've been extremely difficult for us to give my mother-in-law, who lives many miles away, the time and understanding she needed to part with so many possessions."
