Resources for Moving a Senior in Indiana

  • August 10, 2015

When it is time for an older family member to transition to a new home in an Indiana senior living community, preparing for the move can feel overwhelming. Downsizing a home an aging loved one has lived in for many decades is not an easy process. The good news is there are several groups of professionals who are dedicated to making the transition go more smoothly.

Resources for Moving a Senior Loved One

Here are three resources you may find to be of help:

  • Certified Relocation & Transition Specialist (CRTS): This group of professionals is certified in helping older adults with all phases of a move. They have experience with downsizing and with preparing for the actual day of the big move. Most will also help connect you with other community organizations that can make this whole experience easier. Search for a specialist in your area by zip code. They also have other helpful move-related resources on their website.
  • Seniors Real Estate Specialists (SRES): Selling a house that has been home for many years can be an emotionally challenging time. Finding a realtor who understands that can help ease the pain of parting with the family home. Realtors who have this designation have received special training in a variety of senior related topics ranging from reverse mortgages to parting with family treasures. You can search their website to find a local SRES professional near your Indiana senior loved one.
  • National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM): This is an organization of senior move managers who have all gone through the NASMM Cornerstone Course in Senior Move Management Ethics and Accountability course. Members are screened for insurance and for experience. Their website has a directory you can use to find an Indiana Senior Move Manager near your family member.

We hope this information is of help to you and your senior loved one!
