Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 28, 2006
Now senior citizens in the Chicago area have a helping hand to make moving simple with the help of the company Simple Living For Seniors. The company is owned and operated by Daphne Wilson, who started the business after helping her aunt move out of her home of 35 years.
"After my uncle passed, my aunt didn't want to stay in her home any longer, says Daphne Wilson. "Without my uncle, she wasn't able to maintain the upkeep. She asked me to help."
Wilson not only helped her aunt find a new place to live, but helped her every step of the way, from deciding what to take, and what to do with the many things she could not or did not want to take, to sorting, packing, arranging for movers, unpacking everything and setting up her new home space.
Fortunately, project management and organization skills are a natural for Wilson and she turned these skills into a full time business, Simple Living for Seniors.
"The mission of my company is to make the moving process flow smoothly for our clients," says Wilson. "The end result is a stress-free, positive experience."
Simple Living For Seniors receives referrals from doctor's offices, The Senior Citizens Guide of Greater Chicago, home health agencies, estate planners, various senior communities in and around Chicago and word of mouth. The company is insured and bonded. Simple Living For Seniors is a member of the Better Business Bureau (bbb.org), the National Association of Senior Move Managers (nasmm.org) and the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce (http://www.chicagolandchamber.org).
The services of a Senior Move Manager are ideal for the elderly and persons with disabilities who wish to maintain their independence and manage their living arrangements. "It's important to understand that we work WITH our clients and in many cases with their family members. We don't dictate to them," says Wilson. "It's very important to respect our client's belongings. We understand that downsizing can be a very emotional experience."
Simple Living For Seniors offers peace of mind for family members who live in other parts of the country and are unable to take time off from work, have other family responsibilities or simply lack the resources to come to the Chicago area to help their elderly family member move out of their home.
"We do as little or as much as is needed," says Wilson. "We're there to put it all together and make sure that the move proceeds as planned."
When it's all said and done, seniors can rest easy on the very first night in their new home. The boxes are gone, the beds are made, the bathroom is set up just waiting for a long, hot bath, the kitchen is stocked with fresh groceries, pictures are neatly hung and a new phase of life has begun...again.
