Until you have experienced a transition, either personally or with a loved one, it’s almost impossible to understand how stressful this period is for those dealing with this life-changing event. The sense of relief we see the Clients we serve confirms we are making a difference. - Michelle Begg
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) February 28, 2018
When Michelle and Dennis Begg opened Caring Transitions of the First Coast back in March of 2016, they were looking forward to making lives easier for seniors and families in their community. They had helped Dennis’ parents in Ohio move from a 30-acre farm to a small home in town and they understood the challenges people were facing.
Now, just two years later, the Beggs have been recognized with Caring Transitions’ National Shining Star Award as well as a franchise Top 10 Award. The awards were presented at the company’s national conference on February 9, 2018.
“Dennis and Michelle have persistently demonstrated their commitment to the success and growth of their business and the Caring Transitions system while becoming deeply engaged and connected with their region and home office staff. We recognized Dennis and Michelle with the Shining Star Award because we wanted to recognize how their mastery of service operations and building connections in their community have earned them a place in our top 10 less than two years after opening the business,” Caring Transitions Chief Operating Officer Al Scobell said.
The Beggs said they owe their success to their team and to the community.
“The support from the First Coast community has been amazing. As the community has come to understand our mission (helping families through the transition process) and our purpose (relieving the overwhelming stress related to that transition), they have embraced our services and our teams. Until you have experienced a transition, either personally or with a loved one, it’s almost impossible to understand how stressful this period is for those dealing with this life-changing event. The sense of relief we see in our Clients confirms we are making a difference,” Michelle said.
Caring Transitions is a national franchise in more than 200 markets. Caring Transitions of First Coast’s specially-trained team can handle organizing, packing, de-cluttering, moving, resettling, in-person and online estate sales, liquidations and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions specializes in managing senior relocations, but the services are also perfect for busy families and individuals in need of assistance. http://www.CaringTransitionsFirstCoast.com serves Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine and Palm Coast as well as the surrounding areas.
“Owning this business has been exhilarating. It’s like riding a roller coaster the first time – at times terrifying and, moments later, thrilling to realize we survived and that we are making a real difference. Dennis and I started this business as our second careers. We weren’t ready to retire and we also wanted to do something that could have a real and lasting impact. We believe we have found that with our Caring Transitions Business in the Florida First Coast,” Dennis said.
Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. All of Caring Transitions’ services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place.
As they celebrate their second anniversary, the Beggs are excited to look to the future.
“In 2018 and beyond we hope to take all the things we’ve learned and use them to better serve our community and clients,” Dennis said. “It’s wonderful to know our services make a difference. Setting up a new home, beds made, pictures hung, etc., in a safe community so that our client can go to dinner and go to sleep in their bed with all their boxes unpacked really helps to make the transition into the new lifestyle much smoother. And, taking care of the Estate Liquidation or Downsizing while minimizing out-of-pocket costs for families alleviates the overwhelming stress families feel when facing a house packed with a life-time of accumulated possessions.”
