Why is Senior Move Management needed in Arkansas?
According to the latest Plan on Aging in Arkansas, over 20% of the population in Arkansas is over 60 years of age and trends are showing a 72% increase by the year 2030. Furthermore, Arkansas ranks poorly in the areas of Health Issues and Concerns which include: seniors with poor health, food insecurity, and physical inactivity. If we couple these issues with the physical and emotional losses as people age - loss of mobility, loss of health, loss of independence, and loss of companionship, the stress associated with moving or downsizing is enough to make someone ill. Also, Arkansas’ seniors ranked “having a place to live” as a Top 10 concern as they age. Finally, we have the children to consider in this equation. The adult children are stretching the limits of time-management. Some are coping with a distance factor, but they all have careers, family obligations and the desire to help, but can’t seem to fit it all in. Arkansas needs Down2Size to plan and implement the move or downsizing process for aging adults and their families.
Why should you choose a Move Manager?
• Experts - locating resources and planning to reduce stress
• Business Mindset - always looking for approaches to save money and produce results
• Customer Service Oriented - client’s needs and satisfaction comes first
• Education - continually learning and sharing best practices
• Membership - members of a strong organization (NASMM) which requires a commitment to their Code of Ethics and Professionalism
How are Senior Move Managers different from a moving company?
Move Managers use a multi-faceted approach to your moving experience. From the beginning - using space-saving techniques and floor planning tools to maximize your space, to the end - providing support and advocacy to reduce your stress and anxiety. Our job isn't just packing/unpacking and moving boxes, it’s minimizing chaos, creating a customized seamless plan of action and addressing every aspect of the moving process.
How much do you charge?
We take a “One Size Does Not Fit All” approach to our fee schedule. Every individual is different so we listen to your clients’ needs, then provide a customized estimate outlining the cost of the job before you submit any payment to us. At Down2Size, our goal is to ease your stress, not add to your concern.
