The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) has declared the week of May 13-19 National Senior Move Managers Week. With a theme of “It’s so much more than moving…”, the 6th annual celebration will promote the value of Senior Move Management and the commitment Senior Move Managers have to assisting the elderly and their families through the emotional and physical aspects of downsizing a lifetime of memories during their relocation process.Recognizing and managing the stress of moving older adults is the trademark of the NASMM. “When older adults have not moved in 30, 40, or 50 years, they need to downsize. It’s so much more than moving when you are helping older adults transition to a new home. The organizational and physical tasks, coupled with the safety and ethical issues in executing such a move, can be overwhelming,” said Mary Kay Buyssee, NASMM’s Executive Director.
Adults ages 85 and above are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. and Canadian populations. Therefore, since 2002, the NASMM has dedicated themselves to assisting older adults and families with the physical and emotional demands of downsizing, relocating, or modifying their homes.
