Helping Aging Parents Relocate
Having the conversation with a parent or parents reluctant about moving is generally one that neither side enjoys. Parents because they don’t want to lose their independence, children because they feel, or know, this is the best solution. As with any major life change, no two scenarios are the same, nor should the approach to that change be cookie-cutter. Consider including a Senior Move Manager as part of that conversation. We might be able to belay some anxiety and answer questions to help in a resolution that works for both sides.
