What are Senior Move Managers?

Senior Move Managers and Relocation Specialists

Senior move managers are experts at helping older adults and their families with all of the physical and emotional aspects of a late-life transition. This may be selling a cherished home and moving to an apartment or moving from an adult child's home to an assisted living community. Whatever the situation, senior move managers can help.

These professionals come from a variety of backgrounds ranging from social work to health care marketing. What they typically have in common is a passion for working with seniors and some senior care experience.


Senior Move Managers receive accreditation from one of two organizations:

    - National Association of Senior Move Managers
    - Certified Relocation & Transition Specialist

Services Provided by Senior Move Managers

Senior move managers help with all of the details of a move. Those services typically include:

    - Educating seniors and their loved ones about the housing options available that best meet their needs
    - Help with all of the details of downsizing from arranging for an estate sale to creating a floor plan to the new home
    - Oversight of all of the details of the move whether it is a moving company or family movers
    - Unpacking and settling in to the new home

Cost to Hire a Senior Move Manager

The fees charged by senior move managers vary by location. Some move managers charge an hourly rate, while others offer bundled services. Our best advice is to shop around, ask friends with aging parents who have gone through this for referrals, and get estimates in writing before you sign a contract.

If selling your aging loved one's home is also a part of this transition, you might also want to explore the idea of using a senior real estate professional.
