A Message From Gavin Broadfoot


As we step into November, we’re reflecting on the importance of transition, especially for our aging loved ones who may be moving into a new phase of life. Moving can be a significant endeavor at any age, but for seniors, it often comes with unique considerations. In this issue, we share valuable insights and tips for making senior transitions as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Stay well and safe,

Gavin Broadfoot, President of Yarnall

Seniors in Transition: A Guide to Stress-Free Moves

Why Seniors Move

The reasons for moving as a senior typically fall into a few categories:

  • Downsizing: Many seniors choose to downsize to a smaller, more manageable living space with less physical demands involving upkeep.
  • Assisted Living or Retirement Communities: Some seniors require or opt for a supportive community tailored to their needs.
  • Closer to Family: Being closer to loved ones is a common motivation for senior relocations.
  • Health Reasons: Changes in health often necessitate moves to accommodate special requirements and medical assistance.

Tips for a Stress-Free Senior Move

  • Plan Ahead: Start the process well in advance to allow time for thorough planning, decision-making, and the emotional impact of leaving a longtime home.
  • Sort and Declutter: Go through belongings together, keeping ones that holds sentimental value and/or are practical for the new space.
  • Professional Assistance: Consider hiring a senior move manager to coordinate all aspects of the move.
  • Safety First: Make sure the new space is safe, especially if there are any mobility challenges.
  • Customize the New Space: Ensure the new home meets specific needs, such as grab bars, ramps, or other accessibility features.
  • Preserve Memories: Create a plan to preserve cherished items and memories throughout the process.
  • Emotional Support: Recognize that moving can be an emotional experience and provide the support needed to ease the transition.
