RIGHT-SIZING: AGING IN PLACE OR MOVING TO A NEW RESIDENCE

Whichever direction is “right” for you, Smooth Transitions® of New York is here to help. For out-of-town family members, we provide invaluable peace of mind that a professional is coordinating your loved one’s affairs with the personal attention you would give.

 

If you decide to age in place, our Transition Specialists can make your home safe and accessible. We can develop and oversee a plan to make appropriate modifications and improvements such as grab bars and handrails, doors with lever handles, ramps, widening of doorways and hallways, lowering of shelves, slip resistant floors, stair lifts, re-fitting bathrooms and a host of other safety features.

 

If you decide to move to a new residence, our Transition Specialists can facilitate your move in an efficient and cost effective manner. We alleviate the stress of selecting the best place to move, deciding what to take with you, hiring a mover, packer, unpacker, selling and donating your belongings, re-homing your pets, setting up your new residence and finding the best real estate professional to sell your house.

 

DEATH OF A LOVED ONE

A death in the family requires immediate attention and daily responsibilities or distances can make addressing the many tasks associated with concluding your affairs daunting. Smooth Transitions® of New York can help make these feasible and timely. Working under the direction of family members, attorneys or trust officers, we can organize and distribute the estate according to you and your family member’s wishes.

 

We take the pressure off the family during already trying times by facilitating the dispersal of household belongings, prepping the home for sale (cleaning and repairs), and finding the best real estate professional to sell the house.
