Senior Move Management

Senior Move Management is the profession that assists older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation or “aging in place.”

Welcome to Make It Home – Senior Move Management in Raleigh, NC

Moving is not something that most people enjoy doing. When a person thinks of transitioning from one place to another, images of boxes full of belongings and empty walls with nail holes come to mind. And what about all the arrangements that need to be made: notifying people and companies of the new address, the timing of stopping and transferring utilities, finding contractors to repair those nail holes and other restorations needed to list a home for sale. Imagine what it’s like for someone planning a mid to late-life move. For older adults and their families this can be overwhelming. That’s where Make It Home can help! We simplify the process by planning and overseeing the necessary tasks to ensure a smooth and successful move. We manage the worrisome part of moving so you can focus on more fun and enjoyable things!

Make It Home for the Holidays!

Looking back at photos taken during the 2019 Holidays and 2020 New Year celebrations, it is impossible to imagine what 2020 was to bring. A new decade full of hope and excitement had arrived. Little did we know: this year was going to be unlike any that anyone alive...

It’s About Time! Now is the right time to start Downsizing and De-Cluttering

Ah! The transition from Daylight Saving to Standard Time, when we turn back the clocks and gain another hour in the morning. Whether you’re a “morning person” or not, it’s nice to have the additional time in the morning to get some things done. Which makes...

What do I do with my Stuff? Downsizers want to Know

As Senior Move Managers®, we’re often asked these questions: What will I do with all my “stuff” when I downsize? How should I sell my “stuff”? What is my “stuff” worth if I sell it? These are all great questions that deserve honest and straightforward answers....

We can’t imagine how we would have dealt with moving from a house with so many years of memories and of “stuff” without the expertise of Deanna. Her calm and deliberate manner, her knowledge base, good contacts and her hard work made it as doable and as stress free as possible! Highly recommend her and her staff.

What a blessing this service has been for my family. Moving my senior parents and downsizing was a manageable task with the help of Deanna. She created a personal relationship with them prior to the move that established a true sense of trust. She and her team worked hard to take the burden off of me and my parents. I would use your services again and highly recommend them. Working with Seniors at Woodland Terrace, I can see where her services could benefit others.

I spent what seemed like a year of weekends preparing for my parents’ move from one state to another. They were living in their home of 50 years and had accumulated a lot of things, not to mention a houseful of furniture that would not be moving with them. The sorting and deciding where things would go was incredibly time consuming. We had the help of some loyal friends. But it was still a tremendous strain on all of us. That was more than two years ago, and I still cringe when I think about the hard work and emotional drain that it was. I wish I had known then about senior move management services.
