Learn more about Karen + Gail

Since 2001, we’ve helped hundreds of baby boomers and senior adults downsize, de-clutter and move. Many make the often difficult transition from family homes into seniors’ residences. Others just need to squeeze their “stuff” into a smaller space.

In the course of the average day, we sort through everything from collections of shoes to jewelry that literally fills up boxes. We see first-hand how a move for seniors is often accompanied by feelings of excitement, guilt and anxiety. Just the thought of going through years of accumulated treasures, downsizing and getting organized, causes people to become overwhelmed. 

With Gail’s teaching background and Karen’s background in recreation and gerontology, we think we make a pretty good team offering senior transition solutions, to help you make a move that’s as stress-free as possible.

We both absolutely love the work we do and look forward to meeting and helping you.
