The list can be overwhelming, especially if you are looking at it from the perspective of someone who just made this decision. Eleven years ago this week, my dearly departed parents had just landed in the Capital District and my sister and I had the honor and privilege of helping guide them from their warm and sunny home in FLA to a local assisted living facility. (It was actually snowing and 15 degrees. You remember when Winter was actually Winter and not Spring!). It was a profound experience and from that, in part, Call Sheilah! developed the expertise and ability to maintain the thirty thousand foot view. We work to organize, pack, sell, donate, discard, unpack, set up, procure, finalize and practice kindness and compassion (and comedy when appropriate!) all the while.
If you want a trained, skilled, thorough, kind, expert (with a great sense of humor) to manage the move for your family, please Call Sheilah! Not only do we have professional expertise, we have personal experience; Call Sheilah! has managed this the move personally as well as for several satisfied clients in the Capital District and Columbia County. Don’t hesitate! Call Sheilah! can help.
If you are choosing to manage inernally, there are some really thoughtful and extensive resources on-line, detail by detail, about how to manage this within your family. Please reach out to me for suggestions or check out the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) for some of those great resources on how to manage the move internally.
A friend of mine in Schenectady just texted me about her mother’s relocation. She and her siblings are managing this on their own. When I asked if there was anything I could do, she responded by asking me if I had any Moonshine stashed away. Call Sheilah! clients are not in need of Moonshine during this process. They are relaxed and well cared for, leaving every detail to us, so the family can concentrate on the delicate transition.
We all know life's many tasks can be overwhelming no matter what the project or reason. At Call Sheilah! we believe that suffering because of them is truly optional. Let us help manage transition in your life. Call Sheilah! and ask for help with any errands, projects, tasks especially ones that involve caring for your loved ones.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
