EMPOWERING SENIORS TO CONFIDENTLY PLAN FOR THEIR NEXT MOVE
We help Seniors and their families take a proactive approach to reducing the hidden dangers of Relocation Stress Syndrome (RSS).
INTELLIGENT NextStep SOLUTIONS
Customized and personalized plans for transitioning to retirement living, assisted living and aging in place

No matter what the reason is, moving can be a complete lifestyle change for anyone. For Seniors, in particular, the stress of moving can trigger a medical condition called Relocation Stress Syndrome (RSS). Changes in sleeping habits and appetite, feelings of insecurity, and lack of trust are often experienced, making adjustments to new living arrangements very difficult, both physically and emotionally.

We assist Seniors and their families from the beginning to the end of any transition with our customized plans to ease the physical and emotional burden of impending change.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

Thank you just doesn’t seem enough! The ease from which you planned, organized, packed and moved to the look on our dad’s face walking into his new space for the first time, set up with his most important and treasured belongings, was absolutely priceless. He is settled in now, enjoying his new (and very social) life and we couldn’t be happier!

Sonia T. & John L.

When you get older, people think you can’t make decisions for yourself anymore.  I’m so grateful for Kathy and Nicole at NextStep because they took the time to listen and respected my decisions. I didn’t have much choice about my move, but what choice I did have, they managed to make me feel that I was still in charge. We laughed a lot and even shed a few tears over old memories. They made my move to assisted living bearable.
