Smooth Sailing: How SRES and NASMM Help Seniors Navigate to Senior Living

Downsizing and transitioning to a senior living community can be a daunting prospect for seniors and their families. Luckily, there are resources available to make the process smoother and less stressful. This blog will explore two key organizations: the Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation and the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), and how they can assist seniors on their journey to a new chapter in life.

Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES):

  • Who they are: SRES designees are real estate professionals who have received specialized training in understanding the unique needs and challenges faced by seniors when considering a move.
  • How they help: An SRES can provide valuable guidance throughout the process. They can:
    • Help assess senior living options: SRES designees are familiar with the different types of senior living communities, such as independent living, assisted living, and memory care. They can help you understand the levels of care offered and match your needs with the right community.
    • Navigate financial considerations: SRES professionals can advise you on the financial aspects of senior living, including entrance fees, ongoing costs, and potential tax implications.
    • Facilitate the sale of your current home: Many SRES designees have experience working with seniors who are downsizing and selling their homes. They can offer valuable insights on marketing your property and navigating the selling process.

National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM):

  • Who they are: NASMM is a professional organization for Senior Move Managers®. These are individuals who specialize in assisting seniors and their families with the logistics and emotional aspects of relocation.
  • How they help: A Senior Move Manager can provide a wide range of services, including:
    • Downsizing and decluttering: Senior Move Managers can help you sort through your belongings, decide what to keep, donate, or sell, and manage the downsizing process in a compassionate and organized way.
    • Packing and unpacking: They can take care of the physical tasks of packing and unpacking, freeing you up to focus on other aspects of the move.
    • Connecting with resources: Senior Move Managers have a network of resources available to assist with everything from finding movers and settling into your new home to connecting with local senior services.
    • Emotional support: The transition to a new living situation can be emotionally challenging. Senior Move Managers can provide support and guidance throughout the process.

Working Together for a Smooth Transition

SRES professionals and Senior Move Managers can often work collaboratively to ensure a smooth transition for seniors moving to senior living communities. An SRES can help you find the right community, while a Senior Move Manager can handle the logistics of the move itself.

Remember, you don't have to go through this process alone. There are resources available to help you make this new chapter a positive and fulfilling one.
