Make It Home reduces the worry and stress by providing professional, caring and cost-effective solutions to people who have decided to move or “age in place.”

Planning for Success

There is no substitute for a solid plan – one that outlines your objectives, timeline and strategy for achieving your goals. A good plan also includes flexibility and alternative strategies in case something changes along the way.

Understand your objectives:

  • Are you moving to a new place?
  • Are you planning to stay in your home and “age in place”?

Customize a plan to achieve your goals:

  • If you’re moving, you may need help preparing: determining what will move with you and downsizing, coordinating the move and setting up your new home.
  • If you’re going to age in place, you may need help rightsizing: organizing and decluttering, and making your home safer and more comfortable.

Testimonials

“I highly recommend Deanna and her team. Professional Perfection of the highest level. Kind, courteous and easy. Any and all stress was taken off my shoulders.”

Karen G.

“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.”

Lori J.

“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.”

Denise P.

“Thank you for your help. You all are Rockstars! You have saved me from going insane.”
