The Move Makers Celebrates 2022 National Senior & Specialty Move Managers Week

The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) has designated the week of September 11-17 as National Senior & Specialty Move Managers Week. During this recognition week, NASMM and NASMM members around the world are promoting the value of Senior & Specialty Move Management and Move Managers’ commitment to assisting older adults and their families with later lifestyle transitions and individuals who have unique needs.  

Senior & Specialty Move Managers assist adults and their families with both downsizing to remain in their current home, as well as the entire process of moving to a new residence. Move Managers specialize in helping their clients with the emotional and physical aspects of sorting through a lifetime of memories in the transition process, while providing them with effective options and resources to increase efficiencies and reduce stress. The theme of this year’s celebration, “Our Time to Shine,” underscores the brightness, dedication, compassion, commitment, and unique skills Senior Move Managers® offer their clients and families throughout the downsizing, relocation or aging in place process.

The Move Makers are proud to be the first move management company in the Pacific Northwest to earn the A+ Accreditation from the National Association of Senior Move Managers.
