I help seniors and their families untangle the problems associated with senior health care and long-term planning.

Oftentimes clients come to me confused or discouraged not knowing how to solve their problems. Assisting my clients to overcome these challenges and rescuing their assets for their family gives me a great sense of pride. Ensuring that my clients feel comfortable, heard, and understood is paramount. With a tailored plan of action we move forward to accomplish the client’s goals.

Senior Moving

We know this is an emotional and difficult time, our company helps to relieve some of that burden by downsizing your parents estate through an Estate Sale. We do all the work and when we are finished we send you a check and the house is ready for market.

Senior Services

All In Organizing assists clients with de-cluttering their homes, downsizing, packing and unpacking contents, organizing paperwork or anything else that helps. We also complete donation drop off, debris removal and a free initial on-site consultation to discuss in detail how best to accomplish the desired organizing goals.

DASH Organizing is committed to helping make downsizing less stressful. We will help you decide what to keep, and what to do with the things you want to let go. We can even unpack you into your new home making sure everything has a place and flows for you.

Organize and Downsize helps older adults plan to relocate and manages the details of their move. We guide our older clients through the potentially overwhelming tasks of sorting a lifetime of treasured possessions, help disburse what must be let go, and provide assistance with packing, moving, and organizing the new home. We provide and manage a network of service providers, i.e. movers, liquidators, estate sale professionals, contractors, and realtors ... but the biggest benefit we provide is to RELIEVE STRESS during a challenging transition ~ with compassion, professionalism, and care.
