What does Smooth Transitions do?
We are here to help create an environment that fits the need of seniors.
What makes a senior move manager different from just a moving company?
Senior move managers multi-task for the client's move process, providing whatever help is needed: from choosing a perfect community to move into, space planning, unpacking at the new home and dispersal of left over possessions at the end.
Senior move managers minimize the chaos and stress associated with moving for the client by creating and executing an action plan customized to the client's wishes.
Senior move managers do so much more than simply sort, settle and move boxes. With energy, enthusiasm and experience, senior move mangers take the worry (and work) out of the move process. The clients job is to simply enjoy his or her new living arrangement.

About Smooth Transitions Southern Indiana:
I have had a very successful career in estate and trust management with two of Louisville's major banks. Most recently I have worked in Southern Indiana in the legal profession for an Elder Care Attorney, with responsibilities of processing Veterans Affairs applications. Since focusing much of my work with the senior population, this has lead me into my new career path and join the professional of "Smooth Transitions" to assist with all aspects of Senior living. I will assist you in all aspects of moving, downsizing and estate dispersals.
