Next Chapter Senior Services began shortly after Cheryl and Dawn helped their own parent’s transition from their large family homes into smaller, more manageable residences, closer to their family and friends.
It became apparent, that the sheer volume of work involved in downsizing years of memories and mementos would require multiple skilled services. These services began with the selection of the new residences and included sorting, packing, moving and set up at the new location. All these details were creating a great deal of distress for their parents, so they rallied the troops and stepped in to help.
During the transition our founders had an “AH-HA” moment in which they realized they had finally found their passion, “Transitional Move Management”. They loved the adventure of scouting out the new residences and relished the time spent sharing memories, as they helped to pack up items to relocate to the new home or to be released (by sale or donation) to lucky new recipients.
Cheryl and Dawn discovered a wonderful sense of accomplishment in providing compassionate, caring, cost effective home transition services. The reduced stress and ease of lifestyle that they witnessed once the move was complete sealed their fate and Next Chapter Senior Services was born.
