Just the thought of downsizing can cause fear, worry, and stress for seniors and their families. Many people would like to make a move but have no idea where to start or what to do with all of the “stuff.” To help alleviate concerns and offer practical solutions, Ingrid and John Sullivan of Senior Downsizing Experts will present “The Ultimate Downsizing Seminar” at Brookdale Arlington on Thursday, September 8 at 2:30 pm.
“We want to ease the worries and make it more about upsizing your lifestyle than about downsizing your home,” says Ingrid. The Sullivans will give suggestions for creating a plan that allows for a new chapter of life which requires less maintenance and allows for more freedom and fun. They stress that careful planning and sound advice are crucial to a successful move.
How do you know if it is time for you to downsize? Here are just a few of the considerations:
- Do you have too much house for your current lifestyle?
- Has maintaining your home become a financial or physical burden?
- Does your home work with your current health situation and physical abilities?
- Would a move improve your lifestyle?
Featured guest speakers will include specialists in Title and Escrow, Packing and Moving, Home Repair, and Estate Sales. Admission is free but reservations are required. Register by calling 817-635-1043 or by visiting www.dallasfortworthseniorliving.com/events.
