I say this on every senior move. “It’s all about the destination.“
“Pack based on destination.” “Where will it go in the new home?” This is just another way to say “imagine.” We had a long day of packing a client who is moving tomorrow. The three of us were constantly touching base about how we would unpack and where things will go tomorrow.
Having a solid image of where one is moving and how things will be arranged is one of the most stress-reducing contributions we can make to our clients. This lady, in particular, is beginning to have short-term memory loss, so to be able to point to a floor plan and say, “See, we planned for this together – your things will be moved where you want them to go. They have a place in your new home.”
Today we repeated “destination” it until it almost became a mantra. It really is a journey. We take people from point A to point B, physically and emotionally, with ease and with compassion. I am so glad to be on this journey with our clients. Imagine.
