Moving and downsizing can be emotionally traumatic for an elderly person, and aging in place can be physically risky — but they don’t have to be. If you have the right guide, these transitions and decisions can be a time of appreciation, cleansing, and healing.
Kathryn McMillan of Clutter Conversions is such a guide. In addition to her organizational expertise, Kathryn earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Science (with a minor in Secondary Education) from James Madison University, and she has extensive experience with senior citizens and their families as the head administrator for two assisted living facilities.
Most importantly, Kathryn has a deep respect for the elderly and an intuitive understanding of the emotional impact of downsizing. She knows that spaces and possessions are often the containers for a lifetime of memories and meaning, and she works closely and gently with her clients to create a successful transition.
If you or your loved one encounters one of the following situations, consider looking into the services of Clutter Conversions:
- Moving to new home
- Downsizing for a move to a senior living community
- A cluttered home makes it easy to fall or to lose track of important financial or medical information
- Mobility problems create the need for a more efficient space
In addition to their work with the elderly, Clutter Conversions can help anyone organize their space, their time or their life. They offer personal coaching, motivational classes and individually customized programs to fit your particular situation.
