Creating a Safe Environment for Aging Adults

Learn how to recognize that the older adult in your life needs help and how to find resources to meet their needs while still allowing them to be as independent as they like.

Space Planning For Your New Home

The first step in downsizing is planning what furniture will fit in your space. Once you have that decided, you can more easily start looking at the smaller items, deciding what will go with you and what you can live without.

Downsizing Photos

Photos tend to take a lot of space when they are stored in albums. Learn how to store your photos where they are safe from damage and take less space in your home.

Downsizing by Shopping Through The House

Downsizing can be as easy as taking a shopping trip through your own house. It is important to focus on what you do want in your home when downsizing rather than focusing on all you will not be taking. Let us help make downsizing easy by shopping through your home.
