Why should I pay someone to help me clear the clutter?
Anyone can clear the clutter, but unless you address the reasons why it got that way and create systems to keep things in order, the clutter will come back. Betsy will help you solve your organizing problems. In addition to helping you create a more organized space, Betsy will help you implement a system or process of maintaining control so you can reduce the clutter, improve your quality of life, as well as save time and money

What are the benefits of using the Senior Move services of Space and Time?
Senior moves are emotionally difficult, especially if they aren’t voluntary. At best, the organization and physical tasks associated with moving can be overwhelming when combined with health problems, time constraints and downsizing. Betsy can provide the constructive, positive support, and resources needed to make the smoothest possible transition. When a move requires downsizing, Betsy is sensitive to the feelings and emotions that are involved with the process of letting go and can provide confidential, non-judgmental support and guidance. Betsy has been referred to as a coach, objective party, advocate, life-saver, Godsend, miracle worker, and family referee.

Why should I call Space and Time and not a moving company?
Betsy does more than just move your stuff.  As a CRTS, Betsy provides professional assistance for all aspects of a move from start to finish. These services can include: coordination of the move, floor plans, packing, unpacking, recreating spaces to best suit your needs, sorting and disposition of unwanted items through sale or donation, and preparing your house for sale. Betsy helps manage your move so that it is a stress free and smooth as possible. She can provide consultation, hands on assistance, as well as a list of resources for whatever may be needed.

Who typically uses a CRTS/Senior Move Manager?
Everyone is unique and Space and Time is helping a variety of clients who are faced with the overwhelming task of downsizing and relocating. Most are adults, 55+, that have not moved in 20-40 years and need to downsize considerably. It could be the “baby-boomers” who need help to “right-size” their home for their new lifestyle or moving into a smaller space in an active retirement community.  It can be the older adult that is facing medical concerns and has to relocate to a smaller, assisted living community. Often, it is the adult children who make the initial contact because they either live somewhere else, or they are not readily available to help their parents with the daunting task of sorting through a life time of possessions. There are times when there is a crisis situation and Betsy can help the family get through a very difficult, emotional time by assisting with relocation or the disbursement of an estate.

How much does it cost?
Betsy will develop a customized plan to meet your needs.  The fees are based on the options you select and the size of your move. Whatever your need, Betsy can work with you to accomplish your goals, saving you stress, time, and in some cases money. One family lived out of state and found that contracting with Betsy was far less than it would have cost them to travel, pay for lodging, take time off from work, not to mention the emotional and physical strain that it would have cost.

What is "Aging In Place" ? Can you help with this?
Most people would rather stay in their own home instead of moving to a retirement or assisted living community. The Journal of Housing for the Elderly states that “Aging in place is not having to move from one’s present residence in order to secure necessary support services in response to changing need.” That simply means that people need to change their living environment to best suit their present needs. As a Professional Organizer and a Move Manager, Betsy can help to make the changes that are needed to make the home safer and appropriate to your needs. These services include constructive, positive support and guidance with organizing important documents and possessions, the disbursement of unwanted items through sale or donation and creating the spaces that will work for you.
