We recently visited with Linda’s Daughter, an Indianapolis-based service offering end-to-end senior moving management and aging-in-place services.
Linda’s Daughter takes an empathetic approach while working with seniors. Understanding the client’s goals and fears is their top priority. Once the client's goals are known, the team at Linda's Daughter works to exceed expectations.
Individual team members intentionally work with the clients to preserve, sometimes in new ways, the memories they have made over a lifetime.
Senior move management starts by collaborating with clients to plan out a new space - be it a modification to where they currently live or a complete move. Clients have found envisioning a new space to help eliminate stressors around rearranging furniture or downsizing items.
Typically, the senior move management service begins with a home visit from an occupational therapist (OT). The OT will give expert advice on what modifications will need to be made for the client to be safe and suitable going forward. From there, the team at Linda's Daughter will propose a complete project plan which includes the OT's recommendations. Once the plan is approved by the client, the team at Linda's Daughter will:
- Begin the search for qualified contractors;
- Manage contractor quotes;
- Oversee the work being done;
- Declutter the space;
- Rearrange furniture.
Items not being moved will get sorted into groups:
- Give away (to charity or family);
The team at Linda's Daughter will then sell designated items, make item donations, manage the physical move (or rearranging), and conduct any final cleaning. Most importantly, they get the client settled into their new or new-to-them home. From making the bed, hanging photos, stocking the fridge and more - aging in place services are wide-ranging and vary from client to client.
Linda's Daughter serves clients throughout the metro Indianapolis area, Marion County, and surrounding Central Indiana counties. They are a member of National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), thus giving them a great network of senior move managers throughout the country for interstate moves.
Linda’s Daughter can be contacted by calling 317-999-9787 or my emailing [email protected].
