Disability, chronic illness and just the natural process of aging can set us and our loved ones up for having to make some important, and sometimes difficult, decisions. I have found in my experience as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) that when it comes time to consider alternative living options for our loved ones, decisions might be made that don’t necessarily need to be made – such as, selling a loved one’s house when there may be a better alternative.
Because life-changing events can be scary and emotions are often high, I have committed myself to serving the needs of seniors and their caregivers so that you make the best decisions during this time. That is one reason I am offering the Caregivers Library as a resource so that you have the information you need to make the most informed and helpful decisions possible.
With more than 20 years experience and my SRES designation, I have made it my commitment to focus on people more than commissions and to work with personal integrity, thoroughness and a high attention to detail. In addition to SRES, I am also a member of Active Adult Living and The Senior Center in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as The National Care Planning Council.
This involvement enables me to be an even more valuable resource for you and your family when it comes time to make life-changing decisions. Such as, does your loved one need to sell their house and move into an assisted living facility, or is there a way to help them keep their house by updating it and making it livable for a lifetime? Maybe they need to move from a two-story home to a one-story. Or, it may be that they simply need an in-home aide or personal errand service to help them get over a few humps. Perhaps you need to sell your home and purchase another that has an in-law apartment.
As you navigate through my Caregivers Library and my real estate website at www.FindHomesInCharlottesville.com, you will see that I have much more to offer than just real estate expertise. I can help you with referral services your loved one may need – such as movers, packing services, home improvement contractors, even services that can help you organize and sell personal items. Or, if your loved one has financial or credit issues and is in need of a qualified financial advisor, these resources are available, as well.
I invite you to visit the “Local Resources” section of my Caregivers Website for referral sources that are already available to you. If you are unable to find the depth of advice you need on my FREE information links, then I will be glad to serve as a personal consultant on a fee-for-service basis or refer you to a seniors’ transitions specialist. For more information on this service, please follow this link to the Services for Seniors section of my real estate website.
Most importantly, remember that you are not alone. There are so many resources available today that will help you and your loved one as you make this journey together. I am looking forward to serving you and your family.
