Senior Moments | Episode 6: Let's talk about "right sizing" not down-sizing

Owner of Smooth Transitions® Cleveland, Laura Armbuster, joins us in our most recent episode where she talks about “right sizing” with her senior clients. Right sizing is “the conscious choice to look at your life and think about what you need at this point in your life.” Where do you actually spend time and what space are you making use of? Anyone, at any point in their life can “right size” by taking into consideration their activities, family compostion, what you enjoying, your age, etc. and creating a plan to have your living space reflect your lifestyle.
Laura has a long family history of helping people move. Her father owned a full service traditional moving company. And as a young adult, Laura witnessed the stress of down-sizing when her grandmother became chronically ill after a challenging cross country move. As part of a nationwide network of Smooth Transitions® move managers, Laura provides support and compassion to families experiencing one of life’s most stressful transitions.

Senior Moments | Episode 5: The sandwich generation

On their latest Senior Moments podcast, special guest Howard Schreiber talks with Brad and Heather about the support they provided during his mother’s illness. With sisters living out of town, caregiving and financial decision making fell almost exclusively on Howard’s shoulders, and he also had a family of his own to provide for. With the support of a Care Coordinator, his mom was able to stay in her home for longer than expected through the use of the Passport home care program.
Our team worked closely with the family’s financial planner, to ensure that Mom and Dad could maintain their quality of life and standard of living throughout her long illness. “Heather was so good to my mother, she treated Mom better than [family].”
