Helping Mom "Rightsize"

Q.  My aging mom needs to downsize. Where does she start?

A.  Start with how you approach the topic.  Today's seniors prefer the term "rightsizing" vs downsizing since downsizing has a negative connotation such as in a job loss so choose your words carefully.  Helping your mom understand her options and asking where she would like to live would be your first step.  Is your mom active? What does she do for fun? Where are her weekly destination points such as shopping, doctors and the like? To help you get started, we're offering our readers a free "Moving on Guide" designed to assist seniors in making this transition.

To get your free guide, just email Phyllis at with your full contact info and we'll get one out to you asap. Good luck with your mom.
