For most, moves are stressful. But for some families with special situations, the stress that comes from moving can seem insurmountable. JK has the experience and the knowledge to ease the transition for families with special situations. We know that this isn't just about moving boxes; it's about moving people and moving lives.
Moving senior citizens.
Moving from the home you have always known to a retirement community or an assisted living facility can be one of life's most stressful situations. The seniors themselves go through a myriad of emotions; and it's even hard on the adult children and caregivers, who often experience a great amount of guilt when they decide to move a relative to a more suitable abode. Often times, seniors have spent decades in their homes—places where they raised their families and made lifelong friends. Even though seniors and family members know they need to downsize for practical reasons, it's hard to let go. Usually, seniors cannot take everything with them, and making decisions between which sentimental items to take and which ones to give away makes the situation even more stressful. JK Moving Services has worked with so many families. And even though we can't box up all the emotions that go with moving from the homestead to a senior facility, we work hard to make these kinds of transitions easy on our clients and on their families.
