Senior transitions, downsizing focus of April 13 event

Making a move to downsize your home may make sense on paper, but it is still a difficult choice. Taking steps to let go of some possessions may be wise both before and even after a major life transition.

As we age, possessions tend to accumulate in our homes. Sometimes, this accumulation can take over our space. Have you started to “right size” your possessions only to get derailed? Have you worried that you have too much “stuff?”

Learn realistic solutions for making the best use of your spaces and determining what possessions are most important to you at “Downsizing and Organizing for Senior Transitions,” a free event sponsored by Topeka Presbyterian Manor at the Big Biscuit, 2815 SW Wanamaker Road, Topeka.  

Naomi Frantzen, certified relocation and transition specialist (CRTS™), will share solutions and offer ideas on how to downsize and organize your space to make your current home more manageable. Whether simply organizing, downsizing or preparing for a possible transition, she will offer solutions on how you can take back control of your space.

Naomi happened on her career because she had a neighbor who hired her to help her out a little. As the woman grew older, her needs changed.

“My experience with her led me to senior move management,” Naomi said. “We handle every single detail involved in a transition.”

She sees the way she works as a partnership with each client.

“I try to emphasize that my goal is to give them options,” she said. “Ultimately, they decide (what to keep).”

“Downsizing and Organizing for Senior Transitions” is the last in a three-part series of educational events and part of Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask lifelong learning program featuring speakers and topics of interest to seniors and their adult children.
