You will likely need the services of an organizer/move manager, home repair contractors, realtor, senior living community personnel and others.

Downsizing moves require service providers with specialized expertise and although you may have used such professionals before, when a move happens in the 7th or 8thdecade of life, wants and needs have changed.
