As Baby Boomers and their parents retire, many are choosing to downsize to a simpler life. With their children out of the nest, many are seeking a more comfortable living environment as they age. Many are choosing to spend their retirement years living in a smaller home, retirement community, or with their adult children. This transition is often too overwhelming and very stressful. With years of memories and accumulated “stuff” in their home, they simply don’t know where to begin. With little to no help available, many aren’t able to make the move so they stay where they are even if they know that other living options would be better for them.
The Good News is, now there is a solution to this growing issue developing in our community of retirees.
Senior Move Managers LLC, also dba De-clutter Hawaii, was formed by Dan and Julie Ihara in October 2010. After years of servicing senior clients in their Real Estate business, they have created efficient, friendly tools that help Seniors downsize their personal belongings. They’ve learned ways that help people de-clutter their home and detach from their personal belongings. In January of 2011, they joined the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) as the first and only Senior Move Management firm in Hawai‘i. Dan’s niece, Cynthia Goya Arnold, is the Vice President of Operations and manages the day-to-day services for their clients. Since the inception, Senior Move Managers has helped hundreds of clients move into Retirement Communities, Condos, as well as helped clear out family Estates where parents have passed on.
We’ve seen it all: from the vacant “hoarder home” to the everyday Senior who has lived in the same home for 80 years. No job is too big, or too small for us to help. We have also been called on to downsize and de-clutter homes to make them safer and more functional for those choosing to stay at home and age in place. No matter what your age, most people can use help with de-cluttering their home. Each client receives customized services based on their personal situation. We do anything to help our clients minimize stress. Seniors like that we’re insured, bonded and nationally certified with the NASMM.
Senior Move Managers offers a free one hour consultation to determine your goals, create a plan and schedule to meet those goals. Senior Move Managers is part of The Complete Solution for Seniors who also helps seniors with finding alternative living environments, improve the value of their home and sell their home for the highest price within your time frame.
We started this business to help families through an often challenging phase of life. As a local, family-owned and operated business, we treat you like our family. Call us and you’ll see our passion to serve and compassion for Seniors. Cynthia Arnold at 808-221-8345, or Dan Ihara at 808-256-7873.
