DOWNSIZING PRESENTATION SET FOR 12/2 AT WATER’S EDGE LIGHTHOUSE RESTAURANT
GLENVILLE, NY (November 17, 2014) — The Meadows at Glenwyck, a 110-unit independent living community in Glenville designed for those 55+ who want to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle without all the hassles of home ownership, will host a “Downsizing for Seniors” presentation on Tuesday, Dec. 2 from noon-1:30 p.m.
Held at the Water's Edge Lighthouse Restaurant & Inn (2 Freeman's Bridge Road, Glenville), the talk is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Please call (518) 874-1638 to reserve a seat. Lunch will be served.
Helen Volk, founder and president of “Beyond Clutter,” will present. Volk will cover topics such as starting the downsizing process, learning how to deal with a life of sentimental items and donating unwanted items. The session will also feature an opportunity for attendees to ask questions about The Meadows at Glenwyck, which is slated to open in the spring.
“Downsizing can be a daunting and time-consuming process because there’s a lot of decision making involved,” said Summit Senior Living, LLC Principal Adam DeSantis. “We encourage those considering moving to an independent living community to begin the process up to a year in advance because in addition to putting a house on the market there are many possessions that need to be sorted through.”
Volk is a certified teacher, author, motivational speaker and licensed attorney who practiced law for 17 years before founding Beyond Clutter in 1991. A former pack rat, Volk now lives clutter-free and her story of transition serves as an inspiration to her students and clients. Volk has authored eight de-clutter books, including Downsizing for Seniors.
