GLENVILLE, NY (Feb. 22, 2018) -- Downsizing from the house you've lived in for decades can be a bittersweet moment. Not only does it hold precious memories of family gatherings and time spent with growing children, but it also can be stressful sorting through belongings, packing and making important decisions about what you want to take with you to your new home.

On Monday, Feb. 26 at 1 p.m., Michelle Kavanaugh, president/CEO of Organize Senior Moves and Joe Mazzone, owner, Mazzone's Auction Service, will present a downsizing for seniors presentation. The talk, which will take place at The Meadows at Glenwyck (150 Dutch Meadows Lane in Glenville), will focus on house clean-outs, estate sales, auctions, appraisals, and moving/delivery services.

"Downsizing can be daunting, but the freedom people feel after it's all said and done makes it all worthwhile," said Glenwyck Senior Living Consultant Scott Bryant. "Many seniors find that moving into a senior living community enhances their lives in ways they never previously imagined. Besides no longer having to worry about home maintenance, they are healthier, happier and have greater social interaction."

Kavanaugh is a lifelong resident of the Capital Region and has worked with the senior population for many years. Organize Senior Moves, which she founded in 2010, aims to make the move as smooth and stress free as possible for its clients. Toward that end, the company can help seniors with their downsizing/de-cluttering needs; prepare for an estate sale; develop a custom floor plan for their new home; recommend moving companies, realtors and other professionals; pack belongings for safe transport to the new home; and, unpack belongings, set up electronics, and hang pictures in the new home.
