The Barrington of Carmel hosts “Mastering your Move” Seminar to Help Residents Transition into their New Home
“Jennifer gave great advice about how much ‘stuff’ I could bring and worked with my floor plan to know what would work in that space,” described Story. “Jennifer then helped me get rid of what was left by either selling it at auction or donating it. Jennifer left at 6:00p.m. the night of the move, there wasn’t a box in sight! Everything was put away. It was worth every penny!”
Like many, Story could not do the heavy-lifting physically that a move requires, so she appreciated the help with the careful packing and loading that Jennifer and her team provided. It was also a relief to have them unload and unpack everything in her new apartment for her once she got to The Barrington. Now Story is free to spend her time enjoying the new community she calls home and meeting everyone there instead of unpacking and trying to determine where to put all of her belongings.
“I wish I could have moved in here five years ago as soon as I’d signed up,” said Story. “I want to enjoy all the amenities as much as I can for as long as I can. I urge people not to wait too long to make the decision to move in; they should come while in good health! Everyone I talk to is so happy and grateful to be here – it’s a happy place!”
“We want our residents to have the smoothest transition possible as they make The Barrington their new home, and we hope to help alleviate the stress that often comes with relocating,” said Dana Shore, director of sales and marketing for The Barrington. “We were happy to host Jennifer of Senior Smart Moves to make sure our residents know about the services that are available to them. We want the moving process to be a positive experience overall and our residents to focus on just enjoying their time here.”
