“I hope everyone that attended gained lots of helpful tips to aid them in the moving process,” said Jaclyn Overby, move-in and relocation manager for The Stayton. “I know everyone is busy preparing for the upcoming opening of The Stayton, and the entire staff is here to help make the transition as smooth as possible.”
As The Stayton is set to open its doors to its first group of residents in late September, many residents are considering how the belongings they’ve accumulated over their lifetime will fit in their new luxury apartment home. With the help of local vendors, including realtors, estate sale organizers, moving and storage companies and organization specialists, guests were given a wealth of knowledge to help ease their minds.
Michele Parchman, professional organizer and co-founder of Senior Focused Relocations, gave an enlightening presentation on the steps one needs to take to make downsizing as stress-free as possible, ranging from deciding on what artwork and family photos to keep to utilizing floor plans to visualize what furniture will fit in the new home. “Rightsizing”
“With current population trends, rightsizing will become a common theme among older Americans,” said Justin Spooner, executive director for The Stayton. “I believe those that attended the moving expo were introduced to new resources and information that they will be able to put to use to support them during their move. The feeling in the room was upbeat and positive, and I think many future residents were able to breathe a sigh of relief once they realized how many people are here to help them.”
