Downsized Living exists to take the worry out of one of life’s most stressful moments, that of moving house especially as we get older. This transition can be quite overwhelming for the residents as well as the family. This is not something you need to navigate alone. Debbie is your practical problem solver with many decades of experience as a project manager, medical practice administrator, professional organiser and personal concierge. Her forte of making people comfortable, putting minds at ease, planning the way forward, foreseeing issues, managing problems as they arise and taking care of every detail is what makes Debbie your ideal guide through these times of transition.
Downsizing and moving an older person is so much more than packing up possessions and calling a removalist. It is important to recognise the specific physical and emotional needs of an older adult during the moving process and account for them in your planning. Downsized Living takes into consideration your particular situation and plans accordingly to suit you.
After downsizing and moving her ageing mother into retirement accommodation in 2015, Debbie recognised the importance of support and guidance during such a life-changing event and expanded her professional organising and concierge business, Your Life My Time, to include managing senior moves.
I aspire to the downsized way of life and work hard to implement it in my daily life. It’s easy in this day and age to acquire more than we need and some of us find it difficult to divest ourselves of belongings that may no longer serve us. Tough decisions are needed, from time to time, but there is a way to enjoy the things we love while still living with less.
