This organization is the ONLY professional association in North America that deals specifically with later living and transition issues for the 55+ population. Founded in 2002, NASMM works hard to increase industry awareness and create a national referral network of senior movers to help with the transition. Senior move managers are used by a variety of sources such as older adults, bank and trust officers, attorneys, Realtors, staging professionals, family members, geriatric care managers, social workers, physicians, and senior living communities.

Another great asset of senior move managers is they can also assist in helping seniors staying in their current home and assist in organization skills and “aging in place.”
