Downsizing doesn’t have to be difficult if you have the right resources working for you. People moving to Erickson Living communities utilize the services of a personal moving consultant who will start with a floor plan and offer the help of a move manager. These resources are invaluable and are the first step in the process.

Last November, Jan Shenefelt moved from a condo in Northville, Mich., to Fox Run. She had some friends who were already residents at the Erickson Living community in Novi, Mich., and they periodically invited her to dinner at the on-site restaurants.

If you’re putting off a move to a retirement community because you can’t imagine where you’ll put all your stuff, I have good news! While it’s true that transitioning from a large house to a cozier, condensed living space will require some downsizing, it doesn’t mean you can only bring the bare essentials to your new home.

New Tallgrass Creek residents Mary Ann and Gil Collins began their search for a retirement community several years before they were ready to move.

“We didn’t want to make a mistake,” says Gil. “So we took our time and looked at a lot of different communities.”

When Paul and Mary Kliauga moved to Seabrook, the Erickson Living community in Tinton Falls, N.J., Mary’s sister Theresa Park wasn’t far behind them. Though she was more than 1,600 miles away in Waco, Tex., she moved just under a year after Paul and Mary in April 2014.

“Where did all of this paper come from?” 

Do you find yourself asking this question when looking at the piles of paper clutter throughout your home? Newspapers, magazines, junk mail, bills, and bank statements all add up to a mountain of paper. If the paper isn’t sorted and organized, it can quickly build up and overtake areas of your house.
