Step-By-Step Seniors Downsizing Experts
Catherine is the founder and CEO of Step-By-Step Seniors’ Downsizing Experts. A downsizing move is an enormous project to undertake and can become overwhelming. Catherine has over 25 years of extensive project management experience, including leading protracted negotiations with a union representing more than 25,000 members. That project management experience helped in the past when downsizing and moving seniors and ensures that services will be seamless, efficient and successful.
Step-by- Step offers total peace of mind to seniors and their adult children when its time for seniors to downsize and transition to retirement living. The comprehensive end-to-end solutions alleviate the anxiety and time commitment associated with a downsizing move. Step-By-Step offers three packages; the first is to help to find the retirement home in Durham that best suits the client’s needs. Then regardless of whether the client is moving to a retirement home, a condominium or any other new residence her company will help downsize and get ready for the move and then set up the new home so it is walk-in ready. We can help every step of the way. At Step-by-Step we transition seniors with care.
