The National Association of Senior Move Managers welcomes Sharron Mitchell, Easy Senior Moves, LLC as its newest member.

“On behalf of NASMM, I am pleased to welcome Sharron Mitchell, Easy Senior Moves, LLC to NASMM’s growing family of premier senior move management providers,” said Mary Kay Buysse, NASMM’s executive director.

According to Sharron Mitchell, Senior Move manager and owner of ESM, “Easy Senior Moves, LLC will began serving area clients in January, 2014.  A home-based business located in Ringgold serves clients in Catoosa County, the surrounding North Georgia area and Greater Chattanooga.  We work with older adults and children of older adults who are downsizing, moving to a smaller home, an assisted living or other residential facility. Our customized services offer assistance from selecting a new home, to move in and set up of new home and everything in between. Our goal is to walk with our clients on their transitional journey from beginning to end.” 

“Through our membership with NASMM, we have access to support and resources which support our commitment to providing client-centered senior move services with compassion and integrity,” said Ms. Mitchell. “I look forward to working with area residents and senior resident facility management to offer these needed services. I also look forward to working with NASMM to build a better industry for us all.” 

The National Association of Senior Move Managers is a not-for-profit, professional association of organizations dedicated to assisting older adults and families with the physical and emotional demands of downsizing, relocating, or modifying their homes. The senior move industry is relatively new, but the challenge of transitioning an older adult is not. As the only professional association in the country devoted to helping the rapidly increasing 55+ population with middle and later life transition issues, NASMM members are committed to maximizing the dignity and autonomy of all older adults.
