Are you wondering what to do with all your “stuff”? Does the thought of downsizing your belongings send chills down your spine?
Sometimes the home you live in is no longer the home you need. And while many people are reluctant about the idea of downsizing, it doesn’t mean that it will be a step backwards. Downsizing or, as we prefer to call it, rightsizing, is a way to once again find a balance between what it is that you want and need in a home and what you don’t.
Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor will offer a free “Rightsizing Workshop” August 25 with Rightsize Moving Solutions owner Kirsten Awe, a professional organizer.
Most seniors no longer require multiple bedroom houses, aren’t able to keep up with all the maintenance required in a large house, and are putting more money into a home than necessary. So it is important to be aware of all your rightsizing home options and what each one can offer you.
Awe has a passion for helping others get their homes organized and their lives simplified, especially seniors. She is a certified senior move manager, a certified relocation and transition specialist and a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers, where she holds a “Circle of Service Designation.”
The “Rightsizing Workshop” will begin at 2 p.m. at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor, 1711 N. Fourth St. The presentation is free, and refreshments will be served.
RSVP to Marketing Director Sean Page at 620-442-8700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The talk is part of Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask series, a free, ongoing lifelong learning program featuring information from local and regional experts on topics of interest to older adults and their families.
