When to ask for our help:
- You live out of state and don’t know what plumber to use for your parents
- Mom lives alone and doesn’t want to meet a repair service by herself
- Dad needs help de-cluttering to make his home safer
- You or a loved one is making the transition to a facility and needs help packing
- You or a loved one is overwhelmed with the small tasks around the home that now seem more difficult
- You want a trusted professional to help you or a loved one accomplish their in-home tasks
Ms. Lily had recently lost her husband and was living in a cluttered home by herself. The house was not only cluttered, it was also not clean after her husband had health issues that resulted in an unsanitary bathroom. Ms. Lily felt ashamed about the mess and her family was fearful Ms. Lily would fall due to the clutter.
Through our Home Repair Concierge (HRC) service, we were able to help declutter the home and bring in companies to clean the bathrooms in order to make them usable again. Through the decluttering and cleaning process, we also provided companionship for Ms. Lily when we would visit for HRC. Ms. Lily was depressed and lonely after losing her husband and this gave her an opportunity to socialize and visit with somebody that was trusted by her and her family. This part of the job was likely more important than the decluttering itself.
Unfortunately, Ms. Lily was diagnosed with cancer and passed away a few months later. She had two out of town children that were overwhelmed with handling her estate. Our real estate team worked with the children along with the estate’s executor to make sure the handling of their personal items and the home was as stress free as possible. We again brought in companies to handle the estate sale and clean the house prior to putting the home on the market. This was stress free for both the children and the executor as they didn’t have to travel. The family did not have to worry about their Mom’s estate and could focus on mourning her passing. In result, we got top dollar for the home and their family’s belongings were handled with love and care.

Rudy needed assistance transitioning to assisted living and needed proceeds from the sale of house to assist with the costs. His home had previously listed and never sold due to the home being overpriced and the pictures of the home were terrible due to the junk and clutter inside the house. Rudy was overwhelmed and felt stuck because the burden of his home was too much for him to handle with his health conditions.
LifeCare for Seniors recommended their Home Repair Concierge (HRC) service. HRC used their expertise and resources to get them connected with a referral partner that would take items from the house and sell them at an auction. They removed all items out of house and sold them, so Rudy turned a profit. They also cleaned the house once it was empty.
This allowed the Crawford & Baynes Real Estate team to get good pictures of a nice clean house. In return, they were able to quickly sell the house so he could afford his new assisted living apartment. Rudy not only felt relieved financially, he knew his assets and well-being were in good hands.
