How to Become a Senior Relocation Specialist & Own Your Own Business

Are you Interested in helping seniors relocate, but don’t know where to start learning how to become a senior relocation specialist? Here’s what it takes to get certified and launch your own successful business in the thriving senior care industry.


Almost 11,000 baby boomers are hitting retirement age every day in the United States. Americans, aged 85 and above, comprise the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population. Now, more than ever, senior moving services are needed for a variety of reasons.

Today, many families are geographically dispersed, and adult children are often unable to assist in their aging parents' moving process due to distance, career, or family obligations. Many seniors have no children or their children are now older adults themselves. If an illness or death precipitates a move, the family is likely already emotionally and physically drained, making the responsibilities connected to relocation that much more difficult to carry. Senior relocation specialists have emerged to expertly shoulder the burden and help facilitate these important transitions for everyone involved. 

Most older adults faced with a move haven’t done so in decades, so the need to downsize and sometimes sell precious belongings is considerable. The organizational and physical tasks associated with planning and implementing such a complex move can be overwhelming for the entire family. The professional advice and assistance provided by experienced, insured, caring experts can be invaluable, relieving the burden of rightsizing or relocating that can often feel insurmountable. 


Senior relocation specialists minimize the chaos and stress associated with moving by addressing and streamlining all aspects of the moving process. They are responsible for creating and executing a seamless action plan customized to the client's wishes and needs.

Senior relocation specialists are focused on taking the work and worry out of the moving process for older adults and their families. With our gentle and expert guidance, individuals are able to avoid the physical, emotional, and financial strain that can often be associated with a move, and instead, look forward to settling comfortably into their new living arrangement. 

Many people may get into the relocation business, but senior relocation specialists are a special breed that are focused on the overall happiness and lifestyle of their customers and their families.
