Making Relocating for Seniors an Easier Experience
Ready Steady Relax can help you manage all aspects of your relocation.
Moving is one of those things in life that everyone finds stressful. Seniors often have other issues, like serious health concerns, which have added burdens.
When it is time to downsize or move from the family home to a retirement village or to assisted care, the long list of both large and small jobs can be enormous. And sometimes families do not have the time to help or they live some distance away.
Ready Steady Relax is a business started by Carmel Bradstreet, a social worker who realised that seniors and their families sometimes felt overwhelmed by the prospect of packing up the house, organising services and engaging contractors to complete many of the tasks. This is on top of their day-to-day routine of appointments and activities.
Ready Steady Relax offers supportive management and practical services such as organising cleaners, packers and charities. They also attend to those items that have special significance to the client. For example, Carmel recently arranged for the NSW Machine Knitters Association to collect wools, patterns and a much loved knitting machine which the client donated. Carmel has liaised with government services and utilities to ensure each individual's needs are met.
'When my husband passed away I did not know where to start. Carmel helped me sort everything including all the paperwork. I couldn't have done it without her. It was great to be able to trust someone who cared.' Betty
In order to help the process work as smoothly as possible, Carmel offers a two-hour free assessment with you and your family. Together, the main priorities and tasks can be identified, as well as any obstacles that may be faced. No job is too small, or too big.
Following the consultation, you receive a comprehensive written quote setting out all the work to be completed and a timeframe. Once this is agreed Ready Steady Relax will maintain contact either via phone or email.
Carmel has assisted and supported members of families who are both interstate and overseas.
'I found Carmel inspired confidence that the seemingly overwhelming task of sorting, cleaning and painting could be done in a short timeframe so the property would be presented professionally for sale.' Linde
Let Ready Steady Relax help you with your relocation to ensure that your experience is both personal and professional.
