Moving is among life's five most stressful ordeals. This stress is far greater for seniors who are often dealing with other challenges at the same time: a major health setback, the loss of a friend or family member, a feeling of vulnerability in their home and the heartache of having to leave it. For seniors, moving is just... harder. They can't do it alone.

Enter Cathy Haynes - Victoria's Downsizing Diva. Cathy will streamline your move and give you the fresh start you need.

If you are a senior, or the adult child of a senior who needs to move, there are compelling reasons to consider choosing Cathy.

Cathy's personal experience with moving includes three countries, two provinces and about twelve homes. Her training as a Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (CPCA), the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) combined with training in Downsizing Diva's unique methods of worry free transitions allows her to lighten your load.

In short, she can melt your mountain of stress when you’re faced with a big transition and help you or your loved one settle into a new home quickly and smoothly.

While Cathy works with a range of clients who need downsizing and move management services, she specializes in working with senior clients. Cathy chose to join the Downsizing Diva network across Canada because their values align well with her own; Divas are move organizers with care, compassion and, sometimes, comedy.

Many of her clients are adult children living far from their parents. When they need to entrust their parent's move to another, the reason they choose a Downsizing Diva is because of the Diva’s impeccable service record of over twelve years of experience helping seniors move.

In Victoria, choose the person with experience, training and a friendly, professional manner. Choose Cathy – the Diva who will make your move happen with you – not to you.

"Moving and Downsizing Solutions for Seniors in Victoria & surrounding areas!"

Everyone is talking about simplifying, organizing and downsizing. The best time to do all of this is BEFORE you move, not after you move. Here's what we're hearing...

"I want to move, but I don't know where to begin."
"What do I do with all the stuff my family and I don't want?"
"There's so much to do and so little time to get it done before Move Day!"
"Moving? Am I doing the right thing?"

Moving for seniors is often accompanied by feelings of excitement, guilt and anxiety. Just the thought of going through years of accumulated treasures, downsizing and getting organized, causes people to become... OVERWHELMED!

We'll plan and organize your move, sort and downsize your stuff and take care of all the details to reduce the work and worry for everyone involved.
