LACONIA — The Taylor Community recognizes that moving to a smaller home can seem like an impossible challenge for some people, therefore they are offering an informative session entitled "Downsizing - It's Not That Impossible" presented by Mariluz Flanders. This panel presentation and discussion will be held Friday, October 11 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Woodside Building at Taylor Community, 435 Union Ave.
Many seniors have lived in their home for years, even decades, during which time they’ve accumulated a lot of personal possessions. Paul Charlton, who works with seniors planning their move to Taylor Community, notes it can be overwhelming for many. “I talk with people who are really excited to move. Then they go home and become paralyzed when they look at all the stuff in their closets, attics, sheds and basements. That’s where the advice of senior move managers can help; they do this for a living and their help is invaluable.”
Alan Robichaud, the community development director from Granite United Way, will talk about options for where people can donate unwanted items. Current Taylor residents are also going to be on hand to share their downsizing experiences.
