LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has partnered with the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), the leading membership organization for Senior Move Managers®, to connect clients with local Senior Move Managers. NorthStar Moving has been named a NASMM Local Connect Partner and is a preferred vendor. The new partnership ensures NorthStar Moving's senior clients are given the expert care needed to facilitate the physical and emotional aspects of relocation required by some older adults.

"Making a major move at any age is difficult and stressful, add the intricacies of moving later in life and it is even more complex," said NASMM Associate Executive Director Jennifer Pickett. "Managing the stress of relocating older adults is the hallmark of our association and we are pleased to welcome NorthStar Moving as a partner who understands the unique needs of a senior's move. Our members represent the most qualified and capable Senior Move Managers. They successfully manage the move and any emotional trauma that comes with transition. We help older adults and their families through the downsizing and relocation process, making the move from their home to their new residence stress-free."

This unique partnership provides seniors and their families with a simple way to find vetted Senior Move Management professionals in their area through NASMM's comprehensive searchable listings. NASMM's Senior Move Managers® have backgrounds in gerontology, social work, health care, nursing and psychology, while others come to NASMM from the corporate world of project management, technology, legal services, accounting or marketing. They have significant expertise in resources and approaches that save money, reduce stress and produce quality results. 

"Moving a parent comes with unique challenges and emotions, which I have directly experienced," said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder & Chief of Organized Living Laura McHolm. "Not only is there the task of downsizing a home that has been lived in for decades, there are deep emotions that come with saying goodbye to a lifetime of belongings and a well-loved home full of treasured moments. It is not easy boxing up memories and starting a new lifestyle in a new, smaller home. That's why we believe it is critical that we partner with the Senior Move Management experts at NASMM to care for our senior clients. By instantly finding a Senior Move Manager you can trust, you or your loved one's life-changing experience of downsizing will be mapped out for you and the road will be a much smoother one."
