We help seniors downsize with dignity
As of August 2020, we started providing our full complement of services again. As of March 2021, we have reinforced our existing safety measures to ensure everyones protection to the best of our ability. We believe in Stay Safe and Stay Home whenever possible.
While some measures may result in additional steps throughout the day, such as entering a retirement community, I am proud of how Canadians have stepped up and are working together to attempt to keep this pandemic in check. I encourage everyone to continue to be respectful of these steps - even when they may seem extreme, they are in place for the right reasons.
As of July 2020 (and continued into spring 2021), we began working in situations where our clients had already moved into their chosen retirement/LTC location and we were working in their empty home. Therefore there was no threat to our clients. We continue to work with only one client per day to reduce the opportunity of spread as best we can.
We applaud our front line workers - and as much as I would like HSHT to
be considered an essential service, I am also grateful that we are not. Now that additional safety measures are in place, I believe staff and clients are safe from transporting or transferring viral threats.

What are the Benefits of using senior move managers (SMM) or certified relocation and transition specialist (CRTS)?
As a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers. www.NASMM.com and Move Seniors www.moveseniors.com, we understand the challenges faced by seniors needing to downsize. The objective is not just to get moved. It is to select treasures to keep, revisit memories and enjoy this journey in life too. Although there are no formal licenses required to help seniors downsize, Home Suite Home Transitions staff take their responsibility seriously.
Delighting Seniors in Eastern Ontario
I was completely overwhelmed knowing I was moving out of our 4 bedroom home into a tiny apartment. I would lay awake at night wondering what to do. All of a sudden, at 5 am, Patti`s voice came over the radio advertising Home Suite Home Transitions and answering my prayers! What a relief and blessing Patti and her team have been. Thank you for making my move so stress free and fun!!! Yes, it was fun!
