Ultimate Moves works with older adults who are considering a move from one residence to another. With so many decisions to make, it can seem overwhelming. No wonder moving ranks as one of the top two stress producers. Ultimate Moves understands the difficulties and knows how to help by offering a complete range of services to assist our clients in making this change; services that adult children would like to personally provide for their parents, but distance and lack of time make impractical. It is a welcome option to call on someone sensitive to the emotional and logistical dilemmas faced by seniors in transition.

Our objective is to work with seniors and their families to make moving a more positive experience while maintaining a little humor during the process. We can help you achieve your goals by creating a plan, following it and being proactive about taking control of your life. Ultimate Moves serves seniors throughout the entire Bay Area.
