This week saw the start of one of the biggest moves undertaken by the team of NE Solutions Lifestyle Change Coordinators and Senior Move Managers.

45 residents of the Braemar Lodge Aged Care Facility in Bicton are moving to their new home in Melville this week. Named “Cooinda” it is an Aboriginal word meaning happy place, and the old Lodge residents are definitely happy about the move. And one of the main reasons is they don’t have to do any of the physical work.

We do everything.

We pack their treasures, move them and unpack them at the other end.

We keep everything together so the residents don’t have to worry about anything. Their treasures are taken care of, so when they move into their new facility it feels like they are going home – because they are.

Cooinda is a state of the art facility and the care taken by Braemar to make it feel homely while providing care for 108 of its more frail residents is second to none. Given the recent and disturbing news about cutting 1.2 billion from aged care – which was handed down by the government recently – the residents at Braemar appear to be some of the lucky ones.

So why are we doing the job?

Quite simply we are WA’s first Senior Move Managers, recognised through the National Association of Senior Move Managers ® handling every aspect of caring for our elders while they are going through lifestyle changes. When you don’t have family or a network of people to help you do the physical tasks, it can be extremely distressing and stressful.

Imagine leaving your family home of many years, knowing you can’t take everything with you because it won’t fit, and perhaps getting conflicting advice from well-meaning people, you may be tempted to not move at all – this is where we come in…we work with you!

We can plan your new space so you can make an informed decision over what you can and can’t take. We provide a personalised journey planner that provides easy to complete baby steps that will eventually get you to where you want to be.

That’s why we are different and blowing our own trumpet for just a moment, why we are passionate and good at what we do.

With the Braemar Lodge move to Cooinda – it has been all of that and a little bit more including project planning and logistics. But seeing the smiles when the job has been done, is definitely worth it.
