Life is messy and you can’t make perfect plans for every transition. I’m Mike Ivan and I own this local chapter of Caring Transitions and will be running the business with the help of my wife Liz. I opened this business because I wanted to help you and your loved ones get to the next chapter of your lives as smoothly and stress-free as possible.
Whether your situation is planned or unexpected, Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. We start off with a free in-home consultation to understand the goals of the family and create a custom solution to meet your goals and timelines. All of our services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place.
My mom passed away a while back and, when my dad fell ill, my family and I did all his transitioning on our own. Even with the help from my brother and sisters, it was incredibly stressful to complete the move and clear the house while making sure that Dad was safe and comfortable in his new surroundings. The entire process took us months to complete. We needed Caring Transitions – we just didn’t realize the service existed. I’m hoping, by opening this business here in Cleveland, I can help other families ease their way through these types of stressful situations. By letting us take care of these details, you can take care of your loved one.
I really want to be able to help people. We all have an emotional attachment to our stuff and sometimes it makes all the difference to bring in a third party to help you sort through everything, decide what you really want to keep and make decisions about what to do with everything else. Bringing in an outside person with the expertise we have at Caring Transitions to help guide you through this transition can make all the difference and, with our customized plans, we can be as involved or not involved as you’d like.
Liz and I have a daughter, Sarah, and a son, Chris. Our family is actively involved in with a non-profit parent child organization at the local, regional and national levels. We are also looking forward to getting more involved in the community through Caring Transitions. Contact us today and let’s talk about how our family can help your family start the next chapter of your lives.
