Relocation Specialists Beyond the Box Team With Nurse to Help Facilitate Senior Moves
Date:11/11/2009

Combining nursing skills, geriatric knowledge, relocation management, and design services, Ms. McKenna and the Beyond the Box team can assist seniors and their loved ones with the emotional and physical challenges of relocation or “aging in place.

(PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- The Washington, DC based relocation and design firm, Beyond the Box, is pleased to announce its new association with Elise McKenna, RN, MPH, a highly respected senior living consultant, to expand the company’s Senior Move Management services. Already a premier provider of relocation services for active seniors transitioning from the family home into retirement and independent living communities, Beyond the Box will extend its services to seniors moving into assisted living arrangements.

The founder and partner of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Consulting Group (HPDP Consulting), Ms. McKenna specializes in aging, geriatric, palliative, and ambulatory care issues. Her clients include the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University, Duke University Institute for Care at the End of Life and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine Center for Advanced Palliative Care. She has worked as a clinical instructor at the Georgetown University School of Nursing and an instructor at the University of Kansas and has published several pieces on palliative care and issues facing the elderly.

Combining nursing skills, geriatric knowledge, relocation management, and design services, Ms. McKenna and the Beyond the Box team can assist seniors and their loved ones with the emotional and physical challenges of relocation or “aging in place.” McKenna’s unique skill set allows her to professionally assess and recommend the best residential option for a family member; if assisted living is the best solution, Ms. McKenna will work with and advise families in the selection of an appropriate facility, personally accompanying them on visits to recommended residences. Whether the client remains at home, moves, or transitions to assisted living, Beyond the Box creates a senior-sensitive design plan for furniture and household items that includes “right-sizing” clients’ living arrangements and editing their possessions. The company’s top notch designers oversees the unpacking of belongings and fully set up the new or re-designed living space, including kitchens, closets, and bathrooms. Any unwanted items can them be donated through the company’s area charitable partners to local, community based organizations with the resulting tax benefit going directly to the senior and his or her family. CEO Suzanne Windle observes, “Senior moves are an important facet of our business. With her medical and geriatric expertise, Elise McKenna rounds out our services in a warm and wonderful way, enabling us to offer a full realm of services well beyond what other senior move managers can provide. Older adults trust her immediately. Area residential administrators know her by her years of experience and are as thrilled as we are to have her on board.”

Beyond the Box strives to take a senior’s new home from “move-in” to “live-in” condition, with minimal disruption and stress. The company also helps family members incorporate heirlooms and other inherited treasures into their own established decorating scheme. Elizabeth Haselkorn, a Washington-area fitness expert and personal trainer enthused about her experience with the firm. "Anyone who has been through the life passage of moving an aging parent knows how stressful and exhausting it can be. Beyond the Box's assistance went far beyond my dad's move. One of the most valuable services was the integration of my father’s belongings into my own household, which has a very different sense of design and décor.”

Ms. McKenna is a member of the American Association of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. Beyond the Box is a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM). For more information, contact Suzanne Windle: 202-625-0268. www.beyondrelocation.com.
