For anyone at any stage in life, the process of a move can be one of the most stressful things ever experienced. However, for seniors, especially those who have health issues, are downsizing, or are moving to a new care facility, the burden of a move becomes all the more difficult.
That’s where clients of An Angel for Sonny can breathe a sigh of relief.
Founder Amy Lee guides clients through the move process from start to finish—preparing for the move, overseeing moving day, and even setting up the new home.
Amy started An Angel for Sonny in 2015 after working in private care management and senior advocacy for ten years.
In the care management realm, Amy’s first client was an older gentleman named Sonny; he was the first client she helped with a move, and that’s what planted the seed for the move management business. “You’re an angel for Sonny,” Sonny’s wife—and many others—used to tell her. Honoring his memory and paying tribute to the lasting impact he had on Amy’s life was important to her. Sonny’s wife and daughters were beyond touched when she asked to honor his name through her new business.
What An Angel for Sonny Does
If a client has lived in a home for a long time, there may be a good deal of decluttering work that’s needed. An Angel for Sonny gently assists clients through ways to reorganize what they own while still holding on to important mementos. One example: A client who has many love letters from the past may choose to keep only a select few. Those letters can be copied and bound them together as a treasured memory. "I listen for the items most meaningful to my client and then find a way to preserve the story behind it,” Amy says. The process of going through what you own to get ready for a move can be stressful, Amy says. However, clients also say that it feels cathartic to choose what’s important to them going forward and letting go of the rest.
An Angel for Sonny provides complimentary, in-home consultations to determine what services will best support their client through the process of moving. A personalized move plan is developed with services ranging from floor planning, packing and unpacking, and setting up the new home, just to name a few. Leaving clients with a sigh of relief and peace of mind is always the goal when someone becomes a client of An Angel for Sonny.
An Angel for Sonny works with clients in southern Hillsborough County and in Manatee and Sarasota Counties. An Angel for Sonny also can work with clients who are not seniors but who want help with move management. Amy’s business is a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers.
