Workshops for Seniors and their Families

Our team at Household Guardians is passionate about our desire to help two generations – seniors and their adult children as they face the tough issues of aging-in-place and making downsizing decisions.  We bring understanding to the issues, information about services, and desperately needed options to people who are just beginning this journey or who have already traveled along its path. We share our expertise and very personal experience in working with several hundred families over the years. We have delivered the message at national conventions on healthy homes, senior moving management and aging in America. We also speak locally and regionally to audiences in community centers, chambers of commerce, churches, schools and clubs.

Sample of workshops include:
