In Your Space Consulting owner earns national designation
In Your Space Consulting owner Barbara Kult recently earned a National Association of Senior Move Managers home specialist designation during the association’s 2016 annual conference in San Antonio, Texas.
As part of the association’s Aging in Place initiative, Kult earned the NASMM@Home specialist designation, one association leaders say enables those professionals to assist aging seniors who opt to stay in their home, according to an In Your Space Consulting news release.
“Extensive research indicates future generations of older adults, including some of the population we currently serve, are less inclined to move to senior living communities in later life than the World War II/Depression era generation,” said Mary Kay Buysse, NASMM’s Executive Director, in the news release. “NASMM members who earn the NASMM@HOME Specialist designation can now effectively assist clients who need to move, as well as those who prefer to remain in their homes.”
“Moving may not be the best decision for an older adult or aging family member right now — due to personal choice, financial considerations, etc. But they may still desire a change,” Kult said in the news release. “Later in life, our homes can often become cluttered with our ‘stuff,’ and it’s natural to be overwhelmed by the daunting prospect of downsizing, de-cluttering, organizing and discarding. As a NASMM@HOME Specialist, I can help older adults adapt their home for who they are now!”
