Moving & Travel

Organizations that assist with moving to a new home and/or facilitating travel.


Our Resource Directory for LGBTQ older adults aims to help people looking for LGBTQ–welcoming services for themselves, a loved one or a client.  The Directory is not meant to endorse or guarantee the sensitivity of any provider. However, we do indicate which organizations and providers report having non-discrimination policies that specifically include sexual orientation (SO) and/or gender identity (GI). The Generations Aging with Pride logo  is indicated next to providers that have had one or more staff members attend our evidence-based training.

Summary:  Eldercare Consulting assists families and friends dealing with the challenges of an aging or ill loved one.  We work together to assess the concerns, develop a strategy and then work to solve them in a manner that allows the loved ones to be safe, happy and healthy.   Common issues we assist with include in-home care, transportation and advocacy to doctor appointments, communication with needed parties, errands, referrals to other professionals (doctors, lawyers, financial planners, repair staff…), transition to new housing, end of life issues and so much more.   
We understand the unique challenges associated within the LGBT community and are actively fighting for better awareness and services.

 

* We come to you! We recognize that your time is precious and travel may be difficult. We come to your home, office, or local coffee shop to best serve you.
