The Palm Beach Post, Fla.

Lauren Light is the founder and president of Next Step Senior Relocation, a company offering consulting and concierge services to seniors and their families looking to downsize to smaller homes or move to assisted living facilities.

Light launched the company this summer, after going through the difficult task of moving her grandmother from a three-bedroom home in Broward County to an assisted living facility in Lantana.

“There is a lot that goes into downsizing,” Light said. “It is very overwhelming and emotional. After personally experiencing this with my own grandmother, as well as going through this many years ago losing my parents, I felt I would be wonderful at helping other families to do it too.”

After her grandmother’s move, Light said she was approached by friends and neighbors also looking for relocation help.

“I had a niche,” Light said. “It came natural and I just loved being around seniors. I found myself hanging around the assisted living facilities more than I was at home and it was my calling.”

Light’s company serves residents of both Broward and Palm Beach counties, and handles everything from emergency pet care to staging homes for sale, to overseeing packing, purging and donation of items. Light said she also helps decorate and setup new homes.
