The mission of Second Act Transition Services, L3C is to provide older adults and their families with help in the physical and emotional aspects of downsizing, relocating to a new home and/or aging in place. At Second Act, we recognize that moving seniors is much more than packing boxes or decluttering and cleaning out a home. It is also about sorting through a lifetime of memories that these possessions hold. We are committed to performing the meaningful work of assisting a person to move or age in place with a lifetime of memories in a compassionate way. Second Act Transition Services helps seniors re-create their living space in a smaller and/or less cluttered environment, so they can better play out the second act of their lives.
