Certification Time! Jill Kearney and Sharon Waddell participated in a training program focused on serving our "Boomer and Beyond" clients, who intend to stay in their own homes as they age. Both team members were awarded the "NASMM@Home Specialist"-Certificate and returned full of new ideas on assessing, redesigning and modifying homes for long-term usefulness.
This intensive training took place in St. Antonio, Texas, during the annual NASMM conference (National Association of Senior Move Managers.) Congratulations Jill and Sharon
Senior Homes by Design was featured in the March 2016 edition of Lehigh Valley Style magazine!
Building on our years of proven success in Senior Move Management, we are now formalizing our offerings of Aging-in-Place services. We're utilizing our full capacity of Interior Design and Redesign talents, Real Estate Staging, and Project Management - and the high quality contractors we partner with to execute home modifications.
The common denominator for Senior Homes by Design and Senior Moves by Design? A deep appreciation for and honoring of our senior clients and their families. What we do is as much a ministry as a business - and we specialize in providing a joyful experience for our clients.

Jill Kearney is elected to the board of directors at the National Association for Senior Move Managers!
Downsizing, upsizing and rightsizing -- as we progress through life we move to comfortable homes suitable for each stage of life. With 10,000 boomers turning 65 every day the demand for senior move managers grows along with the accumulation of years and personal effects. Fortunately, there is a national organization that provides training, accreditation and ethical practices to an industry devoted to helping seniors move and transition between stages of life. The National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) now has Lehigh Valley representation on its Board of Directors.
Lower Macungie businesswoman Jill Kearney has been elected to a two-year term July, 2015-2017. “For me it’s a privilege to continue to grow professionally and innovate the senior move industry as well as to give back and train other professionals within NASMM,” says Kearney.
Kearney, who is certified in both Senior Move Management and Real Estate Staging, founded her firm Senior Moves By Design in 2009.
Kearney is one of nine members of NASMM’s Board. The Illinois-based organization is the only professional organization for Senior Move Managers. They are recognized for innovative programs and expertise related to senior move management, transition and relocation issues affecting older adults.
