For Care Homes and Retirement Communities
Many elderly people who wish to move to a Retirement Community or who need the care and support of a Care or Nursing Home find it a great challenge to make the decisions and do all that is necessary to make the move successfully. Even when they know that this is the right thing for them, the whole idea can be overwhelming and it’s quite natural for there to be resistance. This is particularly true for those ageing alone or with families living at a distance.
TimeFinders provides an independent voice of reason, encouraging and supporting our clients to make and carry through the decisions that are right for them. Our services make it possible for potential residents to move at the time of their choosing and to ensure that their room or apartment is appropriately furnished with their favourite belongings. By minimizing the stress of moving, either from home or straight from hospital, we expedite the process and enable your new residents to settle in more quickly with noticeable benefits to their physical and mental well-being.
For those residents who have already moved, the business of selling their home and dispersing their belongings is often beyond them and this results in emotional and financial distress. Our Downsizing and Managed Property Sale Services have proved of enormous help.
These services are entirely client-funded with no cost to Homes or Communities. We offer all potential clients free initial consultations and are very happy to discuss our proposals with their family and legal and financial advisers.
We are also happy to give informal, informative presentations to your residents and potential residents.
“Alison and Helen of TimeFinders have worked with several of our prospective residents since we opened in December 2014 and have made the difficult process of choosing and moving into a care home so much easier. In fact, I would say that some of these residents may have not made the move at all if it weren’t for the constant support of the TimeFinders Team! I have heard a few prospective residents say that they really want to move into a care home, but are put off by the thought of clearing and selling their own home – one elderly lady told me ‘if I could go to bed at home one night and wake up the next day in your Care home with all my precious things around me, I’d be happy!’ I told her we couldn’t quite do that, but TimeFinders were the next best thing. She met with Alison and Helen who took all the worries away from her, working out what she wanted to bring and what needed to be disposed of. They liaised with the estate agents, solicitors and ourselves so the whole process went smoothly. I have no hesitation in recommending TimeFinders to anyone considering downsizing. They are friendly and professional, treat their clients with dignity and respect and will always go the extra mile.”

“TimeFinders have been a huge support to some of our residents when making the difficult decision to downsize. The overwhelming stress is taken away by Alison and her team as they deal with the whole house sale and moving process, from packing up boxes to sorting removals. With a caring and compassionate approach, Alison took the time to understand what the person wanted and how they would like their new home with us to look. She was supportive and understanding in what can be an emotional journey for someone to leave their home after so many years and all of the worries were taken away. We would have no hesitation in recommending TimeFinders and the excellent service continues even after the resident had joined us as Alison still visited to ensure all was ok.”
Wendy Westbury, Senior Client Liaison Manager, Signature Moorlands Lodge Nursing Home
“Alison and TimeFinders offer a bespoke service, which is impressively well organized, efficient and of high quality. Her natural calm and sympathetic manner puts all clients at ease, and no issue is too small for Alison to help with. TimeFinders is now working with two families at our home and I would certainly TimeFinders to anyone who is looking to downsize.”
