NEW OLEAR BANNERAre you presently in a situation where mom and/or dad are aging and are perhaps having difficulty keeping up their home the way they used to? Or, maybe there?s a chance that their home ? especially one with multi levels ? has become a danger to their health and wellbeing.

At some point, many families will be faced with a tough decision about rightsizing an older relative?s living situation. While it can be a difficult discussion, the number one priority should always be providing a safe living arrangement. But sometimes, fear of change can get in the way.

Planning ahead is always better than facing these issues in an emergency situation, and developing a detailed plan is your best course of action. That being said, how and where do you begin the process?

Michael Olear and Presbyterian Senior Care of Western New York are proud to offer five brief video tips that can helped you get started. Those five videos ? Starting the Conversation, Making a Plan, Personal Property, Fix It Up or Sell As Is, and Starting a Checklist ? can all be found online at

Please keep in mind that while no two situations are ever alike, an experienced Realtor can help guide you through what can be a complicated process. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, please contact The Olear Team today!
