Transition Services

Dovetail has partnered with the industry’s top providers to bring our mature clients, and their families, the best transition options around. Whether you need one, or all our services, we will streamline the process by providing one point of contact to the consumer. At Dovetail Companies, we will coordinate with each provider, managing the process every step of the way to provide you with peace of mind during a stressful time in your life.

Care Options Assistance

With an ever-growing list of options to choose from, it is imperative to gain a deep understanding of the differences among them and what works best for your unique needs both short and long term. At Dovetail Companies, we are Senior Living experts. We have guided thousands of families through this process to ensure an informed decision was made.

Family Mediation

A process in which a mediator, an impartial third party, facilitates the resolution of family disputes by promoting the participants’ voluntary agreement.

Move Management

Moving made easy. With the help of a Senior Move Manager®, a professional who specialized in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/or aging in place, you can transition to your new home without worrying about the logistics and coordination. Senior Move Managers® will assist with some or all the following: develop and plan for the move, organize, sort and downsize, prepare custom floor plans, arrange and supervise movers – and unpack and organize your belongings in your new home.

Financial Planning Services

A Certified Financial Planner (CFP)® brings the knowledge and expertise to help construct personalized financial plans to achieve the financial goals of the mature client. Whether you have long-time investments, a 401k or need the equity from the sale of your home to afford your next step, a financial planner can determine the best plan for you. At Dovetail Companies, we are happy to recommend a CFP® based on your individual needs to help support your future.

Estate Sales

Put money back in your pocket. Much more than a typical garage sale, an estate sale is an opportunity for you to liquidate the belongings of your home or estate without the planning and manpower on your end. An Estate Sale can be coordinated in the home or through online estate sale platforms. Options may vary based on the volume and value of items to be sold.

Clean-Out Services

Clean-out made easy. Our providers make cleaning out the attic, basement, garage or home as simple and painless as possible. A team of experts will come in and sort through the contents of your home that are being discarded bringing the appropriate items to charities for donations or discarding them on your behalf.  Clean-outs can be done in as quickly as one day or overtime.

Art & Antique Appraisals

If you are thinking about liquidating some of your art or antique collections or are into looking appraisals for insurance purposes, art & antique appraisals are the first step to finding out the actual value of your pieces. An art and/or antique appraisal is a legal document that is used most often when a piece has a high value, is rare, or needs to be insured (coin collections, jewelry, art, furniture, etc.). An appraisal can be used for tax or insurance purposes or in estate planning and wills. At Dovetail, we work with the finest antique dealers/collectors in the area.

Hoarding Resources

At times, the clean-up or clean-out of a home is a complex job that cannot be completed by one person. At Dovetail Companies, we partner with industry-leading experts who understand the complexities of hoarding and who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves to get the job done. Whether it is hiring an organizer, coordinating a full clean-out, or connecting our clients to psychiatric support professionals (often needed in hoarding situations), we will coordinate all services needed on behalf of our clients.

Care Management

The role of an Aging Life Care professional, also known as a geriatric care manager, is a client-centered approach to care for older adults and others facing health challenges. Aging Life Care Professionals guide families to ensure quality care and reduce stress on the caregiver. These professionals can handle a wide range of tasks and often have a clinical background to provide assessments and monitoring, planning, education, advocacy, and family caregiver coaching.

Estate Planning/Elder Law

Elder Law is a specialized area of legal practice that covers estate planning, wills, trusts, long-term care planning, social security, retirement benefits, protection against elder abuse, guardianship and more. At Dovetail, we connect you with some of the industry’s best to ensure that you have a plan and are well protected in your later years of life.

Short-Term Bridge Loans

Facing a turning point or transition and you’re not sure how to pay for it? Are you feeling overwhelmed by the process? Have other resources turned you down? Do you own a home? We are here to help!

Finances may be the largest hurdle a family faces when dealing with a crisis or transition from home. Dovetail Financial, LLC provides short term bridge loans for seniors in transition, who may need to use the equity in their home to afford their next step, while they wait for the home to sell. The current resources available can be costly, time-consuming or not available when a senior may need it most.
