When Diane Blum left her corporate banking career, she knew she wanted to work for herself in a way that would make a positive impact on people in her community.

In that focus, she has opened a new business with her son, Josh Blum, and sister, Denise Komoroski: Caring Transitions of the Cuyahoga and Chagrin Valley.

Caring Transitions manages senior relocations, as well as downsizing and estate liquidations. In addition to organizing, packing, de-cluttering, moving and resettling, Caring Transitions handles estate sales, liquidations and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions of the Cuyahoga and Chagrin Valley serves Twinsburg, Aurora, Chagrin Falls, Bainbridge, Huntington Valley, Solon, Gates Mills, Novelty, South Russell, Russell Township, Hudson, Richfield, Brecksville, Hinckley, Fairlawn, Bath, Montrose, Peninsula, Cuyahoga Falls and Medina County.

"Denise, Josh and I have all had personal experience with moving my parents," Blum said. "It wasn't just hard work; it was also extremely emotional and stressful. Then my husband and his brother flew to Florida to move their mom and they just didn't know what to do -- they ended up trashing so much of her stuff. Both of those situations could have been much better with professional help. At Caring Transitions, that's what we do."

Caring Transitions' services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need -- whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place.

"At Caring Transitions, our professional services offer a true peace of mind," Blum said. "When you work with us, you'll know that we are here to support you through every phase of the project and to take the worry away. Moving, relocating and an clearing estate is stressful you don't have to do it alone."
