About Our Company
Senior Moves is a senior move management company owned and operated by Sue Ellen Addicott, CSA.
We offer senior relocation services within, to, and out of the Sarasota and Manatee counties area. We also offer downsizing and other moving related services to assist seniors and their families with the difficult task of moving.
What Is Senior Move Management?
Move management is an array of move services specifically designed for senior citizens and their families, to help them with relocating and moving.
Moving is stressful at any age, but can be especially overwhelming when;
- A health crisis arises
- Grieving the loss of a spouse or loved one
- The physical ability to pack or arrange to move is limited or restricted
- Family or friends are out of state and unable to assist with moving
- A family needs to prepare a parent’s home for sale after their passing
For nearly a decade, Sue Ellen Addicott of Senior Moves has stayed focused on seniors and their specific issues, and remains an educator in the Sarasota, Florida community to provide seniors with information that may be otherwise unavailable.
Senior Moves is not a moving company, but rather a transition service, providing emotional support, education and the physical services of downsizing, packing and preparing the home for sale, setting up a home upon move-in day; and overseeing the move so that the process is done without undue stress for the client.
The staff at Senior Moves cares about the client, not just about getting them moved. We treat each client as we would want our own family members treated.
Ready To Move?
Senior Moves will help.

How Senior Moves…Got Moving
In 1998, Sue Ellen Addicott retired from her Washington, D.C. job as a conference director and moved to Sarasota with her jazz musician husband. She learned to play bridge, she did volunteer work, but she felt something was missing.
“It was at that time that I remember what I experienced and witnessed firsthand, with my own parents, the emotions that people experience with the process of downsizing and moving into a retirement community. A great deal of care and attention is needed during this time.
That’s when I realized I can help and be of service, beyond what was available to me and my siblings at the time. I wanted to use the skills and educational background I had and apply that to helping others going through the same thing. I didn’t need to start the company, my husband and I were retired and comfortable…it was more than that. I could see that there was a need to not only provide these services, but educate the community.”
So in 2007, Sue Ellen started Senior Moves to help the many older people in the Sarasota region, especially those without children here, to downsize, organize, help prepare their home for sale and move. Whether that be into a private home with friends or a family member, an independent living community, or another home situation.
The company is all about helping people make move transitions more easily.
