The Idea

Creating a Senior Move Transition Process

Margo Salnek, founder and CEO of Move Seniors Lovingly, applied her 25 years of experience writing and producing corporate shows for Fortune 500 Companies to create a senior move transition process that downsizes seniors from their present home to a new home with a completed, fully functional suite.

The process is meticulous in detail and answers every need of the transition in a timely, cost-efficient manner and ……it works like a gem!

Honouring our Fathers and our Mothers

Many of my best friends were seniors. Maria, 89, was a published author and songwriter. Jim, 82, was a top-gun naval pilot in the Korean War.  Audrey, 88, was a competitive tennis player. Eleanor, 92, arranged her own 90th birthday party inviting guests from all over Canada.

My mother Frances, 93, was a nurse and artist (see photo). My Auntie Marg was the General Manager of an international hair products company. My mother-in-law Verna, worked along side her husband to build a successful steel company in the early fifties. All of them were people of tremendous strength and fortitude! During their most vulnerable times, I witnessed their indestructible spirit. Their lives taught me patience and courage and strengthened my faith. I am blessed that they were once a part of my life and I miss them dearly.

Throughout the years, my husband Brian and I were volunteers for “The Out of The Cold Program”, a non-denominational charity run by the churches to provide meals for the homeless during the winter months. During that time, we founded “The Out of The Cold Foundation” and for seven years produced “The Teddy Bear Affair”, the annual fundraising gala for The Children’s Aid Foundation.

In 2005, after a 20-year career as a published songwriter/singer in the music industry and producer of corporate shows for Fortune 500 companies, my book, “Coach Houses of Toronto,” The Boston Mills Press/Firefly was released. I could now add published author to my resume. That is when I got the idea!

I had moved my mother-in-law, mother and aunt managing details from the estate, including sale of the home, sale and disposal of unwanted items, choosing a residence, move, design and set-up of their new homes. As a former producer, I was used to working with impossible deadlines and managing a team under stressful conditions.

Creating Move Seniors Lovingly in 2005 was a natural to me. It would be a service-based company for seniors with a move transition process drawn from my many years of producing.

In 2008, my husband Brian Salnek joined the company. His years of experience in office furnishings, logistics and architectural and interior design were a perfect fit to enhance the quality of our services.

Today, Move Seniors Lovingly is a Canadian leader in Senior Move Transition. I believe we “Wrote the Book” on this new industry, bringing together our years of experience and talent to service our clients.

Our mission is to “Honour our Fathers and our Mothers”. We are wholeheartedly committed to providing superior service to our clients resulting in a timely, cost-efficient transition with a completed fully functional suite.

I’m proud to say that over the past fifteen years, Move Seniors Lovingly has provided move transition services for seniors, empty nesters and their families, real estate professionals and many of the largest, national providers across Long Term Care, Assisted Living, Retirement Homes, In-Home Healthcare and Referral Companies.
