About Caring Transitions of Coastal Maine

Caring Transitions of Coastal Maine is the Professional Solution for relocation services including downsizing, decluttering, & estate sales for both full and partial liquidations.

When you’re facing a life transition – whether you’re moving into a better living situation or clearing an entire estate – the process can feel truly overwhelming. But when you work with Caring Transitions, it’s easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m Helen Johnson and I own this local business with my husband, Bob. We understand the challenges you’re facing. We’ve lost loved ones and had to work through settling estates. It’s a difficult and emotional life experience, but it’s something you don’t have to do alone. Caring Transitions is here to help.

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. All of 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. We will come in, help you create a plan that suits your needs and work with you to meet your goals. We will treat you fairly and help you work through your transitions, no matter how large or how small.

Prior to opening Caring Transitions of Coastal Maine, I had a long career in bank management and Bob, a volunteer pilot for the Civil Air Patrol, retired from a career in retail management. My position at the bank was eliminated and it gave me an opportunity to think about what I really wanted to do. I approached Bob about opening our own business after deciding it was time to move on from the world of banking. The answer was not banking. My passion has always really been helping people, especially seniors, so owning our own Caring Transitions seemed like a perfect fit.

At Caring Transitions, we are looking out for your best interests and we’ll work with you to help you through this transition. Change is hard, but it’s something we are all faced with at some point and we don’t have to do it alone. Contact us today and let’s talk about how Caring Transitions can help.
