Steve and Tamara Acosta

 Whether you’re helping an older loved one downsize or you’re clearing the home of someone who has passed, you’re dealing with a stressful and emotionally-overwhelming situation. I’m Steve Acosta and my wife, Tamara Acosta, and I own Caring Transitions of Cary. We understand what you’re going through because we’ve been in your shoes.

 Tamara and her three sisters moved their parents into assisted living and then, a year later when they passed away, our family had to clear out the apartment and the house. We were 2,000 miles away trying to deal with that and, even with family helping, it was emotional and expensive. I stepped into a leadership role to keep everyone on track and help make the decisions that needed to be made, but Tamara and I know we made mistakes. It would have been nice to know about Caring Transitions and to have brought in professionals to help us through that period of our lives.

 Situations like that are just overwhelming. Even if you’re physically able to handle the work on your own, it can make a huge difference to bring in someone who can help you take a step back and manage the process. We’re hoping we can be that resource for families in our area when they are faced with those kinds of transitions.

 At Caring Transitions, our specially-trained team can handle organizing, packing, de-cluttering, moving, resettling, in-person and online estate sales, liquidations, and preparing homes for market. We specialize in managing senior relocations, but the services are also perfect for busy families and individuals in need of assistance. We are CRTS certified and insured and all employees have been background checked.

 We live with our four rescues – three dogs and a cat.  Tamara has had a varied career – from direct care to social services to pet grooming – but she has always been drawn to work that gets her out in the community. I’m a U.S. Navy veteran (I served on the U.S.S. Constitution) and I spent most of my career in the Information Technology industry.

 As I was thinking about my next challenge, I started cataloging not only the things I was good at, but the things that brought me joy and fulfillment. Everything on my list of what made me happy was about helping people and making a difference – whether it was changing a tire for someone on the side of the road or helping Tamara and her sisters clear out their parents’ house. That’s when I realized, whatever we were going to do, we wanted it to make a difference for people. When we found Caring Transitions, we realized it would be a perfect fit for us and for this community. We’re looking forward to helping you through what can sometimes be one of the most challenging times in our lives.
