About Caring Transitions of Sioux Falls

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




I’m Mary Main and I own Caring Transitions of Sioux Falls with my husband, Dan. Prior to opening Caring Transitions, Dan and I realized we had reached a point where it was time to retire from my corporate career, sell the business we owned, downsize out of our house that was too big and find our next opportunity. Also, during this time, I experienced the real-life challenges of elderly relatives needing to make up-ending changes in their lives. There are so many resources today to help seniors and their families, but it does take research, persistence and attentiveness to find the right support and solutions. In crisis situations, having the time to find those solutions adds to the stress and often is heartbreaking for the family. The experiences of my 86-year-old dad, 85-year-old cousin and 90-year-old aunt pointed me to Caring Transitions and the services we can provide.

 

I understand the kinds of stresses many of my clients are facing. After my 90-year-old aunt was displaced by a condo fire on New Year’s Eve in 2016, she moved three times in six months. Luckily the fire was not in her unit, but it did destroy the building and the renovations that followed made her a nomad for the next year. She was moved to first a hotel, then temporary housing and finally to independent living. This is where I first learned about Caring Transitions. As we discovered, they provided end to end services ranging from downsizing, moving, resettlement and most importantly disposal and liquidation of the remaining estate. My aunt is feisty and a woman who knows her own mind, but she was overwhelmed by the uncertainty of her future. Caring Transitions gave her back her piece of mind and she continues to thrive in her new home.

 

Before we opened Caring Transitions here in Sioux Falls, I spent six months carefully studying and shadowing Caring Transitions in the Colorado market. I had planned to buy an existing franchise as the owner retired but, at some point, as I was managing my own downsizing, liquidation and estate sale, it occurred to me that I could go and live anywhere. My family, a sister with health issues, and a desire to live in a smaller town, led me to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. My husband and I have come full circle and come back to our roots here in South Dakota.

 

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families clearing out the home of a loved one who has moved into assisted care or 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.
