"Dear Carolyn:

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your professional services.

I would encourage anyone who is going through a family situation long-distance or local to use Caring Transitions.

The service goes beyond handling all the difficult tasks for the family. The word "Caring" in the business name is a true reflection of your personal caring, thoughtfulness and commitment to the family involved.

Thank you for assisting me and my Dad through this transition. 

Warm regards,"

 - Deborah C.



Your workers, Lisa and Jen were excellent helpers with our move.  We appreciate their willingness to extend the scope to include our move to a different garage location.  They were upbeat and enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with.

 Thank you.


- Tina & Lee E.


"Your auctions are so much fun. These are things for me, not resale, so I win some and lose some. The gals are great and do a heck of a job. You run a very nice online auction!"

- Lee F.


"My father and Dotty are very pleased with the new home and have forgotten the old home. They and I were very pleased with the service you provided. Your employees were excellent in every way.

Thank you again for the professionalism of you and your staff. The move went much better than I could have ever imagined."

- Lee


 "Hi Carolyn:

I wanted to send a note of thanks for the moving services provided by your company, Caring Transitions.  My family and I appreciated your ability to move my Mother-in law on such short notice.  A lot of care was taken to pack up her things and to deliver them safely and we truly appreciate the time and effort you and Spring put in to organize her new apartment for her.  The professionalism, thoughtfulness and respect you showed for my Mother-in-law and her belongings will not be forgotten.  If you ever need a recommendation for a new client, please give them my contact information and I will be happy to tell them how pleased we were with you and your team."

Best Regards,"

- Sharon H.



Unfortunate circumstances put me in a position where I had to empty my house to prepare for sale. I was overwhelmed with the amount of work ahead of me. I was already depressed because of the collapse of my family. 

You and your team came to my house, inventoried, catalogued, and sold the items for me. The sale covered the cost of the service and in my case provided a profit. 

 Your people were kind, very professional, and hard working. I appreciate the service you provided.              

 Thank you."

- Michael H.


"I cannot compliment enough the women working for your business!! So helpful and pleasant. I will tell any of my friends who are planning to downsize to call you!!"

- Aldine H, Messiah Lifeways


"We are relieved that it is over.  It must have been very difficult to co-ordinate all the organizations that did pick-ups.  Maybe I would not be far off if I said this must have been one of the most difficult jobs you've had.  I cannot help thinking about how the consequences for hoarding so much junk falls on other, innocent people on down the line.  I am certainly looking at our own home with new and more critical eyes.  A lot of stuff is going out.  It will be little at a time, but it's going out over the coming months. 

Thank you,"

- Carolyn H.


"Being a life-long collector, I had 25 years of accumulation in my home when I needed to move to Bethany Village for health reasons. I wasn’t prepared to be abruptly pulled from my home. I had no idea what it would entail to clean out my house. Thank God I discovered someone who knew just what to do. In a matter of months, Caring Transitions accomplished what would have taken me years to do on my own—more than I ever could have handled. Thank God for Caring Transitions. I hurt because I had to give up my life’s collections, but it had to go, I was simply postponing the inevitable and I ran out of time. Caring Transitions did for me what I put off doing until my ill health required a change. It’s a wonderful thing to know there are special people who care and can make it happen. To help eliminate the endless anxiety I had been feeling."

- James M., Bethany Village


"The caring and friendliness of your staff was outstanding! Their efforts were so greatly appreciated, especially in helping my 92-year-old mother. They helped her deal with the confusion and chaos of moving day. I can’t express how important your help and caring was to our move."

- Ellen K, Bethany Village



We wanted to thank you and your staff for everything you did to assist us in transitioning Colleen from a very, very full house into the retirement community. Everyone we interacted with was highly professional and definitely focused on customer service.  As you know, we were managing the transition from Florida so maintaining the proposed schedule was critical to minimize trips back and forth. All dates were met!

Please share this email with prospective clients – your services are invaluable!  We couldn’t have done this without you.

Thanks again,"

- Jim and Mindi


"Carolyn, we were thrilled with your service!  Jean was finally at ease on moving day thanks to your packers.  Your organization is blessed to have those angels.  Their wreath is hanging on her front door as a reminder of their care and support for her. The movers were fast and efficient.  I plan on telling my friends if they ever have to move a loved one to hire “Caring Transitions”

Thank you."

- Susan


"Thank you for your kind words and support. The past few months have been unbelievably stressful and I cannot tell you how grateful I am that Caring Transitions has a franchise in Mechanicsburg. I have no idea how we could have done everything that needed and still needs to be done.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I hope when the time comes for her transition, you experience the same miraculous timing we did. God knows this would have been unbearable had all the pieces not fallen into place the way they did..."

- Dan


"Morning Carolyn,

 I am off the phone with my mom and she sang the praises of all involved. I wanted to let you know and say thank you for helping her in this tough time.

Thanks so much for the pictures, the great job, the professionalism along with  the kindness and care with which you wrapped one of the most precious people in my life in order to make her feel comfortable. It means the world to me.

Carolyn, I've already told about 10-15 people scattered around the country about Caring Transitions and another 5 or 6 in the general area where Ellen lives. I've told everyone to use the O'Shaughnessy name when calling whether it's national or to you. I hope it generates some business for you.

Thanks for everything and I hope you and your folks stay safe and healthy.

With kind regards,"

- Kevin O'S



Lou & I just saw the website of items from my sister's house - WOW ! !

What a beautiful job you all have done! Everything looks so good that it's a challenge to not buy some of the things back. (But we'll be strong.)

We are so grateful for all the work it took and the very "user-friendly" groupings and presentation online. 

Most appreciatively,"

- Gary and Lou


"Hi, Carolyn.

I just wanted to thank you for everything going so smoothly in the clean out of my parents’ home. JDOGS was there yesterday and got all the rest of the big stuff out that didn’t fit in the dumpster!!!  Waste management was at the house today to get the bagsters, and the dumpster will be removed soon. Thanks again, and boy, does the house look empty. You will wholeheartedly be recommended by us in the future! Have a great day!!!"

- Joy M., Harrisburg


"Dear Carolyn, 

How peaceful I feel sitting in my apartment at Country Meadows, all settled, and I owe it all to you. How lucky I was to find you-organized, efficient and hard-working. But most of all, Carolyn you were never too busy to ease my high level of stress. You were patient, so kind, always optimistic and always available to help me when I needed the extra hours. Everything from start to finish showed that Caring Transitions has found the perfect President/Owner for the Mechanicsburg area. I am so thankful, I hope your company will be a huge success.


- Ruth B., Country Meadows of West Shore

P.S. I think of you and your daughter every time I see my door wreath. I love it. Another expression of your many thoughtful acts."


"You took a tremendous burden off my shoulders by taking charge of a job that I was too busy to complete myself."
- Kim S.

"You took care of everything professionally, and we felt you really cared about us and about treating (my aunt’s) things with respect. You were a lifesaver."
- Jim R.

"We appreciated all the work you did after the estate sale: cleaning up the house, finding appropriate places to donate unsold items, and overseeing disposal of things that could not be donated."
- Donna B.

"Thank you Caring Transitions, for the help you provided in my recent estate sale. Not only was it profitable, but you also made it fun!"
- Maria G.

"In a few short weeks, you turned what appeared to be an insurmountable job into a well-organized event. The results of the sale surpassed our expectations…"
- Curt M.

"As a geriatric care manager, I ran into a situation where I facilitated a couple moving into a personal care facility during a crisis situation leaving behind an extremely cluttered home. Thankfully I found Carolyn and she took over the rather daunting project with confidence. She not only quickly came up with a game plan to manage the project, but she then delivered her services with a high level of professionalism, above and beyond vulnerable clients and with that quickly built trust enabling her to take them swiftly through the very emotional and overwhelming process of downsizing. It is rare to find someone that has all of the organizational skills necessary to tackle big projects like this, but then also has the unique skill set necessary to work well with seniors."

- Marjorie Koch, LCSW, CGCM, Senior Links, Harrisburg PA

"My family and I appreciated your ability to move my Mother-in-law on such short notice. A lot of care was taken to pack up her things and to deliver them safely and we truly appreciate the time and effort you and Spring put in to organize her new apartment for her. The professionalism, thoughtfulness and respect you showed for my Mother-in-law and her belongings will not be forgotten.

- Sharon H., Harrisburg, PA

"When the time came to sell the house, I was at my wits' end as to how I was going to sell or donate the remaining items given that I lived over 500 miles away. 

I found the perfect answer - Caring Transitions of Mechanicsburg, willing to work around my schedule and help me determine what the best answer would be for our situation. She put me at ease from the beginning and the level of trust I felt with my mother's home and possessions being in her hands was nothing short of exemplary. Her communication was totally upfront and clear, and the amount of follow-up was perfect, neither intrusive nor lacking. Her kindness and attention to detail was unsurpassed and her willingness to go that extra mile, especially given our circumstance of distance, made the entire process a joy. 

I would whole-heartedly recommend Caring Transitions of Mechanicsburg without a second thought."

- Mindy M., Indianapolis, IN

"I want to thank and commend you and your Caring Transitions staff for the professional and efficient oversight of my Aunt's relocation move from her town home in Camp Hill to the Country Meadows Retirement Community in Mechanicsburg. On moving day it was such a pleasure to arrive at her new apartment and find it so attractively set up and fully functional. It allowed her to feel "settled in" to her new home right away. It relieved us of a huge burden that we were unable to complete by ourselves!"

- Dianne C., New Cumberland, PA

"Dear Carolyn,

I was so impressed with the service you provided to Kim Fisher in her transition to the Middletown Home. Her home was in excellent condition when you completed her sale and move and made my job easy. Kim seemed very pleased and I hope I have the opportunity to recommend your services. Thank you!

Sincerely, Carmen W"

- Carmen W., Re/Max

"WOW! Very impressive!!!! That is one job I could never have handled! You guys did an amazing job! Thank you!!!!!"

- Elizabeth M., Chicago, IL


I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for sending me such a nice crew to work with.  They are working very hard and taking great care to detail everything in order to get me the most money they can for my items.  Although my home is in total disarray, something unusual for me, I am very confident in this group.  You are truly lucky to have such great employees.  That’s hard to find these days. 

Best regards,"

- Janey
