Meredith Morris Brings Passion for Helping People to New Caring Transitions

LaGrange-Oak Park, IL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013 - Meredith Morris has always had a passion for people’s stories. That’s why when this experienced journalist and public relations professional decided to open her own small business, she chose Caring Transitions.

Caring Transitions specializes in customized transition and relocation planning. Services include full or partial liquidations, house cleanout and de-cluttering, preparing a house to be sold, working with real estate professionals, relocation planning and more.

"I genuinely care about people’s stories and their lives. When someone has to relocate, especially a senior, it’s often a very difficult and emotional move. Caring Transitions can alleviate the stress that goes along with those life transitions and make those moves much easier while preserving a person’s life stories," Morris said. "It matters to me that people are happy and comfortable with the end result."

Before opening Caring Transitions of LaGrange-Oak Park, Morris worked in public relations for nearly 20 years with organizations including The Morton Arboretum, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Association of Realtors. Morris also maintains her roots as a journalist by being a freelance business and arts news reporter with the Oak Leaves/Pioneer Press newspaper group and is looking forward to embracing her new life as a woman business owner.

"I discovered Caring Transitions while exploring ways to open a business and take as much control of my future as possible in an uncertain economy, as well as to contribute more tangible, immediate good. When looking at franchises, Caring Transitions jumped out and stood out above the rest because of its focus on working to help the senior population. It was love at first sight," she said.

In addition to her work, Morris also is a member of the Village of Oak Park Housing Programs Advisory Commission and has a long history of grassroots volunteer work, including years with a seniors’ organization.

Caring Transitions of LaGrange-Oak Park serves LaGrange, LaGrange Park, Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Elmwood Park, Brookfield, Riverside, North Riverside, Lemont, Willow Springs and Palos Park.
