Carlsbad CA— Carlsbad resident Dawn Lesicko is looking forward to starting a new chapter of her life as a small business owner serving seniors and their families through her new business, Caring Transitions of Carlsbad.
Caring Transitions is America’s largest resource specializing in managing relocations for seniors and busy families as well as downsizing and estate liquidations. In addition to the organizing, packing and move oversight, Caring Transitions can handle on-site and online estate sales, liquidations, and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions of Carlsbad serves San Diego County, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista and San Marcos as well as the surrounding communities.
“Every move is challenging, but after my divorce, when I downsized and decluttered, it was really hard. I ended up giving away and donating most of my stuff, but I would have done it all differently if I had known about Caring Transitions. I saw the need for services like these and I’m looking forward to being the one to provide them to my community,” Lesicko said.
Lesicko brings a wealth of knowledge to this new business including a degree in organizational management and experience as a business owner, realtor and co-owner of a homeowner’s association management firm. She also raised two children – a daughter and a son – who both served in the Air Force. While her kids were in school, Lesicko was an active at-home mom and volunteered as an art docent, art program chairperson, band booster president, PTA board member and sports team statistician.
She also knows a few things about the challenges of moving – Lesicko went to 14 grade schools, moved 10 times before settling down to raise her family in 1982, and has moved four times since. She decided to open Caring Transitions after her most recent move, which brought her back to Carlsbad, where she lived for 29 years.
“It was important for me to find a business that would be fulfilling professionally and personally while allowing me to use my nurturing instincts to assist those facing life’s challenges. After a lot of soul searching and research, I decided to open my own business. I found Caring Transitions and found it was the perfect match for me, especially considering my own professional background and moving experience,” Lesicko said.
Whether your situation is planned or unexpected, Caring Transitions’ services are great for busy families, seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation, or families clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed.
While considering opening her own Caring Transitions franchise, Lesicko helped a friend move her mother from Texas to California. That’s what cemented her commitment to opening this business.
“When we transported her mom, my friend commented that I was really great with older adults and I should consider working with them full-time. That was the final acknowledgment that I could do this and be the solution families in our area are looking for. I want to bring a sense of peace and calm to what can be a hectic and emotional situation,” Lesicko said.
“Sometimes when you’re downsizing – especially if you’re moving a senior into assisted living – it can feel like the end of an era. I want to help people see their relocation as a joyous start to a new chapter in their lives. It doesn’t have to be a negative experience,” she added.
Caring Transitions is a trusted and highly respected national company leading the way in senior relocation, household liquidations and estate sale management in more than 150 locations across the United States.
