About Caring Transitions of Durango

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

 About the Owner: Alison Patterson


The process of helping someone relocate or clear out an estate can be challenging and, in some cases, it can take years. I’m Alison Patterson, the local owner of Caring Transitions of Durango, and at Caring Transitions, my team and I can create a plan to help you through the transitions you are facing as easily as possible so you can move on peacefully. A transition doesn’t need to be a negative experience and we are here to help.

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for managing the many aspects of a senior move, including assisting with the process of downsizing to provide a safer living situation, as well as for busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has moved into assisted care or passed away. Caring Transitions’ specially-trained professionals handle decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes to put on the market. 

Prior to launching Caring Transitions of Durango, I worked in human resources. Although I loved being a position that allowed me to help people, I was ready to take that passion in a new direction. As I was thinking about what my next step would be, my father, who lives an hour away, asked for help clearing out his garage. I found that I really enjoyed the process of going through all of his old stuff, talking about what we were going to do each item and the clear out overall. That’s when my dad told me that his college roommate’s daughter owned a Caring Transitions franchise in Michigan and the rest is history. Caring Transitions gives me the opportunity to own my own business and continue to help people. 

While our services are geared toward seniors, we can help anyone clear out a home or relocate, including out of town clients with homes in our nearby ski towns, families looking for help with a move and more. Contact me today and let’s talk about your needs and goals. My team works throughout Southwest Colorado and San Juan County in New Mexico and we’re willing to travel as needed. I look forward to working with you.

From sorting through years of memories, working with estate planners, coordinating movers and real estate agents to designing a functional and comfortable floor plan, our compassionate and experienced professionals can be involved as much or as little as you like. We’ll serve as your family’s advocate, ensuring your best interests are kept in mind throughout the process.
