Relocation & Downsizing

Let's Make A Plan

Many of us have had the experience of considering a move at some point in our life, and it seems with each move comes more accumulation. The thought of having to go through all of that accumulated “stuff” can be overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be.

Here we’ve compiled some tips and support to help guide you through the process of downsizing, which for many older adults is really "right sizing". A Longview senior living counselor is also available to talk you through the process and offer expert guidance and support during this next chapter of your life.

Why Is Ithaca So Gorges?

Bumper stickers, t-shirts and decals galore declare “Ithaca is Gorges.” Pun intended, Ithaca is surrounded by beautiful gorges, waterfalls, and parks, not to mention Cayuga Lake. Several stunning recreation areas including Buttermilk Falls State Park, Robert H. Treman State Park, Ithaca Falls and Taughannock State Park (home to Taughannock Falls, the highest free-falling waterfall in the northeastern United States, 33 feet taller than Niagara Falls!) are all only a short drive from Longview.

But Ithaca is so much more than just awe-inspiring nature. It’s a small town with urban flair, chock-full of live music, local theatre, festivals, parades, and a world-famous assortment of restaurants that will satisfy even the most eclectic palate.

Ithaca is also a college town. Starting every August, Ithaca is home to approximately 30,000 Cornell University and Ithaca College students.

Between the two schools, there’s a mind-boggling assortment of events like athletics, concerts, theatre performances, and academic lectures that add to the richness of life in this beautiful area.
