About Caring Transitions of Greater Worcester

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

Whether you’ve decided to downsize or you’re clearing the home of someone who has passed, packing and moving is always stressful. I’m Joe Abbascia, the local owner and operator of Caring Transitions of Greater Worcester, Massachusetts.

Making a positive impact on our community has always been an important part of my work for the last 15 years while helping my agents as a Real Estate Broker. Our emphasis over the years has developed into helping families that have inherited a house, most times it would be the children, and other times a surviving spouse.

We figured out many different solutions to help; if their house needed a lot of work and the family just needed to sell it quick due to lack of funds for upkeep, I would buy it at an agreed price. If it were in decent shape, then we would list it for sale, and the nice thing, they could always go back and have us buy it for the agreed amount price anytime.

Over the years, our work developed a network of attorneys, Real Estate agents, Contractors, Donation Centers, Movers and more. So, I found myself searching for a business model that could really complement our real estate endeavor, I envisioned our business model to transition into something different from all the traditional Real Estate Agent Services out there. Caring Transitions became that vehicle for me which created a turnkey solution for us in helping seniors and their families solve this ongoing dilemma of a one stop shop!

Regardless of the situation, planned or unexpected, the loss of a loved one or the need to relocate someone can be challenging. The physical challenges and emotional strains can be overwhelming enough, without the added stress of life’s unexpected events. Caring Transitions of Greater Worcester offers a streamlined support system to help facilitate a less stressful transition, taking care of the details so you can take care of yourself and your loved ones while you leave it all to us.

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.

As the owner, I take great pride in all the communities we service, and we are proud of our many achievements, one has been an A+ rating with the BBB and zero complaints. Caring Transitions’ is our turnkey solution services for seniors either moving into a retirement community or a downsized house. Our services are also perfect for busy families and individuals, no matter the transition challenge that you may be facing; a job change/corporate relocation, divorce, disability or a downsizing need. All our services are customizable, so you’ll only pay for the services you need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing, online auction… or just getting someone resettled into their new place.

In his personal time, Joe enjoys helping others and gives back to his community; he has also served as an elected officer of his church. An important cause dear to his heart is the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network., along with St Jude’s Research hospital. As a Certified Scuba Diver, Joe filled a long time desire to dive in Disney’s Epcot Living Seas aquarium, which is billed as the 2nd largest man-made body of water in the world; he was one of the Disney cast members during the dive. Joe also loves to travel and explore new places and is also a New England Sports fan.
