About the Owner: Michele McGregor


It is difficult to prepare for the time that you need to downsize, move to a different living situation or clear out an estate, especially if you do not live close by when a loved one passes.   

I am Michele McGregor, the local owner and operator of Caring Transitions, Desert Cities.   I understand how these life transitions can be an overwhelming and emotional time.  Caring Transitions is a full service total solution provider.  Our promise is to reduce stress and present options that are customized to you or your family’s needs.

At Caring Transitions, our trained professionals specialize in de-cluttering, organizing, packing, moving, unpacking and settling people into their new home, in-person estate sales, on-line auctions, liquidations and preparing a home for sale.  While our services are tailored for seniors, they can be customized for anyone at any stage of moving, relocating or in transition.  Caring Transitions Desert Cities, serves Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Indian Wells, Cathedral City, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Coachella, Indio and Desert Hot Springs.

My academic background is in Psychology and prior to Caring Transitions I worked in Human Resource management and Director positions leading diverse clinical teams across North America for more than 15 years.

I am a dedicated community volunteer where I have held a variety of front line volunteer positions including serving on the Board of Dress for Success for over 5 years, as Director of Community Relations.  Dress for Success is a charity that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and life.  Currently I am a proud Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce member and Ambassador. 

The experience of volunteering and seeing firsthand the impact one can make fueled my passion to do something that would continue to make a positive difference in the lives of others. 

Finding Caring Transitions and learning about the services that this company provides was life changing.  I never imagined that there would be a business that could empower and support people with care and compassion as they move through life transitions. 

Now that I am part of the Caring Transitions family I see the positive impact that this company and my team can provide for people every day.  Caring Transitions Desert Cities is locally owned and operated however the Caring Transitions franchise has operated across the United Stated for over 12 years and in over 200 locations.  

Caring Transitions is able to manage all aspects of moving for busy families or individuals who are downsizing to move into assisted care or when a loved one has passed. 

All of the services provided by Caring Transitions are customized so clients can choose the solution that best fits their needs-whether that means managing the entire clean out, move and estate liquidation or just getting someone organized and settled into their new place-along with anything in between.   

My team and I look forward to helping you before, during and after transition so you can look forward to the next chapter of your lives with peace of mind and ease.
