About the Owner: Melody Bailey

Whether you’re moving, downsizing or clearing out a loved one’s home, going through a transition can be challenging. I’m Melody Bailey, a life-long West Virginian and the local owner of Caring Transitions of Kanawha Valley. I opened this business because I saw a need for Caring Transitions in our community and I saw an opportunity to serve this region in a new way.

Caring Transitions is unique – we are a full-service solution and we are focused on compassionate, caring service. We understand that transitions are tough and we want to help you get to the next chapter in your life with as little stress as possible. My specially-trained team members handle decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions of Kanawha Valley serves Charleston, Elkview, Cross Lanes, Winfield, Teays Valley and Hurricane as well as the rest of Kanawha, Putnam, and other surrounding counties. 

This is a family-oriented region and, when someone needs help, it’s assumed the family will pitch in to get things done. But we all know that sometimes having your family step in might not be the best or most efficient option and it’s easy for a weekend project to turn into a year-long one. Whether you want someone to take over the process all together or you need a little help with one piece of the transition, my team and I are here to help. 

Before Caring Transitions, I spent more than a decade working for the state government. While I enjoyed the work I did, I was ready for a change. When I took a hard look at what I loved to do and what I might enjoy for my next move, I came up with what might sound like an unusual answer… I absolutely love to move and to help people move. I love going through a house, looking at everything inside, creating a plan, packing and resettling. Anytime a friend or family member is looking to move, they call me. 

When I came across Caring Transitions while researching business opportunities, I realized this business would be a perfect combination of my passion for planning, relocating and estate clearing with a service I felt this area desperately needed. I’m excited to work with people in this community and to help families have less stressful transitions. I’m looking forward to meeting you.
