Allies in Downsizing


If you’re going to invite me into your home or office then you might like to know a little about me. Well 1st and foremost, my family means everything to me so in order for you to understand me… Here I am with my Family!  

My name is Debby McNair and I am the owner of Allies in Downsizing. This company is new however, my experience is not. With aging parents, in-laws, aunts, uncles, friends & neighbours, I understand how life can throw us curve balls. The ability to manage even the basic tasks of daily life can take a back seat to more urgent matters.


I have spent the last several years downsizing 3 sets of parents, Aunts, Uncle, Cousins and several others before deciding to start my own business. From simply purging their homes to downsizing into apartments to moving into retirement homes and nursing homes, it’s my passion to help. The transformation is amazing! “Easy living” as my Dad now calls it…By the way he was NEVER going to downsize! “I couldn’t have done it without you” said my Aunt when she moved into her retirement home…By the way she was NEVER going to move into a retirement home!


Recognizing it’s time to talk to our loved ones about downsizing, moving or simply purging their possessions is a tough conversation. I know all too well how you and your loved ones are feeling. The emotions, the stress, and the anguish of making such a change are, in some cases unthinkable. Where to start? What to do? Who’s going to do it? Well…We are! Because once it’s all said and done, I will tell you … “Life will be easier and simpler for your loved one!”


After completing several moves and downsizing, I have come to the realization that seniors need someone with compassion. Sorting through (years of memories, possessions, treasures) Packing, Unpacking, Moving (out of your once dream home) was not only emotionally stressful but physically demanding.


I would love the opportunity to help you overcome whatever is keeping you from achieving your downsizing goals. Create a more peaceful, functional, and orderly home environment where you can truly live the easy, stress free life you deserve.

We recently downsized from our home
of 28 years to a 2 bedroom apartment.
We had a lot of stuff to get rid of. We couldn't have done it without you.
