How it works

For Professionals

We are a free resource for professionals working with older adults that need appropriate placement for their clients or patients.

For Families and Caregivers

We are a free resource for families and caregivers faced with a possible need for a senior living placement.

01

Initial Consultation

We’ll set up a time for the initial consultation via phone, Zoom, or FaceTime, and begin creating the client’s profile. We’ll discuss geographical needs, lifestyle, budget, and family considerations.

02

Assessment

The in-person assessment is designed to help us fully understand the client’s physical, psychological, neurological, and spiritual needs.

03

Explore Best Living Options

The client’s profile and assessment will guide us in finding the best residential and community living options for their needs. We know who accepts pets, offers gardening areas, and has the best social programs. We’ll also provide current pricing and availability.

04

Touring and Selection

We’ll arrange for private or virtual tours of the recommended selections and can provide transportation to each community. We are also available to accompany you on the visits. Once the client has made a final decision, we can help with obtaining medical records and documentation from the primary physician, skilled nursing facility or hospital.

Living Options

01

Aging In Place

Aging in place means having the ability to live safely and independently at home instead of moving to a senior living environment.

There are many components to consider when deciding whether aging in place is a good choice for you or your loved one. Have home modifications been made to make the home safe and accessible? Will transportation be an issue? Is there a strong support network?

Other aging in place alternatives include ADUs (accessory dwelling units), home sharing, and villages that provide services that enable aging in place.

02

Independent Living Community

Independent living communities are geared toward older adults looking to reduce the responsibilities of running a household, who want a socialized environment, and want a sense of security. These communities offer a range of services, including meal preparation, transportation, housekeeping and laundry, and social activities. Independent living communities also encourage healthy aging with wellness programs, and travel, educational and cultural opportunities.

03

Assisted Living

Assisted Living Communities typically offer several levels of care and have shared areas for meals, socializing, and recreational activities.

Private rooms, studios and apartments offer residents their own space with the benefit of caregiving services available 24 hours a day that include medication management, help with bathing, dressing, eating, and walking.

An assisted living community does not provide the round the clock medical care and supervision of a skilled nursing facility.

04

Residential Care Homes

Board and Care homes (also known as RCFEs – Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly) are home-like environments that generally provide the same services that are available in the larger assisted living communities. They tend to be houses nestled in residential neighborhoods, and can offer care for residents that are either ambulatory or non-ambulatory.

Most Board and Care homes have 6 residents, and given this small number, staff are usually able to give more personalized attention than what is typically offered at larger assisted living communities.

Board and care homes may provide specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

05

Memory Care

The sole focus of a Memory Care home or community is to provide specialized care for patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. These specialized environments are staffed with professionals trained to provide this care. Services offered include safety precautions to prevent wandering, and cognitive therapies and programs designed to keep the brain active and engaged.

Memory Care environments can be stand alone homes and buildings, or a special wing or floor of a larger, mixed community. 

06

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)

Skilled nursing care, also known as nursing home care, or convalescent care, is the highest level of care available outside of a hospital. Skilled Nursing Facilities provide 24 hour specialized medical care by registered nurses, physicians, and other certified health professionals that include occupational and physical therapists.

Nursing home care is often long-term care, but can also be a shorter recuperative stay after a surgery or illness.
