What We Do . . .
- We will first meet with you on the phone and evaluate what type of Assisted Living Facility will best meet your needs with the changes going on in your life. We can assess what you are able to do independently to determine if you are able to meet the requirements for an Assisted Living Facility. In the event that you do not meet the requirements, we will take the time to guide you to further options.
- We will explore your finances together to help fit you with the appropriate facility that is suitable for your budget. We can also suggest financial resources that can save you money if you qualify.
- We will then talk about the geographical area you are most interested in living. Together, we will choose three to four facilities to tour and if you choose, drive you to see the options to gain a first-hand experience of the ones you have chosen.
- Once you have selected the best place for your future living, we will help you with the medical paperwork and provide excellent referrals to help facilitate your move. We will guide you to In-Home Care Agencies, Moving Companies, Elder Law Attorneys, Estate Planners, Veteran’s Assistance, and Skilled Nursing Homes.
Who We Are . . .
