How Senior Placement Agencies Support Seniors and their Families

By Lynne Robb

Families at some point may come to the conclusion that the living situation for their loved is no longer safe and/or sustainable. The senior may require help with their personal needs and/or struggle with everyday chores, and even present a danger to themselves. The family caregivers may no longer be able to provide the necessary assistance, care, or time. Often when making a decision under stress, trying to gather all the needed information to make an informed decision on your own is nearly impossible. There are just too many things to consider and there are so many facilities to choose from. Trying to tour each one, ask the right questions, narrowing down the options, and making a final choice would give anyone a headache. That is where senior placement agency comes in. They make the process of transitioning into senior living easy and comfortable. They understand this isn’t just about an individual transition but is often a family transition as well. They work with the whole family to find the perfect fit.

There are many benefits in using a Senior Living Placement Service including:

  • Providing Local Support: Meeting and interviewing families extensively to understand healthcare, social preferences, location preferences and financial picture to narrow down and provide best care options to provide the highest quality of life.
  • Provide Resources: Community amenities, pricing information, occupancy rates, payment resources, moving and downsizing, veterans benefits, and elder law attorneys
  • Saving Time: Arranging tours and joining the family on tours to advocate and ensure their questions get answered.
  • Advocating for Family and Loved One: Assisting in the process of what is a very difficult decision every step of the way, by being the liaison, counseling and advocating for the family and resident every step of the way.
  • Follow-Up Care: Once the perfect placement is found, checking in periodically to ensure everything is going well.
  • 100% FREE Service
