Frequently Asked Questions

  • Finding and selecting the proper senior living community is comparative to purchasing a new home. While you can surely undertake such a process on your own, is it really the most beneficial approach? Would you agree it is unwise to purchase a home without (1) understanding the specifics of the neighborhood; (2) allowing an experienced professional to examine the home’s suitability; and (3) properly negotiating the best possible purchase price? Making a senior care decision is equally as important – even more so in many cases – and working with one of our trained Senior Living Advisors ensures that you have a professional partner to aid you through the entire senior living process.

    The reality is that most people are largely unaware of the many differences in senior living options, the dependability of the companies that provide senior living services, and how to adequately evaluate the quality of care. And simply because someone you know is happy in a certain senior living community, does not necessarily mean it will be a proper fit for you or your loved one.
