Feel Confident

We give you the top matching options.

In Three Easy Phases

First, we meet with you and/or your loved one. We make a thorough evaluation of your situation. We educate you on the appropriate senior housing options, review pros & cons and make recommendations on type of housing and care best suited to your needs.

Second, we make a list of all the senior housing communities and care homes matching your needs. Then, we do the calling for you to verify current available vacancies, and share pertinent health and care needs. We arrange a day and time for you to visit. We don't give out your contact information.

We accompany you on your tours of senior housing communities or care homes. We help you ask the right questions. We act as a buffer from the "hard sell" so you can objectively compare amenities and services. We represent you and act as an advocate.

Fourth, once you've selected a new home, we are your go-to resource for information and referrals: moving companies, attorneys, care managers, Veteran's information, and much more. We follow up and stay in contact. We continue as your trusted advisor long after your move.

“Jennifer was just the right resource at the right time.  She zeroed in on what our needs were and arranged for site visits to several Memory Care options for Mom.  Five “thumbs ups” from our family!” Tupper Family

“I am so thankful for the guidance & assistance provided by Jennifer in finding a Senior Living Facility for my 88-year old Mom.  She met Mom and quickly understood her personality, lifestyle, hopes & fears about relocating. Jennifer showed us four places in our area and helped us ask the right questions. After moving, Mom smiles and laughs more. She's happier, more relaxed and loves introducing her new friends to me.

Jennifer made a daunting process very simple.”

Service Fees

Our senior housing advisory services are No Charge to seniors and families. We have contracts with the senior communities and homes. They pay us a flat referral fee  - not a percentage of rent. Giving you unbiased options is our top priority.

We have no ownership or vested interests in any senior living community. 

Helping you make the best senior living decision for your situation is my number one goal.  To achieve this goal, it is important we partner together - working in an open and honest manner. Please review the Partnership Agreement. When you're ready to start working together, please download, sign and bring to our first meeting.
