WHAT ARE SENIOR HOUSING PLACEMENT SERVICES/AGENCIES?
Choosing housing or care options for yourself or a loved one is not always a simple process and can be overwhelming. Senior Housing Placement Services/Agencies help families sift through available options and identify the community best suited to their needs. Placement advisors may help with placement for:
- Assisted living
- Independent living
- Memory care
- Retirement communities
- Residential care homes
- Skilled nursing homes
- Respite services
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every person’s needs are different, so the individualized attention given by a placement advisor is important. Your advisor will:
- Provide a no-obligation consultation
- Assess care needs, financial status, geographic location, and what you desire in a community.
- Review the options that meet your needs/desires
- Schedule and accompany you on community tours
- Assist you in post tour evaluation and choice
- Connect you to relevant transition services and resources
- Follow up after the move
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Most agencies provide services to the consumer free of charge. When a placement is made, the chosen community compensates the agency with a referral fee. Since most communities have policies that support this arrangement, you can feel confident in working with a Senior Housing Placement Service/Agency because their fee is not attached to making specific community choices.
WHY USE A SENIOR HOUSING PLACEMENT SERVICE/AGENCY?
An agency’s sole purpose is to assist families in choosing the community that is best for them. Advisors have an extensive, in-depth knowledge of the local community, placement options, and other resources and services needed to make the transition a smooth one.
