Senior Housing Placement Services/Agencies

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.
