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:
Residential care homes
Skilled nursing homes
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.
