A Senior Care Advisor will meet personally with you to discuss your options, accompany you on visits to locations and ensure that all your questions are answered. The hallmark of our service commitment is that we are by your side every step of the way. We would be happy to put you in contact with an advisor in your area who will provide you with expert advice on any of the assisted living locations listed in our directory of locations.

Get individualized assistance with your loved one

Sometimes our families just need more help with challenging transitions and decision-making. This may include facilitating essential conversations between family members, home care agency or caregiver selection, connections to valuable resources or regular visitations with a loved one providing "peace of mind" to family members when they are unable to visit themselves.

It can be comforting to have someone partner with you who is outside the emotional landscape of the family, doing research, talking to providers, organizing paperwork, or finding those "needle in a haystack" resources. A go-to person you can turn to when things get overwhelming. Whatever the need, we can customize our services for your family or provide you with vetted referral sources.

DD Piyanontalee

assisted living consultant DD Piyanon

I have always thought that the most critical stages of our life are the beginning when babies are born and children are growing and when we are reaching our senior years. At both stages, we tend to be more vulnerable; children aren't ready and capable to be independent as is similar in the elderly, who are becoming more dependent on help and support. It is critical at both stages to stay in a trusted and caring environment. I have always had an affinity for the “vulnerables”. My attitude in life has been to treat others in the way I want to be treated -- being kind to others and being of help where I am able. Human kindness and gratitude makes the world a better place for everyone.

Joining Senior Care Authority is another step that I have taken to give back and help families who are struggling with difficult decisions. My goal is and always will be to find the best care solutions, knowing there is no “one size fits all”. Each individual has particular needs and criteria, which I always take into consideration when helping a family sort out their situation.

I am fortunate in that that my mother, in her eighties, is currently under the loving care of one of my sisters. I see my mother’s physical and emotional needs, and understand what it takes to provide the best quality of life possible.

I look forward to helping your family put the “care puzzle” together.
