You and your family have made the decision to look for a senior living community for your aging parent or relative. Making this choice may have been difficult, but now the real work begins: finding the right community for your loved one.
Many families find it overwhelming to research and sort through the dozens of potential independent living, assisted living, and memory care facilities in their area. This is especially true in Florida, a state that is continually developing new living communities for its rising senior population.
This is where a trusted senior placement services agency can help. Agencies like ours have connections with hundreds of local senior communities and can make expert recommendations based on the information you share about your loved one's lifestyle, mobility, memory, and medical needs.
Our assisted living and independent living placement process
At Welcome Home Senior Services & Placement Co., we pride ourselves on providing a hands-on, concierge-style experience for each of our clients and their families. We specialize in helping seniors find a community that offers the targeted social stimulation and care that they require, with an emphasis on guiding them with their financial options.
Here's a step-by-step overview of our free senior placement services.
1. Initial consultation.
Our process begins with an extensive consultation over the phone or face-to-face. During this meeting, we'll discuss your financial situation (including income, assets, and financial options), insurance coverage, potential government aid or benefits qualification, and estate plans if applicable.
2. Client screening and assessment.
Every senior is different, so we like to conduct a thorough screening to ensure we're matching your loved one to the community that best matches their needs, priorities, and budget. Some things we typically consider include the required level of care, desired community "feel" and amenities, ideal location, accommodations for visitors and guests, and whether a facility is pet-friendly.
3. Community recommendations.
Based on your consultation and screening, we will present you with several options from the 500+ communities we represent that we believe would be the right fit for your loved one.. We know there are many factors to consider when making a lifestyle change like this, so before we schedule any tours, we will take the time to address all of your concerns and questions about each community.
4. Community tours and discussion.
There is no limit to the number of senior living facilities we can help you to explore. We will take a look at any and every option that fits your needs. After visiting each community on your list, we will discuss them together in great detail so you can fully understand the differences between each facility and which ones will best meet your loved one's individual social, physical and financial needs.
5. Additional service recommendations.
Coordinating your loved one’s move can be overwhelming. We have many valuable contacts that can help you create a smooth transition, such as elder attorneys, estate planning attorneys, realtors, home health agencies, care managers, and services to assist you with the move and with downsizing belongings.
6. Follow-up and moving assistance.
Between the time you make your selection and the time your loved one moves into their chosen senior living community, we are available to answer any and all of your questions.
If you've chosen to take advantage of our add-on Concierge Service Package, we will be there on moving day to help ease the transition and help your loved one get settled. If you do not opt for this service, we will follow up with you to ensure that the move went well and that you and your family feel 100% confident in your decision.
