Do you ever wonder what happens when you visit one of those online referral services for elder care?  

You'll fill out an online form and click send.  What happens next?  Your information is sent to every senior living facility in a 20-mile radius.  Expect an inundation of phone calls within 30 minutes from every sales and marketing person who gets your info!  Of course all these facilities won't be suitable for your loved ones' specific needs.  

Call me instead.  I offer personalized service to people looking for the perfect place for their senior loved ones to live.  I've worked in senior living for the past 13 years.  I know about all the communities in the area.  I know the people who manage them.  I know what services they offer, and how much they cost.  

Let me help you weed out the inappropriate places and point you to the top two or three communities that best fit your needs.
