Please don’t ask us to just give you a list of empty beds!
That would be contrary to our mission and professional value to you. In our eyes, quality of care and safety comes first, closely followed by a social and friendly atmosphere, good food and attention to personal tastes and needs. It’s also important to know the location is convenient to hospitals, doctors, church, friends and family. We are very proud of our reputation for having a commitment to quality care and we will refer you to the kind of facilities you need that have previously demonstrated a similar commitment.

Note: We always keep your contact information totally private.
Discussion of Alternatives
Bearing in mind the uniqueness of your loved one’s particular care needs, we will want to discuss with you all the available alternatives and services available.
If you wish us to meet with the family and/or the person needing care, we will be happy to do that at your convenience, however to expedite the process, we can handle most things by phone.
The Next Step
In the next step, we discuss the care needed with those providers that may have an opening who most nearly meet the care & location requirements. When we have their agreement to consider the care of the person in need, we present you with at least three options for your choice AND we will keep working with you.
Your choice – The Tour
When we have made the top matches of the most optimum places for you, we anticipate you will want to tour them. Please keep in mind this can be a very subjective experience. You will be viewing places through your eyes and that of your loved one. All of us, being human, tend to view things just a bit differently. It may be important that your loved one helps make the choice. In some cases, it may be more important for you to take the lead and make that decision, sometimes with the support of other family members. We can discuss this with you. Bear in mind, that with our almost 29 years of experience, we will refer you to only those facilities where we feel the care would be excellent. That should give you considerable peace of mind. (If transportation is needed for your visits, we can assist you)
Senior care residences are designed for comfort and safety. Your family member can enjoy the comforts of home while having the safety, security, and assistance of a professional and caring staff. We know what facilities are available, their varying levels of service and special skills. Most facilities specifically tailor their programs to suit the special needs of their residents. All facilities we would refer you to have been licensed and are obligated to perform within the parameters of their license. People being people means some may be a bit different than others. We do expect the best from them and we take great pains to find the best situation for you.
