To register with a senior placement agency, submit an inquiry on its website. Within 24 hours, a consultant will contact you to discuss the type of living community you need based on medical conditions, physical needs, location, social environment, budget for care and housing.
Using a senior placement agency to help search for a facility reduces the stress on the caregivers and family members already overwhelmed by care-giving demands. The agency deals with this difficult transition by researching the best care available, scheduling facility tours, negotiating prices and gathering all of the necessary paperwork, making usually tough decisions easier. The agency recommends suitable residential care homes and senior living communities to the families based on their needs.
Reputable senior placement consulting agencies such as Seniorsfirst.org and Carewatchers.org are well known for placing elderly in need of care in a suitable senior facility. They operate nationwide and partner with facilities in different states.
