Free Senior Living Consultations RE: Long Term Care

Making decisions about moving from home to a facility can be made easier by using a consultant who has experience and information about the facilities in your area. Matching the needs of elderly seniors with the type of care and setting offered by facilities can avoid making a mistake that is regretted after moving. To read about consultants and what they offer you can go to or search for consultants in your own area on the internet.

After seniors have made a deposit at a long term care facility and moved from home it can be disapppointing to find that the facility is not a good match for their needs and preferences. The consultants I spoke to said they match seniors with care facilities. They will visit the facilities with you so you can make an informed decision. The consultation is free because the facilities pay a finders fee to the consultants.

Because they have current information about available space at the long term care facilities, and familiarity because they visit them regularly, the consultants can give you their impressions and recommendations.

You can check the internet and phone book for your area. In San Luis Obispo County, California, there is a company called Senior Living Consultants. They are located at 3164 S. Broad St., Suite 114, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. The number is (805) 545-9501. Their Santa Barbara office is located at 18 W.
