John Alagood


John Alagood grew up on stories about new model T’s and prohibition, WWI to Vietnam, and canning food for lean winters. Experiences around three generations of care needs, including decades of independent living, memory care for protracted Alzheimer’s, a 100th birthday, and home care after sudden strokes, have been huge sources of joy and pain.

Before professionally assisting seniors, John worked as a management consultant and crisis manager. Over the course of 20 years, he and his teams served more than 100 businesses and charities, ranging from Fortune 500 to startups, in over 20 industries and on four continents.

A Certified Senior Advisor, John is now focused entirely on serving seniors in his local community of Dallas-Fort Worth. His crisis experience, both in his professional and personal life, allows him to help families make courageous and informed decisions under difficult circumstances.

“It shouldn’t be this hard for families to find the best senior living options, especially when the stakes are so high,” says the long-time Dallas resident. “However, there are over 500 options in DFW for assisted living alone, with wildly varying degrees of quality and service. My goal is to make the advocacy and guidance I would want for my own family accessible to seniors throughout DFW.”

John spends a great deal of time touring and reviewing the local living communities — including assisted living, independent living, dementia and memory care, and residential care homes — to help his clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones.

When asked about his approach, John says, “I get to do a lot of listening, understanding each family’s unique circumstances. This allows me to make the process less overwhelming by providing them with a short-list of the best care options to meet their needs. I then tour communities with the family, assist with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with the senior after they’ve moved in.”

John’s team offers a complimentary Needs Assessment with no obligation.  Then, a Best-Fit Evaluation of up to 100 area options begins with a good faith deposit, which is typically applied to the first month’s rent.

When not serving seniors, John enjoys time with his wife and middle-school daughter, playing his Martin backpacker guitar, and close fellowship at church. He also is a long-time and passionate Child Advocate with Compassion International.
