Senior Care Authority® was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.Call Us Today

He utilizes this same process in assessing and determining solutions for the issues confronting seniors and their families and assisting them with their future life choices. Harold’s family experience was the genesis of wanting to assist seniors. His father had a long-term illness which resulted in ongoing challenges creating significant stress for his family. In addition, they were faced with various issues regarding the wellbeing and safety of his mother in her later years. Due to the fact no one in his family lived nearby, increased the demands of caring for his parents. Having an experienced senior advisor providing guidance would have been invaluable.
