What Our Clients Are Saying

Area Owners: Mike Kearney and Dave Schanz

144 Village Landing - Fairport, NY 14450



"I called Senior Care Authority to get help in placing my Mom in a nursing home. Dave was with me all the way even though I never got to use his service, as my Mom passed away sooner than we thought she would. He answered every question I called him with, even after he knew my Mom had passed. Definitely would recommend Senior Care Authority!"

-S. Sinaguglia

"Dave Schanz came to my dad's house and sat down with us at our kitchen table and his manner and knowledge put my dad and I at ease immediately. He has extensive experience with dozens of facilities around our area and many many wonderful suggestions. We had an appointment with an assisted living facility the next day he arranged for us. Dave met us there and literally stood by our side. I cannot tell you how much of a burden he lifted from us. Thank you Dave. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone."

-G. Silco

"Dave Schanz is the best of the best. He truly cares about his clients and works tirelessly for them. Dave goes the extra mile and will answer any and all questions that you may have. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Bottom line: skip the big guys (A Place for Mom, Caring.com, etc.) and choose Senior Care Authority. You won’t regret it."

-S. Purdell

"A SR friend of family ended up in hospital then rehab and needed to move out of her apartment. It happened quickly and was a bit complicated as I wasn't family and not POA. Was introduced to Mike. He was just amazing with my SR and he took such a load off both my SR and my shoulders. He guided/educated me through the legal, financial, medical and logistics of helping someone needing to move to assisted living, and later to extended care. He was always responsive to my questions (even when he was on vacation). I will be forever grateful for his help and support."

-A. Fien

"Dave could not have been more of a help, hope to use him in the future. Can only give an A+ rating. Thanks so much for your help, Barb George."

"After my mother suffered a stroke causing significant cognitive impairment, we were told by doctors that she would need a higher level of care. Unfortunately, she didn't understand her deficits or agree that she needed to leave her home. After many months of providing in home care, it became apparent that this wasn't enough. Her doctor's office suggested contacting Mike Kearney, who had helped others in this situation. From start to finish, he guided us through the process of finding my mother an assisted living facility where she could thrive, and we could rest assured she would be properly cared for. He took the time to learn what our needs were, suggested options and set up visitation to prospective facilities. He was kind, patient thoroughly informed about all our community facilities. He made this very difficult process so much less stressful than I anticipated it would be. His services were indispensable. Looking back on it, I can't imagine going through this process without his help. And once my mother chose a facility that she actually likes, he brought her a welcome plant on move-in day. A very personal touch. I would recommend Mike and Senior Care Authority to anyone needing to move a loved one into a health care facility. "

-Cheryl D.

"Mike Kearney at Senior Care Authority did in 2 days what would have taken us weeks to accomplish. At a time filled with so much stress and confusion, it was such a relief to have someone take charge. We found the perfect placement for our loved one, I don’t think we would have without Mike’s help. Knowing what we were looking for in a facility, he came up with numerous places to tour. He accompanied us to each one and asked all the right questions for us. Words cannot express how grateful we are. We strongly recommend Senior Care Authority! "

-Doreen P.

"Mike did a lot of the "legwork" for me and my family and this allowed us to concentrate on her doctor appointments and other care. I did not have time to do an extensive search based on my Mom' diagnosis and prognosis. Time was a factor. Thanks so much."

-Kathleen

"He made all the appointments and participated in the discussions with the people we interviewed in each home. AND when I made the choice and wavered when we actually moved in he gave me advice and support that was instrumental in helping me carry on...."

-Sandra L.

"I would absolutely recommend Mike and Senior Care Authority. I knew that placing my mom in assisted living would be difficult and stressful. I knew nothing of the facilities in our community and knew the search would be time consuming and scary. Mike listened carefully to our needs, set up and accompanied us to the places we visited and helped us ask the right questions to properly assess each place. He made a very tough process so much easier. My mother is now in a very nice facility and we have peace of mind. I can't imagine going through this without his help. Thanks Mike!"

-Cheryl D.

"I/we consider Mike our knight in shining armor and our angel. A 92 yr old friend of the family ended up in hospital and then rehab. She was not going to be able to go back to her apt. and in fact rehab insurance coverage was ending and would be needing a place SOON. I was bit in over my head in trying to figure this out. Rehab social worker made the connection to Mike K. Mike helped us understand NY distinctions for various housing options, consulted with us on options, made phone calls and appointments, gave input on places of interest, asked the right questions of nurses/PT/social services to help evaluate needs, DROVE our SR for tour interviews and stayed with us on the tour, and reviewed financials. Mike helped me personally understand my concerns (I was not a Proxy or POA). I had a planned out of town trip and Mike worked to expedite the move. When Sr ended up back in hospital he showed up at the hospital and gave reassurance on the changed options/logistics for our SR and gave me a much needed shoulder. Then as I left town, Mike followed up that the move happened and our SR was settled. I am so thankful for all he helped with and will sing his praises to all who might use his services. Like I said a knight in shining armor. "
