Our Certified Senior Advisors have comprehensive knowledge and experience with all facets of senior living, from independent living situations to assisted living homes and memory care communities and can help you choose the perfect placement for your loved one.
Senior care can be a multifaceted responsibility, and families often need help with challenging transitions, endless decision making, or navigating a complex healthcare system. Our Descanso senior care consulting can help facilitate the process.
Oftentimes, families must try to digest critical information from a variety of sources, and it can become overwhelming and almost impossible to sort out what you need to know. An advocate can be a good ally to have, especially when things get complicated and decisions must be made.
A third party outside the emotional landscape of your family during tough decision making can be a tremendous benefit. A coach can help make sure everyone is heard and seen and that people are treated fairly, even if you don’t all agree. Your coach can help your family find consensus when it needs it most.
