In summary, we couldn’t have gone through the process of finding my father an Assisted Living facility without Senior Care Authority. Dave was very patient with my family and coached us through the whole process. If you are going through this with a family member, I highly recommend you have Senior Care Authority on your team.

About Dave Schanz

Dave’s previous career spanned forty years developing business, selling and marketing consumer electronics, telecommunications, and internet devices to some of the largest companies in America for RCA, GE, Thomson, Technicolor, and LEA Networks.

After 20 years away from Upstate NY, he retired from constant travel and high technology toys. Dave and his wife Jacquie purchased a home in 2018 in anticipation of returning to Rochester to care for my father who was suffering from Alzheimer’s and needing constant care. Sadly, shortly afterwards his father was diagnosed with Leukemia and passed.

Dave now enjoys guiding and informing seniors and their families to the best available communities where seniors have all the care and amenities needed to support their independence in retirement with compassion and empathy.
