Senior Living Advisor Explained
As a fee-only senior living advisor or 'navigator', I work with seniors and families to identify senior living options that meets their needs, and
During a time of crisis and emotional turmoil involving loved ones, I provide expertise and objective information to guide home care, downsizing and senior housing decisions.
Independent from Conflicts of Interest

Just like any professional, such as a lawyer discussing your Power of Attorney decision or tax accountant preparing your return, as a Certified Professional on Aging Consultant, the interests of my clients come first, not my financial gain.
