...young at heart

Senior Referral Agencies available FREE With over 3,500 senior communities in Washington state alone, it can be very overwhelming when it comes time to start your search for senior housing or senior in-home care. Senior referral agencies are becoming more and more available to seniors in the Bothell-Kenmore neighborhood. The great thing about this service is that it is often FREE to all seniors and their families. These agencies know how hard the search can be and they are here to be your guardian angel by doing the research for you and acting as your advocate. Your assigned advisor will get to know you on all levels so that they can help you make the best decision possible in today’s confusing landscape of options. A senior housing expert will meet with you and provide an initial intake session where they gather your needs and expectations. They then match your needs with providers best suited to YOU and schedule tours of the selected communities. You have the option for them to accompany you on your tour(s) if desired. They strive to make sure the ultimate decision is the right decision and they act as your go-to person during this process to make sure all the questions have been answered. Unfortunately, many of them have witnessed the rapid decline that can happen when an individual is placed in a community that is not suited to their needs.

They help you make the RIGHT CHOICE the FIRST TIME! Call or email Patrick Shepard today at 425-8777311 or patrick@corner- for more information. Patrick works with Cornerstone Senior Care, just one of the many agencies out there working hard for our seniors!
