How We Help You Find the Best Community for Your Senior

How We Help Tabs - CarePatrol - panel1

It all begins with a simple phone call. Why is this call so important?

Choosing a safer senior housing option, unfortunately, cannot be made by appearance alone. What is most important is something that really can’t be seen. It is "Can this community really care for your senior?" That's why CarePatrol's advisors complete a "Care Discovery" and base our recommendations on care options that can specifically meet your individual needs and preferences.

Guided Tour of Communities

We believe in private & personalized tours. We literally walk you through the steps. You will never get a list from us and be told to “go visit them alone, or on your own.” After we’ve matched your individualized needs to safer care options in your area, we will accompany you on a tour of each one of them. Or, we will provide a virtual tour if that works better for you. You are never alone because we will be your personal care guide from start to finish.

Full Care Details & Transparent Pricing

We insist on transparency with pricing & services. We don’t like surprises either. How to pay for care is always a concern and a valid question of our clients. Another important question relates to what services are provided in a specific care option. We can help alleviate these concerns. We will inform you of private, Veterans, or other government programs that you may be eligible for.

Moving Day & Transition Support

We work with the community so you can focus on your loved one. Change can be hard, especially for Seniors. We make sure everything is in order so on moving day, everybody’s attention can be on making the transition as smooth as possible. Ensuring your questions are answered and you continue to feel good about your decision is as important as getting your senior settled in to a new environment.

Julie Sentiff

Director of Client Relations

"Healthcare professionals work with me to help their patients because they know that I will always do what I say I will. They know I will go the extra mile for their families and hold their hand through what can be a very overwhelming time. I am dedicated to making myself available for families who need support and they can call me day or night, seven days a week, and I will guide them through next steps to keep their loved one safe."

Julie has worked in the senior care industry for over a decade. Her experience working in Independent, Assisted Living and Memory Care communities, as well as helping hundreds of families secure private duty and in-home care services in their homes makes her a great addition to the CarePatrol team. Julie holds a BA from the University at Buffalo and started her career in Marketing and Event Management. She always had a strong desire to help people and came to the senior care industry a decade ago to follow her passion. Julie has made it her mission to serve seniors of Western and Central New York acting as a consultant for families, assisting them to navigate through the complexities of elder and long term care. 
Julie also serves as the Board Chair for the United Church Home Society, the organization that runs the Senior Wishes program locally, granting life enriching wishes to low income seniors.

Why I Do This

I fell in love with senior living over a decade ago. I have witnessed first hand how a senior’s quality of life can drastically improve in the right setting with the right support services in place. I have watched families cry tears of joy when they see their Mom or Dad thriving and enjoying life again, and you can see the relief they have knowing they are safe, cared for and loved. I am so passionate about educating families on misconceptions of senior living and offering solutions to improve their lives. I am truly blessed to be able to do this every day.
