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.Meet Your Local CarePatrol Senior Advisor

What Is a Senior Living Advisor?
A senior living advisor is an expert on local providers of senior living communities and residential assisted living homes. For seniors living in their own homes, a senior living advisor is a valuable resource for in-home care assistance as well as a reliable referral source for other professions serving the senior population, such as attorneys, PCPs, and medicare agents.
What Does a Certified Senior Advisor Do?
A Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) is an individual who has achieved accreditation through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors (SCSA). The accreditation consists of educational programs, formal exams, and a code of ethics training, courses, and tests.
How To Find a Senior Living Advisor?
A good place to start is going to the website of an organization that specializes in senior living, such as CarePatrol (carepatrol.com). CarePatrol has senior care advisors listed by state and zip code and a plethora of resources on its website. Doing a google search with a specific location such as "senior living advisor Glendale AZ" will provide options. Several physician practices with geriatric care may also refer a qualified advisor.
When Should Assisted Living Be Considered?
If the safety of the senior living at home can no longer be ensured then it is time for assisted living. Unsafe conditions include frequent falls, getting lost, and leaving appliances on. Other signs include an unkempt house, lack of bathing, wearing the same clothes, unpaid bills, and weight loss. Seniors with chronic conditions such as dementia, diabetes, arthritis, COPD, and diseases that decrease their mobility are especially vulnerable.
What Does a Memory Care Specialist Do?
A memory care specialist assists seniors and their families who are living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia in finding the appropriate memory care community, daycare provider, or residential assisted living provider. The specialist is a local expert on the options available within the locality based on the level of care required.
