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.

Senior Care Placement in Lehigh Valley and Upper Bucks

At CarePatrol of Lehigh Valley and Upper Bucks, we understand that choosing the proper care community for your loved one is a complicated and stressful process. When it comes to finding a safe place where your senior can live their best life while getting the assistance they require, you need a team that can help you understand all your options. Let us put our experience to work for your family to help you find the perfect place for them to call home, with compassion, integrity, and at absolutely no charge to you.

To successfully deliver lasting results, we approach senior care placement from a holistic, family-centric approach. While we are assessing your loved one's physical, emotional, and social needs and wishes, we consider your needs as well. We begin with a complete evaluation of your senior's unique circumstances, where we look at their past and current medical history. We meet directly with them to understand their hopes and desires and what they would like to see from their care placement. It is crucial to find the right fit that balances their need for medical attention and monitoring and their ability to live a meaningful and happy life in their new home.

For the family, we want to understand what your budget for senior care placement looks like, how far you are willing to travel for visits, and what type and amount of feedback do you need from the community. We spend dedicated time building relationships with assisted living and Dementia care communities in Bucks County and Central Bucks. Our experience, knowledge of the Lehigh Valley and Upper Bucks senior care landscape, and our focus on providing meaningful care for seniors and their families allow us to find the perfect homes for our clients at no cost to them.

We are members of the Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, Lehigh Valley Aging in Place, Society of Certified Senior Advisors, NPRA, and are Certified Dementia Practitioners. 

If you have a loved one in the Bucks County and Central Bucks area in need of assisted living or Dementia care placement, contact us today. We can help you find the senior care community for your loved one and help you secure financial support to mitigate the costs associated with long-term care.
