Melanie Lockerby

Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® and Care Transition Manager
Owner Placeholder

My passion is sharing my knowledge and resources with seniors and their families, so they don’t experience the same overwhelming feeling I had when I was trying to find resources and care support for my parents. It’s very rewarding to make the transition into a new community smoother for the entire family by following up at every step - even after they move. It’s important that they are settling well into their new home and feel comfortable with the community.
I love getting to know my clients - not just their care needs, but their likes, dislikes, interests, and hobbies, so I can help them find a community that fits their lifestyle and feels welcoming. I have great compassion for our senior community and treat them as one of the family, making sure they feel supported and heard throughout the process.
After learning about our CarePatrol client. I research different communities and services that will best meet their needs, finances, care, and location. To save you time, I reach out to communities to be sure it is a good fit and confirm availability, then I schedule tours of appropriate places and accompany you on those tours to make sure you’re able to get your questions answered. All of my personalized services are at no cost to your family.
My team calls me the problem solver. I think outside the box to find creative solutions for your family and loved ones, whatever the situation. I build trusted relations with the Senior Care Communities, including assisted living, independent senior living, memory care and in-home care partners, and outside resources to provide the best in senior care solutions.
