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. Leave the administrative work to us. 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.

Continuing Care Assessments

Personalized support that is really personalized. How can you trust an advisor with quotas? A Senior Advisor with "quotas" is something that you will never find at CarePatrol. The only “quota” we demand is satisfied families. Your advisor will be there for you when you need them - even after you make your decision. Long after move-in day, we’ll still be there with regular check-ins to ensure your loved one’s needs are being met.

Scott Dow

Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®
Owner Placeholder

"Families know they can trust me because my heart is to help their loved one(s) find a safe and fulfilling place to live."

Scott considers it a blessing and a privilege to be able to help seniors and their families during a time when many emotional and practical issues must be considered and worked through.  He carefully evaluates his client's care needs, concerns and preferences to establish the appropriate level of care. Is Independent Living appropriate or should Assisted be considered? Are there cognitive issues that might bring Memory Care into the discussion? From there, hobbies, interests and financial means are considered to find the best possible matches. We arrange and accompany you on tours, facilitating the entire decision making process.
Scott went through the same daunting experiences recently with his mother, an experience that gave him the passion that he has today to help families.
