Befuddled? Confused? Senior Care Placement is You Answer!

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

A Senior Connection is a placement agency dedicated to providing seniors with dignified, quality care.  Whether you and your family are seeking a residential care community, in-home care, hospice, or need dementia care, our team can assist.  Our Care Coordinators are your advocate; making sure you receive fair care pricing, quality service, and education on the senior living industry.  If you don’t know where to turn or simply have questions, our team is here to guide you.  Offering a free service to families often confuses people, and so many placement agencies have different agendas it can be difficult to know who to work with.  A Senior Connection holds each of our staff & fellow senior care providers to the highest ethical standards and business practices.  So why partner with ASC?

Senior moves are a very emotional time for everyone involved, and our team understands this.  From the minute you contact our team, we will discuss you and your family’s needs, contact medical professionals for the necessary documentation, and determine what type of care is best.  Throughout this research process we will keep you updated, and take the time to answer any and all questions you may have.  Our care coordinators will present a few care options and accompany you on tours.  This level of community case management and service is unique to A Senior Connection, and saves an average of 20+ hours of research for you.

Many families decide to go it alone in the senior living process without sufficient industry knowledge to combat rate hikes.  A Senior Connection has taken years to develop and continually monitor relationships with care providers in the Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, & Nevada counties.  By conducting regular site visits and monitoring the State of California’s licensing and citation site, we only work with communities of the highest standards at all pay rates.  With our expertise, we understand market prices, and can even negotiate pricing on behalf of our clients in certain circumstances.  Our Care Coordinators receive continual training for regulations on Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs).  This “buyer’s agent” power saves you time, money, and many headaches. 

While a main focus is on the senior living industry, our care coordinators at A Senior Connection understand the emotional, financial, & legal complications that occur alongside a care transition.  Whether you need assistance with the ALW Waiver Program, VA Aid & Attendance, conservatorship filing, or want access to a support community, our team will find and guide you through the necessary resources.  If it is a service—such as legal advice—that we cannot help you with, we have verified and vetted community partners who we will connect you with.  Our work doesn’t cease when your loved one has found care either.  If two years pass and hospice care is now required, call our team.  You won’t find a more caring, compassionate team than ours. 

The State of California has no regulations on placement agencies and very few laws regulating senior placement agencies.  Locally, some placement groups operate without a business license and do not have insurance.  A Senior Connection is professionally bonded & insured, we are HIPPA and PHI compliant, and we follow the protocols and standards set forth by the National Placement and Referral Alliance.  We have been serving Sacramento’s seniors with our business license since 2014. 

Our mission is to be a leader in providing innovative solutions with ethical practices to support the transition of any patient.  We are managed where a culture of integrity comes first, our employees are valued, and our core values drive our team to be leaders in senior care ethics.  Due to placement agencies not being regulated or governed by any state agency, our team knows families are often provided misguided information or get poor assistance via online placement agencies.  Many online or other placement agencies farm out your personal, medical, and contact info to 50+ communities, in turn leaving you bombarded with hundreds of sales calls that you should not have to deal with. Our customized one-on-one assistance is designed with you in mind, and utilizes the whole person care approach to senior living & care.

“‘Thank You' does not seem adequate for all of the help that you gave our family during this difficult time. The time you took understanding who our mother is as a person, her medical and emotional needs was remarkable. Your willingness to go the extra step and take us to visit the various places was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. You were always available for all our many questions, which at times were many. My mom is in a wonderful caring home, thank you thank you!! You took the time to make sure it was the right fit for her and the help she needed. She is really enjoying the flower that you brought her when you stopped to visit her. We truly appreciate all that you did for us and our mom.”—John and Sue
