Senior Lifestyles Connections, LLC, base out of East Pittsburgh, has been helping older adults with placement in assisted living, personal care, independent living and memory/Alzheimers' care facilities since 2007, yet many seniors still don't know about this valuable service. "Oftentimes, people are faced with a situation like this all of a sudden and are forced to deal with it quickly - and, as a result, it's easy to make hasty decisions that isn't in the best interest of their loved one over the short or long term," says owner Stan Olszewski, who has been doing senior placement for about 10 years. "I'm kind of like a real estate agent in that I help people find desirable places to live in the area they want to be in and in the price range they can afford."
Since assisted living and personal care facilities are all paid for out-of-pocket, Senior Lifestyle Connections does the work of researching and tracking down financial assistance to help offset the cost of living arrangements that seniors choose.
Senior Lifestyle Connections covers a 60-mile radius of the greater Pittsburgh area and works with about 210 senior communities that their clients can choose from. "We know these communities very well and are able to communicate with them to make sure the person we're recommending is a good fit for the facility," Stan added. "We explore options that geographically and financially meet the residents' specific needs and we work as an advocate for the family."
Senior Lifestyle Connections is able to offer its services free of charge to its clients because they receive a one-time commission from the facilities after a resident is comfortably and happily established there for 30 days.
With this in mind, it makes good sense to turn to Senior Lifestyle Connections for help with placing your loved one in the best facility possible. "Why would you attempt to do this yourself when you can use a knowledgeable service that can do all the research for you?" Stan asks. "It's especially valuable for people who are faced with being discharged from the hospital but they can't return home. We can help people cut through all the information and get them out looking at places the same day."
Stan is available to speak to groups. To inquire or to learn more about his services, call 724-787-7030, email email@example.com or visit www.seniorhelpfree.com. The phone is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
