6 Questions to ask a Senior Advisor/Placement Specialist

family asking questions

Are you considering using the services of an Assisted Living Referral or Placement service like Compass Senior Solutions?

Finding the right assisted living for a loved one can be a long and emotionally draining process. Whether you’re just beginning your search for senior care options or narrowing down your top choices, reach out to Compass Senior Solutions and a senior living advisor is ready to listen and offer guidance. Compass Senior Solutions is committed and with you throughout each step. Let us help you to discover the solutions that fit your loved one’s needs.

Below we share questions to ask and specifics to look for to be prepared. For example, an important question to ask a Senior Advisor service about recommended facility options is whether or not they know the facility’s reputation (i.e. through a resident advocate, other 3rd parties, clients that have moved there). Unfortunately, some advisors may not have the expertise to assess your loved one’s current social and physical care needs, look ahead to their future care needs, and what that will mean financially in care costs. Below are answers we provide all of our clients; and, questions you should make sure you ask any referral agency you choose.

Here are some questions you should always ask an agent:

  1. What is your background in senior care?
    2. Do you refer facilities that don’t give a referral fee?
    3. What experience do you have with Assisted Living Facilities?
    4. Do you tour assisted living facilities with families?
    5. Will you assess my loved one in person?
    6. Do you follow up with us after placement?

While you might receive some good options, sometimes you may not necessarily get the full picture of options available to you. The problem is that many times, they won’t recommend the assisted living facilities or appropriate care facilities, if they don’t receive a referral fee.

That is NEVER the case at Compass Senior Solutions. We will always present the best options for your loved one.
