Education, Training & Certifications: Certified in Dementia & Mental Health training, HIPAA and CCA. Attended Skagit Valley College.

Contact: (425) 802-6613 or mary@conciergecareadvisors.com

As an industry insider, Mary Cordova spent five years as vice president and director of referral services for another placement and referral agency, and as a distributor of durable medical equipment for more than two decades, selling supplies to hospitals, nursing homes and physicians. She also served as an executive director in a memory care community.

But Mary wanted to put seniors first in all aspects and to always do what is right, not just what was profitable, so she sought out entrepreneur Marc Lilly and the two co-founded Concierge Care Advisors, where their ‘Agenda Number One’ is to protect vulnerable seniors and their families. Mary wanted to ensure that CCA would rise above the rest by honestly and equitably letting seniors and their families know all their options, not just the most profitable for referral agencies. And they wanted to do more than hand nervous and overwhelmed families a list of facilities; they wanted to provide true “Concierge Care”, offering personal service and carefully vetted recommendations. Mary wanted to elevate the industry where health providers view placement and referral agencies as an extension when patients leave hospitals and rehabilitation units in order to collectively support Seniors through the aging process, which can be so overwhelming.

Born and raised in Mountlake Terrace as the ninth child of ten in her family, Mary benefitted from a multi-generational household after her grandmother moved in to help care for the family. That loving relationship permeates Mary’s passion for people, especially Seniors and those who have fallen on hard times.

Credentials: HIPAA Certified and CCA certified

Contact: (425) 263-1106 or teresa@conciergecareadvisors.com

Teresa’s love for seniors started as a young child. Her grandfather was shell shocked in WWI causing him to talk for lengthy periods of time, usually making up silly stories, so her job became his “listener” during family events.

As a teen Teresa volunteered in nursing homes, passing water bottles and visiting the elderly in their rooms. Teresa eventually became a nursing assistant and worked in the nursing homes providing care for others.

As her experience grew, she moved into social services and worked for a short time as a discharge planner, discharging people from the nursing home and back to the community.

Teresa’s spent the past six years doing direct admissions for skilled nursing, working closely with doctor’s offices, hospitals, families and clients understanding what the needs and concerns are. She knows first-hand how difficult it is to place a loved one. She cared for her mother in law, who had Alzheimer’s Disease for four years before having to make the decision to place her in an alternate living situation.

It is with compassion and experience that she will help you navigate the tangle of long term care options so that you won’t have to do it alone.

In her spare time Teresa enjoys gardening, beach-combing and playing with her grand kids.
