Assisted living is a catch-all term for managed communities of seniors that are low touch and allow a certain amount of independence. If a senior might need help with day-to-day tasks such as meal preparation or managing medication, but are otherwise healthy enough to get on without dedicated medical care, assisted living might be the right choice.
Assisted living communities are typically arranged as large multi-family complexes where seniors have private rooms, suites, or full apartments to themselves, and have common areas and plenty of activities they can participate in. Depending on the community, there could be different sports and recreational activities available, theaters, cafeterias to eat with peers, and more. Optional off-site excursions are often arranged by the staff as well.
The assisted part of assisted living comes from day-to-day care that would be too difficult, time consuming, or even impossible to manage single-handedly for a senior. Hygiene, laundry, and chores are just a few areas they can get help with.

What our customers are saying
I have worked with Concierge Care Advisors many times with my clients. I personally worked with them recently when moving my Dad home from Philadelphia. They are LIFE SAVERS!!!! If you have a family member that needs help finding assisted living, CCA should be your very first call. VERY FIRST call :). There are so many things to think about and consider that I never really knew. They helped me find a great place for my Pops, helped me negotiate with the facility and helped me navigate my emotions as well! It’s a lot and I am forever grateful to Concierge Care Advisors.
Our experience was outstanding! Sally was patient, knowledgeable and quickly was able to put together zoom tours over a couple of days. We appreciated her going to rehab where my mother was so that Mom could also participate in the zoom tours. I can’t say enough about the service. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing people here who genuinely want to help you and your family. I had been struggling for the past year and a half to find my grandmother the care that she needed. I was on my own and had no help from family. I could not get anywhere with the assisted living facilities in my area and my grandmother’s caseworker kept giving me the run around. The day I was given Vannah Roberto’s contact was the day that my grandmother and I finally got the help we needed. She kept in constant contact, explained every step of the process and found my grandmother somewhere to live within 2 weeks! Its been almost a month that my grandmother has moved in to her new home and Vannah still reaches out to make sure she is happy. She really cared about us and I can’t imagine where we’d be if I hadn’t got in touch with her. If you need the help, please reach out to this organization! They are here to help you!
My brother lives in Olympia, WA state and I’m in Fl. Geographical distance made no difference to the superior service I got. My brother was having neurological issues, falling constantly, losing his grasp of reality. His marriage was falling apart as a result and his married daughter , also in Olympia, WA, contacted me in a panic as to what to do, where to turn, who might be able to help. I stumbled upon CCA’s clear and relevant statement of purpose, contacted Chelsea and never looked back. Specializing in senior transition, Chelsea performed a cursory eval on the phone with me first to get a picture of what was going on. Here is the most amazing part of Chelsea’s input: My brother had visited many facilities by himself, didn’t know what questions to ask and found none to his liking. He had to leave the facility he was currently housed in by the end of the month. I expected Chelsea to say waiting lists, financial income, medical needs, all the complicated blocks would prohibit finding a place for my brother in one month’s time. My brother was uncooperative and exhibiting fear, and mental indecisiveness. None of that deterred Chelsea. She was gentle, diplomatic, willing and confident of resources available. Never pressuring. She reached out to set up a conversation meeting with my brother, which he cancelled. His daughter and I were frustrated by my brother’s reluctance given the deadline. Chelsea was not. She teamed up with me and his daughter and provided us with a list of local facilities that would fit my brother’s needs as we described them to her.
His daughter, now more confident in the knowledge that Chelsea had her back, drove her father to a facility located near her and his grand-kids and both agreed it was the best fit…in the nick of time.
You can see how the family dynamics of this unfolded. It took Chelsea, a well seasoned CCA advisor to steer this family to happiness. We are very, VERY grateful.
