About Elder Answers

Welcome to Elder Answers. If you’re searching for the right type of care facility or care environment for your loved one, you’ve come to the right place. I’m happy you found us.

Since 2008 when I began working with A Place for Mom (if you’ve been searching, you’ve no doubt come upon them), I knew my passion was helping families understand elder care in San Diego County and finding the most appropriate care for their loved ones.

My time at A Place for Mom was limited to 6 years once their independently owned service became a large multinational enterprise that, in my opinion, began to value profit over service. 

So in 2015 I started Elder Answers. 

My experience is not just professional, but personal. My father passed away in November 2022 after living successfully with Type 1 diabetes for over 60 years. His failing kidneys and heart finally got the better of him, although his mind was sharp until his last days. 

My mother passed away in January 2023 after suffering for years with Alzheimer’s. They were in an assisted living community in the Bay Area until we moved my mom to a memory care community here in San Diego County for what turned out to be her final days.

We’re not a franchise, we’re not a national company with advisors out of the San Diego County area. We are individuals who know senior care in San Diego County and who truly care about your loved ones well being.

Thank you for contacting us to find the most appropriate placement for your loved one. It’s our pleasure to be of service.
