I know what you’re going through.

What Kind of San Diego County Elderly Help Do I Provide?

I can help in two ways.

For families wanting to understand their future senior care and senior living choices, I do hourly consultations for a fee.

For families needing help with senior care options right away, I offer placement assistance at no charge. (I’m paid by all the care homes and communities.)

The placement process is explained below.

Assessment – Depending upon timing and your specific needs, I’ll either spend time together on the phone, through email, and/or in person assessing your unique situation and you or your loved one’s care needs.

My assessment will include type of care required, type of environment desired, timing of needed services, budget and financing, preferred location and specific family preferences.

Suggestions and Referrals – Once I’ve gathered all your important data, I’ll put you in touch with several care providers who meet your specific criteria. I will (only with your permission) give your contact information to my suggested providers so you can get all the details you need regarding setting up a personal visit.

I do not recommend, only refer. I will most always suggest at least two providers and most often three to five. The final decision will always be yours.

Visits – You will visit as many or as few of the referred care providers as you would like. I’m happy to schedule visits for you and/or accompany you on your visits if helpful.  And I’m always available by phone, email or text to answer any and all questions. I’ll also provide you with a checklist to use while visiting.

Evaluation and Follow Up – No matter how long it takes, I’ll continue this process until we find the care provider that meets your needs. I can also assist with any logistical details.

Finally, I’ll follow up with the care provider and your family to make sure everything is as it should be in the weeks following any transition. Your feedback is most important to me and I may ask to use your comments and reviews on my website.

What Do I Base My Referrals On?

Personal visits – I personally visit and evaluate every care provider I refer. I look for the specific criteria of each family I assist.
Licensing Criteria – I review all licensing inspection reports and look for any citations or complaints. I question any citations.
Past History – I ask for feedback from families I’ve helped in the past. Your observations, experiences and comments are some of my most important criteria.


Client Testimonials

I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.

Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.

She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.

To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!

At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!

I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.
