Action

Steps

Step 1 - Discovery

Jen Dowda will meet with you personally to discuss your
situation: your needs, goals, concerns, geography, preferences, and budget. She will listen to you and help you think through what the best next steps might be for your family, and then help you to come up with a plan for moving forward, whether that involves a move to a new community or staying in the current home with
adjustments.

Step 2 - Decision

We will help implement that plan. If together we decide that
moving is the best option, we will personally take you to see several communities and help you discover the best fit for you/your loved one. If staying home is your/your loved one’s goal, we will discuss all the steps necessary to make sure this can be done safely and successfully, and help you bring in appropriate resources to make that possible.

Step 3 - Action & Follow Up

Once a decision has been reached, we will help you every step along the way as you/your loved one moves to the new home, or
makes whatever changes are necessary for thriving at your/their existing home. Each situation is unique, and we will do whatever we can to make sure that everything is in place (and stays in place) for a successful, safe, and satisfying quality of life.

The Experience of

Walking This Road Alone

The Experience of

Walking This Road With Our Team Beside You

Randomly picking companies to provide in-home services without knowing
much about them

WE have personal relationships with many different in-home services that we have vetted thoroughly and have often even used ourselves for our own loved ones.

Assuming that there is no support out there once you/your loved one has
been given a diagnosis of any type of dementia

WE will come alongside you and
bring in our team of professionals to support you and help you make a plan, for the present and the future.

Entering your phone number on a website in order to obtain information about senior communities, which will result in countless sales calls to you/your loved ones.

WE protect all of your information, NEVER giving it to a community except by your request.

Feeling lost, confused, or overwhelmed as you attempt to navigate the maze of over 90 assisted living communities in the greater Richmond area.

WE guide you every step of the way, choosing several appropriate options and personally touring you to them. As we tour, we help you process and discover the best fit.

Wondering what kinds of supports to stay home might be out
there, with no idea how to really know what the options might be

WE have researched and stay up-to-date with the latest offerings and can suggest services that you might not even know exist, especially with technology improving every day.

Wasting your time touring communities that are too big/too small/too expensive/too far away/too many violations on their record

WE have our initial personal consultation, and are able to pinpoint the best choices for you, as we are extremely familiar with all of the communities.

Missing out on wonderful new communities opening on a regular basis.

WE stay completely abreast of all activity in the area – new facilities being built, ownership or management changes, care violations, expansions, licensure updates, etc.

Judging a community by how it looks or by one person’s experience

WE keep in close contact with all of our families, so we are usually able to offer you personal updates of what a community is truly like, from a current resident or family member.

Depending on a marketer who has the sole job of representing their particular community

WE are compensated by all communities (there is NEVER a cost for you), so we can be completely unbiased and base all of our advice on what is truly best for you/your loved one.
