A Place for Mom: Finding the Proper Placement for Your Elderly Loved One

On a fairly regular basis I get telephone calls asking for a recommendation to a “good” nursing home or assisted living facility. I have to refrain from answering, because though I have brought legal actions against many nursing homes for abuse and neglect, I also know there are plenty of homes out there that can provide good care. I just don’t know who they are.

Today I met with someone who does. Lise Marquis, with A Place For Mom (www.aplaceformom.com), explained to me all the considerations in finding the right placement for an elderly loved one. A Place for Mom provides consultations for senior housing and care options, and has literally hundreds of options including skilled nursing facilities, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, respite care, and board and care homes. And get this, the service is free.

In addition to providing options for housing, Lise can also provide resources for financing, therapy services, and legal services if those aspects of care are needed.

A Place for Mom provides a valuable service to the elderly, and states that it has already helped over 72,000 California seniors. If you are at that place of having to decide where to place a loved one (mom or dad), I would suggest you give Lise a call. She can be reached at (866) 691-2427.
