Senior living consultants are a great way for families, seniors, baby boomers and loved ones to locate senior communities and services. All too often seniors and their loved ones can get bogged down with the choices or feel that there are too few choices for senior living in their area. With the help of a senior living consultant or non-profit senior living consultant service, finding the right community or caregiver can be easy. Here are 4 reasons to use a senior living consultant.


Senior living consultants generally understand the issues facing baby boomers and seniors as well as their families. They understand that not every situation is the same or cut and dry. There are special circumstances of every situation. For that reason, using a senior living consultant can be the first step in finding all the alternatives available for your specific situation. Knowing the alternatives and choices available can make decisions on caregiving easier.

Funding Sources

Using a senior living consultant to find senior living communities and care options is a large reason many people choose the consultant option. Another reason is due to the funding sources and resources the consultant has knowledge of. If you need help funding your senior living, retirement living or if you are a senior in need of special help a senior living consultant can put you in touch with the right people to get the help you need and funding you need.

In-Home Options

There is a common misconception that senior living consultants only handle placement and services for senior living communities. A senior living consultant is so much more than that. Senior consultants can help seniors find in-home care options, funding for those options and caregiver placement services to allow seniors to age in place. With hundreds of thousands of senior programs and options it may take a senior consultant to help you find the one that is right for your needs.

Nationwide Service

Another misconception regarding senior living consultants is that they only handle consulting in their particular state, county or region. This is not true. Many senior living consultants have connections nationwide and for that reason offer services for seniors nationwide. By finding a senior living consultant  that handles nationwide issues and alternatives you can be anywhere and still receive the help you need.
