Do you need help finding a senior community or facility in the Denver area, for yourself or someone you love? If so, a senior advisor can be a great resource and someone you can rely on throughout the entire process, from initial research to moving day.

What Is A Senior Advisor In Denver
Senior advisors (which are also known as “senior living advisors” and “senior care advisors”) help seniors and/or their families find appropriate places to live. These include: independent living, assisted living, memory care, residential care facilities, continuing care retirement communities, and nursing homes.

What Does A Senior Advisor In Denver Do
Senior advisors in the Denver metro area offer a range of services. Some advisors simply give you a list of communities and facilities, based on questions that you answered in an online form. Other senior advisors meet with you, get to know your situation, and narrow down your choices to 3-5 of the best communities or facilities for you. These senior advisors will often schedule tours and accompany you on your visits. They might even help coordinate some or all aspects of your move.

Who Pays A Senior Advisor In Denver
Most senior advisors don’t charge seniors or their families. Instead, the advisors are paid by the community or facility when a resident moves in. This fee is often referred to as a “referral fee” or “placement fee.” There’s nothing wrong with this arrangement – as long as you make sure that you’re working with a diligent, ethical senior advisor who will present you with the best senior living options.

While this type of arrangement is fairly standard in the Denver area, there are other senior advisors who will charge you directly (by the hour or the project) for their services.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Senior Advisor In Denver
The main benefit of working with a senior advisor is that you can choose the right place the first time, and potentially avoid a double move. In addition, a senior advisor can save you time, and potentially money, by negotiating more favorable terms with the facility. Perhaps most importantly, a senior advisor can provide emotional support, through what is often a very challenging time.

Can You Work With A Senior Advisor If You Don’t Live In Denver
You can absolutely work with a senior advisor in the Denver metro area, even if you don’t live here. If you’re a senior looking to move to the Denver area, a senior advisor can be extremely helpful in introducing you not only to different senior communities and facilities, but also to the different areas and neighborhoods in Denver.

If you’re a family member living out of town (or out of state) who needs help finding an appropriate setting for someone you love in the Denver area, working with a senior advisor is the way to go. You can communicate with a senior advisor by phone, e-mail, and text to narrow down your options. A senior advisor can then schedule tours of 3-5 senior communities or facilities (back to back) and accompany you on the visits.

What Are Certified Senior Advisors In Denver
The term “certified senior advisors,” refers to a specific certification that’s offered by the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, a national organization that was founded in 1997. The certified senior advisor designation isn’t specific to senior living advisors and senior care advisors. It can be earned by any type of professional who works with seniors, such as financial planners, estate attorneys, mortgage brokers, and more.
