There are nearly 500 assisted living facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and they vary wildly in terms of quality and service.

Seniors age 70 to 79 are the fastest growing population group in North Central Texas, according to the North Central Texas Council of Governments. So it’s no surprise that more and more adult children here are seeking care and living options for their elderly parents. In an effort to help guide them to the best care options for their loved ones, John Alagood has opened a Senior Care Authority office serving the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

A Certified Senior Advisor with a background in crisis management, Alagood brings compassion and knowledge to his work with families and seniors. His crisis experience enables him to help families make courageous and informed decisions under difficult circumstances, he said.

Senior Care Authority provides hands-on assistance to families and seniors seeking the best care options at independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing and residential care facilities.

“It shouldn’t be so difficult to find the best senior living options,” Alagood said. “But there are nearly 500 assisted living facilities alone in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and they vary wildly in terms of quality and service. Our goal is to help families sort through all the options and guide them to the best care and living solutions to meet their needs.”

Senior Care Authority Advisors go through extensive training and spend many hours inspecting locations, meeting with staff and reviewing state reports for any citations or complaints issued against them.

Alagood was attracted to Senior Care Authority’s personal, full-service approach. Senior Care Advisors meet one-on-one with families to assess their needs, budget requirements and personal preferences.

“We do a lot of listening to gain an understanding of each family’s unique circumstances,” he said. “We then schedule and accompany them on visits to selected facilities, assist them with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with the senior after they’ve moved in."

Senior Care Authority serves the entire greater Dallas-Fort Worth region, including the following counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant, Delta, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, and Wise.

Services are at no charge to families, as Senior Care Authority Advisors typically receive a commission from the community the family selects.
