My goal is simple: to improve on the experience my family went through in finding care for our father.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
With over 1,000 licensed assisted living locations in the Phoenix Metro area, finding the right residential care for a loved one can be a daunting task. Just ask Steve Gilbert. Based on the difficulties he experienced searching for assisted living for his father, Gilbert opened a Senior Care Authority office serving the Phoenix Metro area. His mission: To be a trusted advisor to families seeking the best care and living options for their loved ones.
Senior Care Authority provides hands-on assistance to families and seniors seeking top-quality independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and residential care homes.
“My goal is simple – to improve on the experience my family went through in finding care for our father. I’ve spent countless hours personally visiting and assessing hundreds of care homes and communities across Phoenix so other families don’t have to,” Gilbert said.
“We also know about availability, pricing and level of care provided,” Gilbert said. “We don’t just hand clients a list of facility names; we meet one-on-one with families to get a full understanding of their needs and preferences. We then schedule and accompany them on visits to pre-approved facilities, assist them with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up after they’ve moved in.”
Gilbert recently completed a certification program to become a Nationally Certified Readmission Prevention Professional (NCRP). He is one of the first healthcare leaders in the state to receive this prestigious honor, which is highly regarded by hospitals, which now are penalized financially if patients are admitted unnecessarily to the hospital.
Prior to becoming a Senior Care Authority advisor, Steve spent more than 22 years in the financial services industry helping customers achieve their financial goals. He now applies his needs assessment and problem solving skills to helping seniors and their families find the right residential communities in the Phoenix Metro Area. Steve’s wife and business partner, Katy, has more than 24 years of experience in the social services and healthcare industry, so together they have over 45 years of experience in social work, healthcare and financial services.
Gilbert provides his services at no charge to families; as Senior Care Authority Advisors typically receive a commission from the community the family selects.
Gilbert’s territory covers Metro Phoenix, Prescott, Sedona and Flagstaff (Apache, Coconino, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo and Yavapai counties). For more information about Senior Care Authority of Phoenix Metro, visit http://www.seniorcareauthority.com/phoenixmetro/ or call (888) 624-8587.
