Does the thought of physically moving your family member or friend to an assisted living facility exhaust you? First you have to find the right place, which can be tricky because everyone wants you to move in, that’s their job. It’s not their job to tell you why your family member or friend might be asked to leave. And then there are the FREE housing services that don’t charge families but are paid by facilities who offer them finder’s fees. Who do these free services represent, it’s not you the client, it’s the housing facilities that pay them and not everyone pays so you may not see the best care community for your loved one. It’s better to work with a housing expert that YOU pay so you know that your best interest and the interest of your family member is the most important factor, not money being exchanged without disclosure.
