During Alzheimer’s, Brain Awareness Month, Assisted Living Locators Encourages Families To Reassess Loved One’s Dementia Care Situation

2020-06-02T10:07:35-04:00June 2nd, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

Company’s Certified Dementia Care Advisors Provide Free Assessment, Guidance During COVID-19.

PHOENIX — Every June, advocates, volunteers, health professionals, caregivers, and family members come together to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and brain awareness. Supporters wear purple in solidarity for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia on The Longest Day, June 20.

Assisted Living Locators, a leading nationwide senior placement and referral service, is encouraging families to use the month of June as a time to reassess their loved one’s dementia care situation. The company is the only senor placement service with dementia care system-certification that helps families find, at no cost, independent living, assisted living, and memory care options.

“Deciding where and when to place an aging loved one is far more complicated when they have some form of dementia, and especially during a global pandemic,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN.  “Several factors go into choosing a long-term care community for a dementia patient. Due to their decreased cognitive ability, they may also require additional assistance and consideration during COVID-19.

A needs assessment conducted by a knowledgeable professional is usually the first step in moving a loved one with dementia to senior living,” explained Olea. “Our assessments focus on developing a deeper understanding of a senior’s cognitive condition as it relates to their ability to complete activities of daily living (ADLs) with or without partial or total assistance.”

Olea added that Assisted Living Locators certified dementia care advisors provide an in-depth assessment of all the client’s needs, along with thoughtful analysis and recommendations for best-fit care options. Families can begin their assessment process with an easy-to-use online tool on Assisted Living Locators website, that is followed up with a virtual in-take interview by phone or video call.

“For those with loved ones battling Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia at home during COVID-19, this may be an extremely challenging time,” said Olea.  “While it may seem that group environments like assisted living facilities are not the right choice right now, for many, it’s still the best option. Considering the enhanced safety measures senior living communities are taking, moving into a senior community may make more sense than living alone and not getting adequate care.”

Where Can Seniors Safely Go After Being Discharged from Healthcare Facilities?

2020-04-01T13:45:10-04:00April 1st, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , , |

As demand for COVID-19 beds grows, CarePatrol partners to provide placement services to families in need.

PHOENIX — CarePatrol, the nation’s largest senior placement organization, is partnering with healthcare providers to counsel families on options for moving loved ones to safer environments in order to make room for COVID-19 patients.

“When it comes to our vulnerable senior population, being discharged from a hospital or healthcare facility and going somewhere safe comes with incredible responsibilities,” said Becky Bongiovanni, Certified Senior Advisor and Brand President of CarePatrol. “There are important added measures we are taking to still get care for loved ones while our population at-large is also being told to shelter-in-place.”

The franchise network has introduced virtual consultations with families, offering online tours of senior communities at the same time that those facilities are taking added precautionary measures to keep their residents safe.

“During this time of uncertainty, our locations are continuing to work closely with our network of over 32,000 senior living communities across the nation and we are supporting families making difficult care decisions in order to prevent a worse situation for a loved one,” said Bongiovanni. “It is also our desire to support our healthcare workers who are the heroes on the front line.  Recently, CarePatrol locations have started donating hand sanitizers, face masks and meals to local healthcare workers. We will continue to support case managers with timely and safer discharges. We want to do what we can to relieve their burden by counseling families to find safer care options expeditiously.”

And for families hesitant to move a loved one into a community during the pandemic, CarePatrol owners are working closely with ComForCare franchisees across the country to arrange for in-home care as an alternative.

CarePatrol’s local senior care advisors work with families free of charge to find quality, top-rated assisted living, independent living, memory care, nursing homes and in-home care. The senior advisors meet with families, now virtually, to assess a client’s care level, financial needs and general preferred locations before recommending the best care options. CarePatrol has the largest network of senior living communities nationwide.

In Support of National Invest In Veterans Week, Assisted Living Locators Offers 10 Percent Initial Franchise Fee Discount to Encourage Veteran Business Owners

2020-03-02T10:00:02-05:00March 2nd, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — In support of National Invest In Veterans Week, March 1 – 7,  Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral franchisor, announced today it is offering veterans a 10 percent initial franchise fee discount to encourage and honor aspiring veteran business owners.

Assisted Living Locators is a veteran-friendly franchisor with an affordable, low-cost franchise fee, a 10 percent veteran discount, and comprehensive training and mentorship platform, according to Founder and CEO RN Angela Olea. With 130 franchisees in 36 states and the District of Columbia, the company is ranked in Entrepreneur’s 2020 Franchise 500®, Franchise Business Review’s 2020 Top Franchises Report and the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies.

Veterans are buying into franchises at a record pace. According to the International Franchise Association, one of every seven franchises in America is owned by a veteran. “Veterans make great franchisees because they have the skills it takes to own and run a successful business – a mixture of leadership, hard work and dedication, and the ability to follow systems and procedures,” stated Olea.

“Franchising can be a tremendous opportunity for veterans because the business framework is already in place,” she explained. “As an established, top-ranked senior placement brand, Assisted Living Locators offers the entire package for aspiring veteran business owners. Not only do we have a proven, successful business model, but we also offer exceptional training and support for our franchisees.”

Olea noted that some of their best Assisted Living Locators franchisees are veterans, such as Arizona franchisee Dustin Baker, recently named Franchise Business Review’s 2019 Rock Star Franchise Owner.

Baker served in the United States Army as a combat medic in an artillery unit during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was also an administrative supervisor at an outpatient surgical ward at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX.

As a top Assisted Living Locators franchise producer, Baker helps and mentors his fellow franchisees and also passionately cares for his senior clients and families, the company and community.

“After my career as a combat medic ended, I wanted to own a business that would make a positive impact on my community,” said Baker. “My journey in helping and serving others led me to the role of Assisted Living Locators franchise owner to provide care and guidance to seniors and families in my community.”

“As thousands of men and women return home from war, it is important to acknowledge the skills they have acquired during their military careers,” Olea added. “They operate their businesses the same way they served their country, with integrity and dedication, and possess the strong characteristics that make an outstanding franchise entrepreneur. We encourage them to join our organization.”

Assisted Living Locators Partners With Rehburg Life Settlements To Provide Families With Opportunity to Help Pay For Long Term Care

2020-02-11T10:46:23-05:00February 11th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

First-Of-Its-Kind Collaboration Aims To Offer Seniors Alternative Funding Solution For Senior Living Expenses.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior care placement and referral service, announced they’ve partnered with Rehburg Life Settlements, a leading, nationally licensed life settlement brokerage, to provide families with an opportunity to help pay for long term care.

A life insurance settlement is a financial transaction that enables qualified life insurance policy owners to receive a cash payout on their life insurance coverage by selling it to interested buyers.

This first-of-its-kind collaboration offers seniors and their families an alternative funding solution for senior living expenses such as in-home care, assisted living or memory care, according to Assisted Living Locators CEO RN Angela Olea.

“As 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day, older Americans face both financial and health care challenges,” Olea stated. “Our local senior care advisors are on the frontlines in their communities every day helping guide families to the right care solution that meets their financial needs. By partnering with Rehburg Life Settlements, we can provide our clients with an important alternative funding solution that can help pay for long term care.”

“According to the Insurance Studies Institute, 500,000 seniors a year lapse their life insurance policies, translating to over $100 billion in policy value,” explained Lisa Rehburg, president of Rehburg Life Insurance Settlements. “That is a lot of potential funds that seniors are giving up, for nothing, each year. Additionally, 90% of seniors who have let a policy lapse would have considered selling it had they known life insurance settlements existed.

We help clients benefit from life insurance policies they no longer need or can afford,” said Rehburg. “Life insurance settlements can be a good option for them to benefit from their ‘hidden’ asset and help them pay for senior living expenses.”

CarePatrol of Northeast Ohio Franchise Owners Receive 2019 Franchisee of the Year Award

2020-01-21T10:25:01-05:00January 21st, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Kevin and Cilla Buck honored with prestigious award at CarePatrol’s annual franchise conference.

PHOENIX— Northeast Ohio CarePatrol franchise owners, Kevin and Cilla Buck, were awarded the 2019 Franchisee of the Year award at CarePatrol’s annual convention in Phoenix, Arizona on January 11.

The Bucks were recognized out of 150 locations for being high-level producers in the franchise system, providing a top of the line service for their clients, and displaying excellence in leadership, performance and compliance.

“Kevin and Cilla are the kind of franchise owners you want serving in your network every day,” said Becky Bongiovanni, president of CarePatrol. “They truly enjoy helping people and treat every family as if they are assisting their own parents. Every day they strive to go above and beyond to make sure everyone is placed where they need to be.”

Cilla was working as a teacher and Kevin was in operations management before they were ready to do something different. CarePatrol seemed to be that right fit where they could help people with a need and be compensated while doing so. They opened their first location in 2013 and added a second CarePatrol franchise in 2016.

“Having gone through this with our own parents, we both find great joy in being an expert resource for people navigating the confusing landscape of senior care,” said Kevin. “Being recognized as Franchisee of the Year is extremely gratifying, and with CarePatrol’s support, we will continue to work hard to assess our client’s needs, concerns and preferences before recommending appropriate levels of care.”
