My experience, frustration, and research laid the groundwork for my decision to switch careers, engage in this business, and become an advocate for others. My goal is to support those who are in the position I found myself when first faced with accessing information and making critical decisions for my Dad, who needed in-home and eventually hospice care. My second personal experience was when I moved my Mom into an Independent Living community closer to where I live. I found it very challenging and time-consuming to research, visit, evaluate multiple facilities to determine which was the right fit. At the time I wished there was a service that could help.
Now there is! I will provide you with an experienced, objective & logical third-party view I wish I could have found when I needed help. I will help you navigate the endless amount of information regarding senior care and be your advocate as you search for the best possible solution for you and your family.
I've spent the last 30 years as an IT Manager and have overseen many projects, emergency operations, and catastrophes in the course of day-to-day operations. Over that time I budgeted, managed, organized and led projects to successful outcomes.
I am the father of three adult children, all successful in their own right. I enjoy anything outdoors - camping, fishing, hunting, Scuba diving and occasionally golf.
SENIOR CARE AUTHORITY COMPANY HISTORY
Senior Care Authority was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.
In 2014, the model was franchised and Senior Care Authority is now a national company with offices throughout the US and Canada. As part of their expansion, they partnered with an eldercare consulting practice who brought another set of senior care services and skills to the company, a great differentiator for Senior Care Authority.
