"I want to thank you for all your recent help for my wife and myself. I don't know what we would have done without you.

When my wife had a sudden, unexpected emergency condition, was hospitalized, and we were told she would have to remain in a skilled nursing facility for the rest of her life, I was so shocked I could not think where to begin. Thank God I was referred to you. 

When I told you I would want to immediately sell our large home and move near wherever my wife would be you suggested a Continuing Care Retirement Community for both of us. It was not far from where we lived. My wife could be in the Skilled Nursing section there which was rated as one of the best around. And I could be in an independent apartment there. With meals in the dining room, apartment cleaned, bed changed and laundry done for me. So I could concentrate on my wife. 

You arranged for my wife to be taken there from the hospital. For me to be given an apartment there right away. And for a realtor who, you said was the best, from our town's premiere real estate office to sell my house. He was the best. And the house sold quickly and for more than I expected.

I had a number of collections of things, and a house full of furniture and artwork and was given help with what to keep and what to sell and what to give and what to donate. You all had an estate sales person and anyone else I needed come to help me. And the moving company you recommended went the extra mile just like you do.

I was amazed that it was all handled so smoothly and so very well. Now I just walk across the campus to see and be with my wife.

My hat is off to you."

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. Why do I need to find a facility through Living Options?  Can't I just find one on my own?  
A. You will not find a comprehensive list of senior care facilities in any Yellow Pages or other similar directory.  Nor does any Senior Center have a list of all the facilities in any area.  Living Options, on the other hand, has extensive information on the facilities in the entire Bay Area.  We are local people working with seniors through Living Options to find their perfect home for 16 years.  Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties alone have 1500 senior facilities of all types.  There are many, many more throughout the entire Bay Area.

Q. What do you charge clients for your services?
A. Nothing. We are a FREE referral service. We have no hidden charges. Finding a senior care facility through us won't cost you anything.

Q.  What are Independent Living Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities, Board and Care Homes, Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Alzheimer's Facilities, or Skilled Nursing Homes?
Please see "Facility Types".

Q.  What does the monthly price include?
A.The monthly price includes rent, utilities, all meals, snacks, weekly apartment cleaning and laundry service and a front desk attendant who accepts mail and packages, takes messages and screens visitors, permitting entrance to authorized persons only.  Also included are all activities and entertainment and some transportation. Some facilities also have beauty ships, hobby or activity rooms, gymnasiums, etc.

Q. How do I figure out which type of facility is best for me?

A.  Many large facilities have beauty salons on the premises and transportation for other kinds of trips.  Other facilities will  provide you with transportation for these types of errands.  

Q. What if I change my mind? How can I get out of my rental contract?
A. Except for homes in which you invest with a "buy in" such as a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community), the terms of your lease are month to month. If you don't wish to be in that facility any longer, you simply give a 30-day notice and we will help you find something else.
