Excellence in Long Term Care Communities 

We at Concierge Care Advisors understand the importance of high standards, not to mention state and federal rules and laws that protect seniors and other vulnerable adults. The recently publicized The Seattle Times front page story and  Seniors for Sale series is a sad example that harmed the reputation of the entire long term care community. We know that the entire Adult Family Home and long term care community seek to provide the quality care with clean, safe and well-equipped facilities, well-trained staff, healthy food and activities.

Adult Family Homes are important to us, and provide an important long term care option for seniors and other vulnerable adults.  We will continue to refer to AFHs and to all top-quality long term care communities. That is our message to the public.

We will support our Provider Partners, knowing that when we work collectively to place the safety and security of seniors above all else, we protect both our clients and improve outcomes for everyone. Every person, business and agency providing services to Seniors must redouble our efforts. We will continue to lead reforms in the placement and referral industry, and ask others to lead in their respective fields. Collectively, we will raise the bar and with it, the public’s confidence in long term care options.
