“8 Steps to Senior Placement”

Elder Care Consulting in North West Phoenix.

Get individualized assistance with your loved one
Sometimes our families just need more help with challenging transitions and decision-making. This may include facilitating essential conversations between family members, home care agency or caregiver selection, connections to valuable resources or regular visitations with a loved one providing "peace of mind" to family members when they are unable to visit themselves.

It can be comforting to have someone partner with you who is outside the emotional landscape of the family, doing research, talking to providers, organizing paperwork, or finding those "needle in a haystack" resources. A go-to person you can turn to when things get overwhelming. Whatever the need, we can customize our services for your family or provide you with vetted referral sources.

Erika Zavislak

I grew up in Phoenix with a younger brother with juvenile diabetes. When I was 26 years old my brother was in a diabetic coma and needed 24-hour care. That was my introduction to nursing facilities and long term care. Later, my father was diagnosed with early Alzheimers and had to be placed in a facility as well. This was before there were special memory care facilities available. I well remember the smells and dim lights of the care homes of the past.

I have acted as both the guardian and conservator for different family members and understand the confusion and difficulty of placing a loved one in a care home or skilled nursing facility. I have had various experiences in life from being a sales representative for pharmaceuticals to receiving a Masters degree in public policy and advocating for children. Well versed in both the healthcare system and the policies in place to protect people within that system, I have turned my attention back to an area close to my heart -- helping seniors find appropriate quality care  for both the loved one and the family can feel good about.

Phoenix has grown quite a bit since my childhood. As part of that growth, the availability and choices of so many more options in residential care can make senior placement somewhat daunting. I welcome the opportunity to help people make the right choice for their loved one.

My personal experiences in trying to find homes for both my parents and brother gives me the ability to understand the challenges and emotional difficulties involved in making those decisions. In addition to my strong background in healthcare and policy knowledge, I am also able to act with compassion and empathy while navigating the process of placing a loved one.
