Families First Placement Services - Carl Williams

Carl Williams


Concerned family members oftentimes think of placing their loved ones in an assisted living facility or in a nursing home when a loved one suddenly has a need for long term care.  In some cases, this is warranted, but in other cases the family overreacts and is often not aware of alternative services in the community that can allow the care recipient to remain at home.

On the other hand, if there is no other option, then the facility becomes the choice for the desired care setting.  Sometimes it is difficult for the family to choose a facility for their loved one. This is especially true in the case of dementia where the person needing care has no input and the family is not sure if they are making the right decision.

Choosing a new living residence is a surprisingly difficult process, especially for persons burdened with caring for an aging senior.  My services are also helpful for persons who live far from their loved ones who require care.  My referral services provide significant assistance in narrowing down the choices. And I provide my services free of charge to the family.  I am typically reimbursed through contract with the care facilities I work with.

When matching an individual to a care community, there are many factors to be considered, such as location, cost, current and future care requirements, and amenities.  My referral services can provide all of this, as well as more community-specific information. Were an individual to attempt to gather this information from each of the many assisted living communities in their preferred geographic area, it would take them days of phone calls and meetings. It would also subject them to countless sales pitches in which it would still be difficult to get the information they need.

In addition to the obvious information a family would want, I also have access to information such as pricing variables, occupancy rates, number of residents, resident to staff ratios, proximity to hospitals, family reviews, and resident complaints. Furthermore, my referral services can save families money by helping them to understand how to negotiate with the assisted living residence and making sure they sign-up for the correct level of care.
