Living Placement
Since our founding, Seniors First has helped thousands of families find the right out-of-home living situation for their elderly loved one. We intimately understand the challenges that come with relocating your family member, and realize that the process and options can be overwhelming. How do you find an appropriate and cost-effective out-of-home living situation that both you and your loved one will love? Our living placement consulting services will help you narrow the options and locate the best possible living solution.

Our Living Placement Specialist, Kristina Blocker, a Granite Bay resident and owner of Silver Pathways, worked in geriatric psychiatry at a hospital for nine years before starting her own business (formerly known as Dementia Care Advisors) in October 2011. She made the transition because it seemed to her that families needed more help coping with a relative’s dementia or Alzheimer’s disease than did the patients themselves. “I decided to start a business with educating families on what to do and how to cope with dementia, and what to expect when the unexpected happens, how to communicate, that sort of thing,” she said. Blocker started working with Seniors First to provide consultations, assessments, care plans, workshops and support groups related to Alzheimer’s disease, and Seniors First now directs dementia-related calls to her. Kristina consults one-on-one with clients about their family’s unique needs, and provide with a wealth of information and referrals to care communities that best fit their situation.

Blocker also provides monthly workshops – understanding the seven stages and living as a caregiver.

What our clients say about Seniors First’s living placement services:

I was clueless about where to start or what to do to help my parents when I called Seniors First, and was immediately referred to a placement specialist. Our placement specialist provided an overall picture of what to look for, help set priorities, and offered support and encouragement.
