A senior living advisor sometimes referred to as a senior living care professional, senior care consultant, eldercare advisor, or senior living broker is a professional who assists individuals and their families navigate the process of finding the best housing option for a senior family member’s needs and budget when they’re looking towards the next life step.
These professionals work for an advisor company or work independently and have an established network of communities in the area that they know, as well as a firm familiarity with the world of senior living and geriatric care.
