SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior care referral and placement agency, announced today it is partnering with Paragon Home Resources, to provide families it works with across the country with valuable home transition services, including relocating loved ones, real estate sales, moving assistance, and sorting and pairing down belongings, if appropriate.
According to Angela Olea CEO RN, Assisted Living Locators is the first U.S. senior care referral and placement agency to add this comprehensive senior care transition solution to its services. “The challenge families with aging parents face today is finding a single source for reliable assistance with this life decision, ranging from navigating care options to the logistical details of the loved one’s move,” she explained. “Our partnership with real estate industry leader Paragon Home Resources, allows our counselors to give greater care to the senior and their family, ensuring an easier and less stressful transition.”
Assisted Living Locators offers a NO COST service for seniors and their families providing expert advice on short and long-term care options, including in-home care, independent living, assisted living and memory care, and retirement apartments.
With the new partnership, Olea stated Paragon’s role will be to provide Assisted Living Locators clients with valuable relocating and real estate services that will help with all aspects of the senior’s transition. With two decades of experience, Paragon offers a suite of services that includes arranging necessary home repairs, assistance with home loans, sorting and moving household belongings, managing an estate sale, selling the home and moving into assisted living.
“We’re excited to partner with Assisted Living Locators and their experienced, compassionate team of eldercare advisors, said Paragon Home Resources CEO Joseph Morabito. “Our alliance offers seniors and their families a broad portfolio of coordinated services that will set a new standard for senior care transition in the industry.”
According to Morabito, the average distance between adult children and their parents is 400 miles. “Many don’t have the ability to help locally and face logistical challenges with the move of their loved one,” he said. “These adult children are thinking how do they sell the family home of 30 years; where do they find a moving company and how do they sort through all their belongings.
Because this can be a stressful time, families need a caring advocate for home transition services,” Morabito explained. “Communication and coordination for various home related services is one of the biggest challenges that families can face, said Olea, which is why Paragon Home Resources approach to assign every family a dedicated, personal Home Resources Coordinator to serve as the single point of contact throughout all facets of the move fits so well with our approach to make the senior’s transition as smooth and as easy as possible.”
Morabito stated Paragon Home Resources also has extensive experience in managing real estate transactions, established relationships with realtors and affiliate mortgage companies and other lenders, and existing relationships with the nation’s top moving companies.
“Paragon Home Resources will provide peace of mind and expert advice throughout the senior’s transition.” Morabito added. “We will communicate with all family and their Assisted Living Locators advisor as much as needed to instill a sense of security and comfort. With years of relocating experience, Paragon provides services that help people move quickly and easily.”
