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.

About Mike Kearney

michael_kearney

After working for more than 30 years in the corporate world, Mike Kearney has found a way to use his life experiences to help others who are facing life changing decisions for themselves or a family member.

“I have been looking for a career that would allow me to use the skills and experience gained in a long career in sales and marketing to help seniors in need. Senior Care Authority has given me the opportunity to use my strengths and do something good for families.”

Mike returned to the Rochester NY area where he grew up after more than 25 years away. An important part of his decision to return to Rochester was to be closer to his extended family, including aging parents. “I am blessed to come from a large and close family. As our first grandchild arrived, my wife and I realized we could not be happy seeing our grandchildren only a few times a year. At the same time, we both had aging parents and it was important to us to be able to spend more time with them while we still had that opportunity. During this time, we have seen friends and family experience very difficult times making decisions regarding aging loved ones and their ability to age in place.”

Mike’s background in sales and marketing positions him well for assisting seniors to find the right fit. Mike now spends much of his time touring and reviewing local living communities – including assisted living, independent living, dementia and memory care, and residential care homes. He then meets one-on-one with families to assess their needs. He accompanies them on tours of pre-approved facilities, assists them with their negotiations and paperwork, and follows up with the client once the placement has been made.

There is no cost to families for Mike’s placement services. Instead he earns a fee from the facility after a placement is made.
