Placement is a term widely used to describe selecting a housing facility and transitioning there.

Placement Services

In addition to extraordinary care management services, Family Connect Care can also help place your loved one in a residential community, board-and-care facility, transitional care facility, or skilled nursing facility when needed.

We do all the legwork for you, but it’s critical to have a full conversation with us to discuss your parameters and needs, and the needs of your loved ones. We’ll then contact facilities that match your requirements, determine availability and appropriateness based on specific medical circumstances, and help in the transfer and transition process. There is usually no charge for placement services, and only a small charge if an assessment and report are needed.

Why Choose Us?

Free Services

Family Connect Care does not charge for any placement services.

We Advocate for You

Our chief concern is to identify the right placement for the resident, so when budgets are tight, we happily negotiate pricing to advocate for our clients.

Local or Out-of-Town

Whether your loved one is relocating from down the street or across the country, we offer transition care services to make the move as easy as possible.

Placement Options

Southern California

Out-of-State

Ethnic & Cultural

We understand that the decision to place a loved one in a facility can difficult and families want as much information as possible. We are happy to provide this information and to arrange for facility tours.

It is important however to work with us, resisting the temptation to arrange facility visits on your own, which is most often a waste of time and energy. Every facility has its unique characteristics, and we work to understand the person needing placement well to optimally identify the facilities that are most appropriate for his or her particular circumstances.

We specialize in helping families locate residences out of the area or state, most often done when a family member desires to have their loved one within easy visiting distance. This may be a person who lives in Southern California but needs a residence in some other location, or lives out-of-state and needs a place in Southern California.

We not only arrange facility tours and negotiate on behalf of the family, but we can help with travel arrangements including medically appropriate transportation to/from airports and provide traveling caregivers as needed. We also offer transition care services as needed to ease such critical transitions, especially when memory impairments are an issue.

Especially among the chronologically gifted, a person often relates strongly to ethnic or cultural roots. This is even more true when English is not his or her native language. We strive to find the best overall placement for every one of our clients, and that includes recognizing the need to be among others with common backgrounds or experiences, or can communicate in a shared native language.
