We help guide seniors and their families to excellent outcomes. Don Minter previously worked ten-plus years as a food and beverage director in a senior community and developed a heart for working with this age group. His father suffered from Alzheimer’s, and Don had to juggle his father’s needs with his full time career, so he knows the challenges that families face. Elaine Minter is a pharmacist and has a decade of experience in long-term care.
Q: Why did you choose Senior Care Authority as your next career path?
A: The challenges Don faced with caring for a sick and aging parent made him wish for someone to help guide him through the complexities of the senior care world. Our goal is to know the systems inside and out, which can help families make informed decisions. Don is a Certified Senior Advisor and a Certified Dementia Practitioner and keeps current with continuing education to help people navigate the often confusing options out there.
Q: Explain your services.
A: We meet the person wherever they are in their journey and help devise the best next steps. We offer placement assistance for independent living, assisted living and memory care at no charge to our clients. We also specialize in elder care consulting where we can help with situations such as skilled nursing placement, family mediation, community education and a plethora of other topics that affect our region’s seniors.
Q: What types of factors differentiate one senior community from another?
A: We research each community in depth to understand the level of care they can provide for our clients. Every place is different, so before we set up any tours with our clients, we ensure that the community can fit the individual’s unique needs. We accompany them on the tours and help them weigh their options to make an informed decision. Once they move in, we follow up to make sure it’s a good fit. All of this is at no charge to the private-pay independent, assisted living and memory care client
