Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
 With a phone call (206-355-8965) to our experienced Eldercare Consultants. We will do an assessment of your loved one's medical, social, and financial needs.
  • We will set up a time to meet to discuss your individual needs
  • We will follow up with a synopsis of our meeting and a list of next steps
  • We will start immediately on the tasks assigned and provide you with regular communication on our progress
Who are you and how long have you been in business?
 Eldercare Consultants is proud to be a locally owned and operated business. We've been helping seniors with their needs since 2006.
What geographic area do you cover?
 We cover the entire Puget Sound area, bringing help to families wherever they live. We also work with families who live outside the local area. We have resources all over the country and can help with a family member who might live in another city or state.
What services do you assist with?
 We do everything we can to keep your loved ones safe, happy and healthy while aging in place. Need an in-home companion, housekeeper, lawn care, lawyer referrals, doctor referrals, transportation, advocate during doctor visits? We can do all that AND find someone to walk the dog, do the laundry, and deliver meals to your door. And if you want to review alternate housing, we know all the communities and will find the perfect fit for you.
Do I need to call around to different retirement homes?
 No, there is no need for you to spend your time calling around different facilities only to find that they are not right for you. We have placed many residents in local communities, and try to match personalities to insure a successful placement. We also have inspection reports, maps, and much more information because we deal with these facilities regularly.
How long does it take to get the services we need?
YOU set the pace. We can often get services to you within 24 hours or we can plan ahead for a time that makes you comfortable. It is an individual choice that we respect.
I don't want to waste your time, what if I change my mind?
 With our free one-hour consultation, together we find out what works best for you. We are here when you need us. If for some reason you do not want to move forward or use suggested services after all, we will simply wish you luck, close your case and file it away. We are only here to help.  We have no long term contracts and understand that needs change.   
Trish was fabulous. Both mom and dad were struggling and I couldn't be everything for them. Talking things over with Trish provided me with information, services and relieved a lot of stress for our family. Trish even got us a great Eldercare lawyer who helped with updating their wills and powers of attorney.
