Margaret Roberts states, “Adult Care Hunters, LLC, is locally owned and both owners have nearly 20 years of experience each in the area of senior care. We are a fullservice agency that helps narrow down the best independent living or assisted living options for seniors over the age of 65. We know where the best places are because we’ve been there.”
They prescreen the communities and maintain a presence, keep track of changes in management, availability, amenities and rates and help negotiate to get the best possible rate. They do not charge clients, but instead get a commission from the communities.
“We are not a listing agency, meaning we will not email or mail you a list of places to check out on your own,” says Roberts. “We go with you to look at the best options and make sure all of your questions are being answered. You also won’t get a hard sales pitch from the marketing team because they know you are with an agent.”
