We were referred to Life Options for Seniors by a senior care strategist in Sacramento. We were in the process of moving our mother from Nevada and needed help relocating her as well as continuing care for her. Life Options for Seniors worked diligently with my mother to find her new housing and to arrange for the physical move of her property to Sacramento. Life Options has continued to help find the every day things that make life more enjoyable.
I can strongly recommend Life Options for Seniors. They are always available to talk, they have resources for everything I have asked for and they have been consistently patient with my mother. They not only listen, but provide creative solutions and then initiates action.
On behalf of my sister and I, I want to thank you ladies for the expert assistance you provided us in dealing with my father’s complicated situation in Los Angeles. It is difficult to be involved properly in the care of an elder from a distance, but your knowledge and your insights made this transition much easier than it would otherwise have been. Your support as we sorted through the available options kept us on track while my father was in LA and helped us get to what has so far been a successful placement in the Sacramento.
Our family found ourselves in a position of having to find residential care for my father, as a result of a hospital stay. After being in the hospital for five days, we were told by hospital staff that they would not release our father until an antiquate care facility was identified. This is when an Angel named Shelly came into our lives! We would have never known how to even start to look for a suitable place for our father.
I called Shelly and I explained our situation. She went to the hospital to meet with me and my family. After talking to us about our father and what we wanted for him, she got right to work. Within an hour of leaving us, she had set up appointments to tour four facilities for the following day, and three facilities on Saturday. She knew exactly which questions to ask the facilities, which helped us tremendously, as we had no idea what to ask. After touring each facility, she asked us questions and she respected our answers without trying to steer us in a particular direction. We were able to find a facility on our second day, making her happy as well as our family. This showed us a sign of respect!
We felt very comfortable working with her. She has even called to ask how my father is doing! We now feel as if she is a part of our family! I would highly recommend Shelly to any family looking to place a loved one in a care facility.
Life Options for Seniors is a life-saver. I needed to find – on very short notice – a residential care facility for my elderly father. Homa Rostami, with whom I dealt at Life Options for Seniors, is one of the most compassionate, knowledgeable, and responsive professionals I have ever met. She is also a great listener, a quality so important for those dealing with elder issues. She always followed up promptly on my phone calls, provided me with information and advice, and went far beyond the call-of-duty in helping me obtain VA benefits for my father.
Homa made me feel that I wasn’t alone in navigating the complex world of placing an elderly relative whose health is rapidly declining. I would recommend Homa and Life Options for Seniors to any one who finds him/herself in the challenging and heart-wrenching position of having to help an elderly beloved family member move to the next phase in his/her life.
Finding the right care home for a parent is probably one of the most challenging tasks that a family member will encounter. I could not imagine getting through his ordeal without the expert guidance of Life Options for seniors. We had an emergency situation, which required the immediate transitioning of our mother from the hospital to an assisted living facility.
Homa assured us that she could help us find a suitable placement with in our short time frame and she did just that! Homa met with us within hours of our initial contact. After assessing my mother’s needs, she explained different options available to my mother. The next day she arranged for us to tour several facilities for consideration.
Thanks to Homa’s expertise we were able to make a wonderful selection that met our mother’s needs and financial situation. We will forever be grateful to Homa and Life Options for Seniors. If you ever find yourself in this difficult situation I can think of no better company than Life Options for Seniors to help you through this process.
I just wanted to let you know how much Kristen Messer helped us in finding a placement for our dad. To begin with, she had a sparkling personality and is very comfortable to be with. She is knowledgeable and very efficient. When she said she would get back to us with information, it often came sooner than she had promised. When a family is in the process of making such a big decision, having someone follow through with their promises promptly is invaluable. It seemed like with every question we had (and we had many!) that she had an answer or suggestion, or she’d make a phone call to get one to relay to us. I have already given Kristen’s contact information to a friend, and I will continue to do so, as we felt she is the best!

I cannot begin to thank you, Sue Hoppe, for all that you did for my father and me. When I first talked to you, I was so upset and so worried about my father and after talking to you for just a few minutes I felt completely at peace. When you and Chris came over to my house to meet my husband, my father and me, you were both so nice and so easy to talk to that you made the meeting so relaxing and comfortable. You have such a warm and caring personality, that I knew you were going to do all that you could to place my father in the perfect place for him where he would be really happy.
It amazed me that while we were talking that God guided you to think of Sue’s place for my dad. I don’t know what I would have done had God not sent you to me, Thank you so much for your reassurance, encouragement, and help. Keep doing what you’re doing. God needs you to be that special person to those of us who are praying to Him for guidance and help with elderly parents.
Homa was extremely helpful during this difficult time. She acted as a great sounding board and was very responsive to the needs of my mother, Carol. I would recommend Life Options to anyone looking to place a loved one.
LOFS took control of our situation and went right to work clarifying providers who could and those who could not provide proper care for my mom, Mary. They knew where to look and whom to see, in a process that might have taken days to achieve and could have had a disastrous result, both in finances and in emotion. LOFS was diligent in pursuing the resources that were available to us, coming up with a perfect match for our needs.
Recently due to illness, my mother who had been living in her own apartment had to find a place to live where she would get hands on help with day to day living. Shelly Coyne with Life Options was referred to me by John Robertson, the sales director at Atria Senior Living. He had worked with Shelly in the past and gave her high recommendations. He told me that she would be able to help me find the right living situation for my mother.
When I gave Shelly a call, she was so kind and helpful. She asked about my mother’s needs and the location that we desired. Shelly immediately found three very nice residential care homes to show me. We decided to place my mother at one of the three, and my mother is doing very well. Shelly gave me a lot of support and helpful advice during this difficult transition, and I am very thankful for her professional help.
