Learn to "let go". Although it is a commonly used phrase, how many of us actually know what it means and even if we do know, how do we do it?

Find Senior Living and Care Options
Making the right care decision for your loved one can be a daunting task filled with stress, tension and pressure. There are so many assisted living, memory care, nursing, and other care options available in Houston - the terminology is often unfamiliar. Senior Care Authority® will streamline the process to make it easier for you to make an informed decision.
Our national team of Senior Care Advisors spends countless hours inspecting locations, from mid-to-larger size communities as well as smaller, residential care homes, meeting the staff and reviewing state reports to advise you of any citations that may have been issued against a particular location.
A Senior Care Advisor will meet personally with you to discuss your options, accompany you on visits to locations and ensure that all your questions are answered. The hallmark of our service commitment is that we are by your side every step of the way. We would be happy to put you in contact with an advisor in your area who will provide you with expert advice on any of the assisted living locations listed in our directory of locations.

Get individualized assistance with your loved one
Sometimes our families just need more help with challenging transitions and decision-making. This may include facilitating essential conversations between family members, home care agency or caregiver selection, connections to valuable resources or regular visitations with a loved one providing "peace of mind" to family members when they are unable to visit themselves.
It can be comforting to have someone partner with you who is outside the emotional landscape of the family, doing research, talking to providers, organizing paperwork, or finding those "needle in a haystack" resources. A go-to person you can turn to when things get overwhelming. Whatever the need, we can customize our services for your family or provide you with vetted referral sources.

We Do The Homework For You
Our process is aimed at relieving you of the stress and confusion in finding the right care needs.
In our initial conversation, we will seek to get a comprehensive understanding of your elder care needs, answer your questions and set up a time to meet with you.
We meet with you personally and present the senior living alternatives that provide the safety, care, and comfort you expect and that meet your location and affordability requirements.
After identifying the providers that will meet your needs, we schedule tours and accompany you to each community. Once your selection is made, we can assist with the paperwork and arrangements for moving.
We will follow up with you to ensure that the location chosen is meeting the care, comfort, and safety needs of your loved one. We are always available to answer any questions you might have free of charge.
Cynthia researches assisted living facilities, residential care homes, dementia and memory care locations to provide families with the best possible options and least amount of stress, when trying to find a place for their loved one.
Before helping seniors, Cynthia was in the insurance industry for more than 25 years providing fraud, financial and underwriting analysis. My insurance career began as a forensic analyst with Travis County District Attorney’s Office Special Prosecution Division Insurance Fraud Unit. She analyzed and reconstructed financial records to identify concealed transactions relating to allegations of criminal activity. The last 10 years of her insurance career were spent as a Medical Professional Liability Underwriter and Insurance Agent.
Cynthia graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. She then obtained the highest designation for insurance professionals, the Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), designation in 2002.
Most of Cynthia’s time is spent touring and reviewing assisted living facilities, residential care homes, independent living locations, dementia and memory care facilities.
Cynthia’s work is at no cost to the family. She receives commission similar to a realtor or apartment locator from the facility chosen by the family.
