Here's how we work…

Finding the right Home Care, Assisted Living or Memory Care for your loved on is not an easy process.  We want to make sure that you know exactly what to expect.  At Senior Living Service, we collaborate and advocate with you each step of the way.  

The following are steps in which you can expect:

  • First initial meeting via phone/in person to discuss current situation, preference, timeline and budget. We collect all pertinent information about your loved one’s medical and social history to help us find the best Assisted Living/care options.
  • We begin our research phase and evaluate the State’s records, community reputation and industry knowledge in order to narrow down to the 3 best communities to show you.
  • We preview the communities in order to make sure it meets our high standards and yours.
  • We set up a time to accompany you to all showings and move into an Advocate role in representing you.
  • We discuss with you the best options and present to you the pros and cons of each community.
  • We help you gather all clinical, State, and Community paperwork required for a move-in.
  • We obtain a copy of the contract/agreement to pre-review before you sign, to make sure there are no surprises.
  • We negotiate with the community on the best rooms, rates, and terms on your behalf.
  • We accompany you to the signing.
  • We bring any additional resources to you such as Elder Law/Trust Attorney, Financial Planner, Real Estate Agent/Broker, and Moving companies that specialize in senior moves.
  • After the move-in, we follow up with the community to see how your loved one is adjusting to their new home and report back to you and your family. 

Meet Natalie

My name is Natalie Barrantes and I'm the founder of Senior Living Services.  We are a referral placement agency for Senior Housing options. Our service is free to clients and we work with you to find the best possible housing options for your loved ones needs.


We do this by first understanding what’s important to you. From understanding clinical, social and even family dynamic aspects of how you see care implemented. We connect all family members communication together to come to an informed decision.

Prior to narrowing down communities that fit your needs, we first personally preview each property to make sure that it meets our high standards and yours. We give you all available information that are available, including the State’s records.

We then accompany you to the actual showings and step into an advocacy role as you make the decision on the community that fits all of your requirements. We even accompany you to the signing of contract and help bring any available professional resources to you. We also guide you to completing the clinical required documentation that are needed prior to your move-in date.

Our job is to make this difficult time as easy and stress free as possible.  I would be honored to be selected as your guide during your senior living placement process.

Kind Words From Clients...

Leonor Renter

As an only child, it was so helpful to meet Natalie when my mother had to move suddenly after a stroke. Mom needed a new place fast and I didn’t have time to carefully research every possibility. It was also a difficult move emotionally for Mom and for me. Natalie jumped in to become our partner, not only caring about finding the best option for us, but being an expert in the pros and cons of different places. She was very available to respond to my questions and worries and reassuring throughout the process. I have since referred a number of my friends to Natalie and their experience has mirrored my own. She is truly a gem and worthy of your trust.

Carol Pederson

Natalie took the time to take me to see places for my mother. She certainly did her research ahead of time.  I was impressed by her professionalism.  She knew the people we were meeting, helped with asking the right questions and then took the time to ask me pro and con from each place we met.  Her insight was priceless and I would highly recommend her!  The fact that her services are complimentary is the icing on the cake.  Thank you, Natalie for all that you did for me and for my Mom.
