Experience

Over the last 15 years we have counseled hundreds of senior families, helping them find homes meeting all their individual needs. Our familiarity with local communities, their services and amenities, as well as costs allow you the added security in knowing you are making the best possible decisions.

Heidi Sheldon, Owner & Founder
Having spent a decade working in the Retirement and Assisted Living industry, I grew increasingly frustrated by the lack of information or clearly defined parameters available for family members. Confused by the numerous housing and care options many were taking significant time off of work to attempt coordinating these daunting moves, often making well meaning but hasty and uneducated placement decisions. A difficult task at best, I recognized that there had to be a smoother, better way for this process to unfold. The creation of Options for Seniors was born from my experience and knowledge of the Senior Housing Industry. I have spent more than 15 years helping Seniors and their families with making one of the most important life decisions, entrusting the future housing and care to those who share in our loved ones dreams, values and desires. I take my role in the process very seriously and consider it an honor to work with each family.
