Piedmont Triad Assisted Living NCIf you’re like thousands of people in the Piedmont Triad NC area, you’re looking for a senior living, assisted living or memory care (dementia and Alzheimer’s) facility for yourself or a loved one because staying at home – often alone – is no longer possible, and you:

  • Feel alone and don’t know who you can turn to for advice you can trust. Perhaps you’ve already reached to the internet companies and found all they offer are lists.
  • Are unsure of the differences between assisted living and nursing homes, and which is right for you or your loved one.
  • Already have too much on your plate, and the last thing you need is more.
  • Don’t know how you will afford it and need to know your financial options and benefit programs.
  • Need help right away because of illness or injury.
  • Know that choosing the wrong place may have dire consequences now and in the future.

Many of our clients are sleep-deprived, anxious, worried and overworked with making a life-changing decision for themselves or their loved ones. Some are even pushed to the breaking point. Does that sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone and we’d like to help.

We get it because we’ve been there. And that’s why your Ask-Carol Advisor will work hard to lighten your load by offering you the kindhearted experienced support you deserve.

Your Ask-Carol Advisor is local and therefore has inside information on facility reputations, specialties, availability, and more, which will help you make the right decision.

We listen before we talk, then we’ll suggest senior or assisted living communities that meet your needs and budget.

It’s not a good idea to go it alone. Why try, when you can get expert help? Alone you will waste precious hours and very possibly choose the wrong place. That’s the last thing you need. 99.9% of our placements stick.

We’ll do more than help you find a place. We’ll also guide you on how to best manage emotional situations with your loved ones.

Other referral services can’t match us. We aren’t in it just for the money – we genuinely love helping families overcome difficult issues with aging loved ones who should no longer live at home.

Our help is always free. That’s right, you can take advantage of our expertise and experience, and you won’t pay a dime. We are compensated by our facility partners, much like an insurance or real estate agent.

You aren’t alone, and I’d like to help.

Dear Ask-Carol:

I was beside myself trying to find an assisted living facility for my mom. I was in a rush because the people who were caring for her were going to leave and she would have been alone.

Going to the assisted living facility very probably saved her life!!!! Thanks so much for everything you do!!!!!!! You are providing a much-needed service for seniors and their families.
