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, residential care homes, and other care options available in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area - 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.

About John Alagood

john-alagood

John Alagood grew up on stories about new model T’s and prohibition, WWI to Vietnam, and canning food for lean winters. Experiences around three generations of care needs, including decades of independent living, memory care for protracted Alzheimer’s, a 100th birthday, and home care after sudden strokes, have been huge sources of joy and pain.

Before professionally assisting seniors, John worked as a management consultant and crisis manager. Over the course of 20 years, he and his teams served more than 100 businesses and charities, ranging from Fortune 500 to startups, in over 20 industries and on four continents.

A Certified Senior Advisor, John is now focused entirely on serving seniors in his local community of Dallas-Fort Worth. His crisis experience, both in his professional and personal life, allows him to help families make courageous and informed decisions under difficult circumstances.

“It shouldn’t be this hard for families to find the best senior living options, especially when the stakes are so high,” says the long-time Dallas resident. “However, there are over 500 options in DFW for assisted living alone, with wildly varying degrees of quality and service. My goal is to make the advocacy and guidance I would want for my own family accessible to seniors throughout DFW.”

John spends a great deal of time touring and reviewing the local living communities — including assisted living, independent living, dementia and memory care, and residential care homes — to help his clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones.

When asked about his approach, John says, “I get to do a lot of listening, understanding each family’s unique circumstances. This allows me to make the process less overwhelming by providing them with a short-list of the best care options to meet their needs. I then tour communities with the family, assist with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with the senior after they’ve moved in.”

When not serving seniors, John enjoys time with his wife and high-school daughter, playing his Martin backpacker guitar, and close fellowship at church. He also is a long-time and passionate Child Advocate with Compassion International.

John is always happy to help with all the necessary services related to assisted living facilities or residential care home for your loved ones in Dallas Forth Worth area. You can see assisted living facility reviews in Texas on his corporate page.
