Michael Gill, Texas Senior Living Locators, joined us from Austin, TX to discuss the various levels of senior living and how to make a choice for your loved one.  You can find out more about Texas Senior Living Locators and contact Mike at:  TexasSenorLivingLocators.com.  You can also call him (512-630-7133) or e-mail him (mgill@texassll.com).  Mike can guide you through the chaos of finding the right living situation for you or your loved one, even helping you to sort things out and find organization in the midst of a chaotic emergency.  The advantages of his help is that he will not share your information, so that you won’t receive endless marketing calls from facilities and senior living companies, he can help you figure out the right level of care, he can refer you to a myriad of services you might need, and he is aware of the many various communities in Austin.  If you’re not in the Austin area, he recommends that you find a locator service like his wherever you live.  You can ask home health agencies or assisted living communities in your area for a referral for such a locator service.
