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, nursing, and other care options available in Denver Metro 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 Brandy Randolph
Brandy Randolph knows how stressful it can be to search for the right care facility for a senior in crisis. When her father-in-law Bob was released from the hospital into a rehab facility, the family was given a list of facilities and sent on their way. The more places they visited the more confused they got.
“It was hard to keep the details of each facility straight,” Brandy says. “We needed someone to take us by the hand and show us which places would fit Bob’s needs. There was no one who knew all about Bob and all about the facilities.”
Brandy studied Psychology and Gerontology in college and always knew she wanted to work in some aspect of the Gerontology field. But it wasn’t until she’d gone through this personal experience that she knew what she wanted to do.
She decided to become a Senior Care Authority Advisor to help other families avoid what she and her family went through.
With a background in customer retention, customer service and sales, Brandy is well suited to helping seniors and families find the right fit for their personality and needs.
“I want them to find a place that will feel like home,” she says. “I want to be the light they see when they are in that dark uncertain place we once were.”
The Denver native spends much of her time visiting and reviewing the area’s senior facilities — including assisted living, independent living, memory care, and residential care homes — to help her clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones. She meets one-on-one with families to assess their needs, schedules and accompanies them on visits to top-rated facilities, assists with negotiations and paperwork, and follows up with families after a placement is made.
When not striving to make a difference in seniors’ lives, Brandy enjoys spending time with her family — traveling, hiking, camping, boating, and seeking adventure of all kinds with her husband and two “beautiful children.”
Brandy is always happy to help with all the necessary services related to assisted living facilities or residential care home for your loved ones in North Denver metro area. You can see assisted living facility reviews in Colorado on her corporate page.
