Finding a Caregiver, a Memory Care Home, or Assisted Living in San Luis Obispo County is not easy.

Are you stressed out and overwhelmed? I talk to people like you every day. Finding the proper care solution for your aging loved one is a big decision and not always a popular one with your loved one that needs care. Obstacles can get in your way. Many people try to do this on their own. They end up making mistakes that lose money or decrease safety.

It can be hard to find a caregiver right now, so your timing might be perfect if you consider Assisted Living. When your parent said they never wanted to live in a nursing home, they were likely thinking of a Skilled Nursing Facility environment. Assisted Living is nothing like a Skilled Nursing Facility. Is apartment living (like a fancy hotel) with a nice restaurant, hair salon, and even happy hour! Each community has a unique combination of services, care, and activities.

Let me help take the stress away. Why not work with an expert with experience in selecting the proper care community or the right in-home caregiver?

I can help you make an informed decision.

When choosing an independent caregiver you are ensured that you will have someone screened and experienced. Since you know your loved one better than anyone, it is important you make sure the caregiver and the client are a personality match. Even when selecting an assisted living community or care home personality match of the other residents and the staff is critical to a successful long-term relationship.

San Luis Obispo Caregivers was created in memory of my Grandfather, Tracy Gordon Wood II. My mission is to honor him by providing trustworthy, compassionate, and competitively priced caregiving services to seniors in my community. After 25 years in the financial industry and the decision to leave behind a successful 6-year position as the Chief Operating Officer of SESLOC Federal Credit Union, I created San Luis Obispo Home Care. This decision served my desire to make a difference and support the growing needs of seniors in my community. As my business grew and I leaned heavily on my financial background, I realized there was a much more cost-effective way to provide seniors with the care they deserve. This realization led to the creation of San Luis Obispo Caregivers, a referral agency and SLO Senior Placement, a free resource for families looking for independent or assisted living options for seniors. Ultimately, I listen, assess your situation and recommend various options that are available for your family.
