Why choose local experts?

Most of us go through major life decisions only a few times in our life- selecting a college, choosing a career, and buying a home. Finding the best place for a loved one when the time is right, is also one of those major decisions. Although you can try to navigate these major decisions on your own, each of them becomes much easier when you have the right person to help you, especially when that person has a wealth of knowledge on that topic. We want to be the persons to help make this long term care decision easier and less stressful for our clients. There’s no reason to go through this on your own, when we are here and ready to help you.

Stephen has been great to work with. When searching for Assisted Living for my parents, he listened to our family's health and financial requirements and has been very helpful in ensuring we find a good fit. I know I need a plan for my parents, and it's difficult to know where to start. It's very comforting to know this service exists to help you through the process.

The monthly cost varies depending on location and whether one chooses shared or private accommodations. On average, it ranges from $4,600 to $10,000.

The monthly cost for memory care also varies based on the level of care required, with an average range of $5,700 to $10,000.

In Delaware, only one fully licensed facility currently accepts Medicaid residents. Some other properties may offer limited Medicaid accommodations.


Wait times for Memory Care can be quite lengthy, often spanning from 12 to 18 months due to limited availability. For Assisted Living, wait times can range from immediate placement to a few months, depending on factors like location, budget, and accommodation preferences. To secure Memory Care in a timely manner, it’s advisable to transition from Assisted Living within the same facility, which often receives priority for Memory Care placement.

Absolutely! We have partners who can assist with VA Benefits, Medicaid qualification, and strategies involving real estate and asset liquidation. In many cases, we can identify properties that offer Spend Down options, allowing you to begin with traditional financing and transition to Medicaid.

Unfortunately, we cannot help with Section 8 housing. For the most current information and resources related to Section 8 housing in Delaware, the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) is your best point of contact.
