About Rich Lanning

My passion for helping others in my community is a natural fit with the mission of Assisted Living Locators. I have personal experience with finding care for an aging loved one and know first-hand the stress and challenges families face in the care decision making process. Previously, I had a 34-year successful career in the financial services industry. I leverage my analytical skills and passion for helping others to determine the best quality of life options for seniors. I provide a vital layer of support to guide families to the appropriate senior care decisions.

Finding the right senior living options

I understand how difficult it is to place a loved one in senior care - so many questions, too many decisions and, often, not a great deal of time to reach a choice that works for all. As your Senior Care Advisor, I will work closely with you to ensure that all options are understood and the best solution is reached for the Senior and the family.

Too often families wait until a Senior is in time critical need of Senior Care, please do not add that unneeded stress to the process. I am happy to chat about Senior Care options whether care is needed in three days or in three years.

Like many families nowadays, our family is spread out around the country from where we grew up in CT. When we decided our mother needed a higher level of care, we called on Rich Lanning with Assisted Living Locators in NW NJ. Rich is responsive, knowledgeable about all senior housing options, and empathetic. Once we explained our situation, he quickly identified 4 excellent facility options. He coordinated and accompanied us on the visits with staff, and guided us in our selection of the best option for our Mom. We have just completed her move, and we know if we ever need additional assistance, Rich is just a phone call away. Our family greatly appreciates Rich and Assisted Living Locators.

There's an old saw I'd hear from friends going through the experience of downsizing a parent or parents from a house to assisted living, that "no one ever told me how hard this is whole process is." When it came my time recently to say that, I find Rich Lanning of Assisted Living Locators of Greater Essex County and Northwest New Jersey. What a Godsend - guided us expertly through the process, options, caveats, potholes, benefits, pain, and joy of it all. Thanks, Rich. Highly recommend.

FAQs About Senior Living Advisors in Sussex, Essex, Passaic, North Warren County & North Morris County and parts of Union & Hudson Counties

As we age, our physical and cognitive abilities may change, and the need for additional support and care may arise. Assisted living communities have emerged as a popular option, offering seniors a nurturing environment where they can thrive. With their emphasis on independence, personalized care, and a wide range of amenities, assisted living facilities have revolutionized the aging experience. The many benefits of assisted living for seniors include:

  • Enhanced safety and security
  • Professional and personalized care
  • Social engagement and companionship
  • Wellness and recreational opportunities
  • Relieving the burden of household chores
  • Access supportive services as needed

Maintaining an active social life and being part of a community become increasingly important for our overall well-being as we age. Socializing and community engagement offer numerous benefits for seniors, ranging from emotional support to cognitive stimulation and physical health.

Loneliness and depression are common challenges faced by seniors. However, regular social interaction can provide emotional support, alleviate feelings of loneliness, and boost overall well-being. Engaging with friends, family, and fellow community members fosters connections and creates a support system that can bring joy and a sense of belonging.

Keeping the mind sharp and active is crucial for seniors, and socializing plays a vital role in achieving this. Engaging in conversations, participating in activities, and attending social events provide mental stimulation, promote memory recall, and improve cognitive function. By challenging the brain through social interactions, seniors can reduce the risk of cognitive decline and conditions like dementia.

Socializing and community involvement introduce seniors to new friendships and relationships. By expanding their social network, they open themselves up to diverse perspectives, cultural experiences, and shared activities. Building new connections can lead to companionship, collaboration, and the discovery of new interests.

At Assisted Living Locators, our uniqueness is defined by a combination of personal qualities, skills, and experiences.

  • Network and Relationships: We build strong relationships with our local senior care facilities, home care agencies, and other professionals. Having this extensive network helps us provide clients with more options and access to the best care.
  • Problem-Solving Abilities: Senior care often involves complex situations and challenges. Our ability to think critically, analyze situations, and come up with creative solutions set us apart when helping clients navigate difficult decisions.
  • Attention to Details: Being detail-oriented helps us ensure that clients understand the terms and conditions of their choices and avoid potential pitfalls.
