Jan has lived in the Chicagoland area for over 25 years and has worked in senior living and real estate much of this time. Having gone through the process of finding the right care for her parents and watching others as they struggled through this most difficult task, she realized there was a serious need for support for seniors transitioning. Her passion is to help families through this very stressful time. The search for home care or for an appropriate senior living community is time consuming, frustrating and confusing. Jan is very familiar with the options in housing and home services needed to streamline the search. She provides the best options for families to choose from for a healthier lifestyle for their loved ones. It is Senior Transitions Concierge that does the legwork, researching the options and providing the best for the adult influencer to evaluate. She helps guide clients through the maze of options, connecting them to reputable, reliable service providers who will help their loved ones age in grace.
