About Rick and Laurel


Rick Young

Rick Young is passionate about serving seniors and their families as they confront a complex challenge in finding the “right” senior living community. He experiences personal  satisfaction from  seeing  families  enjoy  peace of  mind when they have made the “right” decision.  This strong feeling to reach out to seniors and their families in a highly emotional situation resulted from a difficult situation  Rick  and  his  6  siblings  experienced   in  locating   a  senior   living community for their  father. Family members were bewildered by the daunting task because of fragmented knowledge about  senior  living  alternatives.  As a result of this situation,Rick recognized that he wanted to give back and offer a better  way for families and seniors to locate the “right” senior living residence.

Throughout  his business career, Rick developed  excellent  listening, analytical and problem  resolution skills. He is patient,kind and understanding,yet action oriented  when  a plan  has been agreed  upon. He prides  himself  in  working tirelessly on behalf of seniors and their families to identify and tour senior living communities that are safe and satisfy the needs of all parties involved.

He recognizes that  each client represents a unique  challenge.  He accepts each challenge with  a compassionate belief  that  respect for the personal needs and wants of every family and their loved one predominates all other issues.

Rick and his wife Laurel are currently studying to be Certified  Senior Advisors.

 

Laurel Young

Laurel Young is motivated by the opportunity to help seniors and their  families as they make a major  decision in their  lives. In pursuit  of this goal,she earned her undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology and a Master’s  degree in Health  Care Administration. She prepared  for  the  opportunity to work  with seniors  by  initially working in  Hospital  Trauma  Centers and  later  as a Case Manager  at  a sheltered  workshop  where  she counseled  the  developmentally disabled.

Laurel’s work  experiences, dealing  with families in crisis situations  and helping the disabled restructure their lives matured her listening,conflict resolution and counseling skills. She has intense empathy for client needs and wants.

In an effort to achieve the highest level of Senior Advisor accreditation, Laurel is studying to be a Certified Senior Advisor.

Laurel was raised in the  Detroit area.   She derives personal gratification and much  inner  peace in giving  back and helping  those  in  a crisis situation.   Her Trauma Center experience  developed  her abilities  to listen and diffuse conflicts with families  in a volatile  emotional environment. Her experience  with the developmentally disabled  intensified her  compassion and desire to reach out and help those who had difficulty helping themselves.

Laurel  and  her  husband  Rick  work  as  a  team  to offer  quality, responsive assistance to seniors and their families.
