About Rick and Laurel
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.
