Maureen Simmons

Maureen has always been passionate about helping others through challenging times. As an active member of her community, Maureen has served in a variety of volunteer positions including helping the homeless, raising funds for cancer research and volunteering at senior centers.

Upon graduating with a degree in Political Science from UC Santa Barbara, Maureen worked for a large software company demonstrating her strong ability to identify the most appropriate solutions for her clients.

Maureen became a Certified Senior Advisor after personally having to seek out assisted living for her mother and uncle. "I felt so overwhelmed and realized how essential it is for families to have the support and advocacy required to navigate this challenging journey." She personally meets with families to assess their situation. "I want to make a difference for my clients during this difficult process and it all starts with understanding the unique care needs and financial considerations of each family."

Maureen will act as a family's personal guide. "I am in a unique position to find the senior living option best suited for a loved one because I have devoted hours touring homes and communities, meeting caregivers and reviewing state reports for citations." In addition, she accompanies her families on tours, assists with negotiations and paperwork and provides continued follow up to ensure families are happy with their decision.

I know first hand the overwhelming emotions and uncertainty involved with this process. My primary goal is to find a safe and supportive environment that caters to the unique needs of my client whether it is memory care, assisted living or independent living. In the end, it's all about peace of mind.

Senior Care Authority® was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.

​In 2014, the model was franchised and Senior Care Authority® is now a national company with offices throughout the US and Canada. As part of their expansion, they partnered with an eldercare consulting practice who brought another set of senior care services and skills to the company, a great differentiator for Senior Care Authority.

"Maureen was a tremendous help when we needed to place my 91 year old mom. During this challenging and emotional time, Maureen was able to compassionately and patiently guide us through the process. She was extremely knowledgeable of the various options, set up all the appointments and even attended all the visits with us asking pertinent questions we may not have thought to ask. She was an invaluable resource through this journey!"
