Find Senior Living and Care Options
Making the right care decision for your loved one can be a daunting task filled with stress, tension and pressure. There are so many assisted living, memory care, nursing, and other care options available on Long Island - the terminology is often unfamiliar. Senior Care Authority® will streamline the process to make it easier for you to make an informed decision.

Our local and national team of Senior Care Advisors spends countless hours inspecting locations, from mid-to-larger size communities as well as smaller, residential care homes, meeting the staff and reviewing state reports to advise you of any citations that may have been issued against a particular location.

Our Long Island team of SCA advisors will meet personally with you to discuss your options, accompany you on visits to locations and ensure that all your questions are answered. The hallmark of our service commitment is that we are by your side every step of the way. We would be happy to put you in contact with an advisor on Long Island who will provide you with expert advice on any of the assisted living locations listed in our directory of locations.

Get individualized assistance with your loved one
Sometimes our families just need more help with challenging transitions and decision-making. This may include facilitating essential conversations between family members, home care agency or caregiver selection, connections to valuable resources or regular visitations with a loved one providing "peace of mind" to family members when they are unable to visit themselves.

It can be comforting to have someone partner with you who is outside the emotional landscape of the family, doing research, talking to providers, organizing paperwork, or finding those "needle in a haystack" resources. A go-to person you can turn to when things get overwhelming. Whatever the need, we can customize our services for your family or provide you with vetted referral sources.

Top 10 signs your loved ones may need senior care

We Do The Homework For You

Our process is aimed at relieving you of the stress and confusion in finding the right care needs.

Adam Flattau

I know how stressful it can be to search for the right care and the best place to live for a loved one in crisis. The abundance of options, establishing budgets, identifying the specific needs and all of the paperwork required can make the process overwhelming.

When my uncle Walter was released from the hospital into a rehab facility, as his primary caregiver I was given a list of options -- home care companies and assisted living communities and sent on my way. The more places we visited and the more companies we interviewed the more confused we felt.

It was difficult to keep the details of each conversation, company, and community straight. We needed someone to take us by the hand and explain which option would best fit Walter's needs.

I later went through similar processes with my mom, Carol and my father-in-law, Mark. Each time learning more about the process and each time wishing I had assistance in navigating these daunting tasks.

I studied Business and Communications in college and spent the last 30 years in varying roles in finance, sales, and management. It wasn’t until I’d gone through this personal experience that I realized my true passion.

I decided to become a Senior Care Authority Advisor to help other families avoid what my family and I went through.

Combining my background in developing relationships, client retention, client service and sales management, with my personal experiences of navigating the health care system I am well suited to helping seniors and families find the right fit for their personalities and needs. I want them to find a place that will feel like home. I want to be the light they see when they are in that dark uncertain place I once was.

I was born, raised and currently reside in the same Long Island town in which I grew up. I spend much of my time visiting and reviewing Long Island's senior communities — including assisted living, independent living, memory care, and skilled nursing facilities — to help my clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones. I meet one-on-one with families to assess their needs. I accompany them on visits to top-rated facilities, assist with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with families after a placement is made. If the timing isn't right for moving into a senior living community, I will help the caregiver, family, and senior understand all of the options available to them.

After 10 plus years of coaching youth soccer, baseball and football I decided to focus my efforts on coaching families in finding the best places for their loved ones to live and receive the proper care. When not striving to make a difference in seniors’ lives, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. As a fan of fresh air and the outdoors, my wife Ilyse, sons Rob and Brian and I spend time skiing in Vermont, golfing on Long Island, going to Robert Moses and Fire Island or barbecuing in preparation for watching Sunday football.
