Opportunities in Assisted Living and Elder Care
Elder Care Advisor
Alexandria Assisted Living Locators
If you haven't planned for senior living care, you aren't alone. Few people do - either because they don't think they'll need it or because they want to save their assets for their children and believe that government subsidies will cover any care they need. This doesn't mean they can't afford suitable care; it just means the choices may be more limited. Fortunately, just like the variety in settings, styles, and amenities, senior living residences are available at a variety of price points.
Costs vary with the residence, apartment size, and types of services needed. The basic rate may cover all services or there may be additional charges for special services. Most assisted living residences charge on a month-to-month lease arrangement, but a few require long-term arrangements.
Assisted Living Locators is a FREE referral service. Their professional Eldercare Advisors provide personal assistance in locating the right options for your elderly loved one. An Eldercare Advisor can reduce your stress by providing a free consultation and help you find the right Home Care, Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care, Assisted Living, Nursing Homes and Retirement Communities.
To meet this growing need for care, new career opportunities have emerged for a variety of roles in the elder care community.
Learn more about the range of these roles, and the skills needed to work in this field.
Starla Bryant is the new owner of Assisted Living Locators Alexandria, VA. Drawing from personal experience; she opened her Assisted Living Locators franchise to provide care and guidance to families when they need it the most.
After Starla’s mother suffered a stroke and she faced the daunting process of finding the right resources and trained caregivers within a 48-hour period, she wanted to pay it forward by helping others navigate the system and identify the best options for their loved ones.
In addition to eldercare advising, Starla enjoys exercising, perfecting her bowling game and enjoying an old western or war movie. She loves to travel, volunteer with her church and discover new local restaurants.
Starla thrives on making a positive difference for caregivers and their friends and family. She finds it gratifying to help people one-on-one and really make an impact in their lives. As an Elder Care Advisor, Starla is excited to provide a no cost, referral service that offers the best elder care options, information and resources available to help families in the Northern Virginia area. Starla loves running her own business and assisting others.

LIVE YOUR SUPERPOWER ® :
How to Know It, Own It,
and Say It Courageously
One of the hardest questions to answer at a job interview (right up there with: “What are some of your weaknesses?”) can be: “Tell me about yourself.”
We can be afraid to talk ourselves up. It can be hard to know how to fly your flag proudly when you’re feeling discouraged.
How do you talk about your accomplishments in a clear, simple, confident way? What makes YOU the right person for the job?
I help people define their brands, discover what separates them from the competition (that’s your superpower!), then find the perfect words to describe it to attract the right clients.
To guide you to know who you are, what you’re really selling, and how to articulate it everywhere SO THAT the people who need your help can find you. You get to do your good work, they get the help they need, and you can make money.
Your job is to know who you are, what you do, say it out loud courageously, and then live your superpower.
