About Jeffrey Horwitz
As an undergraduate at San Diego State, Jeffrey earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies with a minor in Broadcast and Television. Such an education gives him a unique perspective when connecting with others and empathizing with their point of view. Jeffrey has professionally consulted and educated others in finance and communication for over 2 decades, and also volunteer when possible in his local community.
After personally going through the process of an elder family member being diagnosed with a form of Dementia, Jeffrey saw and experienced first hand the daunting task of getting help for his loved one. "It was extremely overwhelming", said Jeffrey. "I wish my family had someone take us by the hand and show us all the best assistance options available based on our needs. To get the answers we sought, we needed someone to understand our family situation. Somebody who saw it from our point of view."
Recognizing that many families are thrown into the same situation and don’t know where to start, Jeffrey decided to change his career path to serve the needs of families and seniors with regard to assisted living and senior care needs. You can be sure Jeffrey will take the time to evaluate and understand each situation and make the best recommendation with regards to the needs of the elder and the people who love them. Jeffrey now spends much of his time touring and reviewing local living communities – including assisted living, independent living, dementia and memory care, and residential care homes. Jeffrey meets one-on-one with families to assess their needs. He accompanies them on tours of pre-approved facilities, assists them with their negotiations and paperwork, and follows up with the client once the placement has been made.
Jeffrey is always happy to help with all the necessary services related to assisted living facilities or residential care home for your loved ones in South Orange county. You can see assisted living facility reviews in Orange County on his corporate page.

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.
