How Senior Star Communities Support Families and Loved Ones


When aging adults move into a senior living community, they gain access to additional care and support. Independent, assisted living, and memory care communities tailor their assistance to the unique needs of each individual.

However, in many cases, families need support, too. Family caregivers take on a lot of responsibilities. A person caring for their parent could be dealing with their own health issues. Adult children are likely juggling busy scheduling and their own family responsibilities – or they may not live nearby. 

This is where senior living communities can step in to help. At Senior Star, we are here to support caregivers too. We can help create care plans for aging parents and also be a source of information and education.

Family Support Before and During Your Senior Living Search

When adult children and caregivers see a need to begin discussing senior living options with their loved ones, it can be overwhelming.

How do you start a conversation about senior living? How do you decide which community is a good fit? What is the best way to pay for senior living?

At Senior Star, we understand those concerns. We’ve developed a library of resources for families and caregivers on our website. All of our guides, toolkits, and blogs are free and easy to download.

Our blogs cover a wide variety of topics relevant to both residents and their caregivers. You’ll find everything from gift ideas to healthy living tips to educational resources. Sign up to receive our monthly newsletter with links to the latest blogs or search for the topic that interests you from our website.

Schedule a Tour

One of the best ways to get personalized help is to schedule a tour. During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to get answers to your questions from a Senior Living Specialist. They’ll take the time to get to know you and your loved one. Our specialists have experience helping families make the decision to choose a community.

Schedule a virtual or in-person tour to meet our team and learn more about the engaging and purpose-filled life your loved one can enjoy at a Senior Star community.


Help During the Transition

There is a lot to do when it’s time to move you or your loved one into a new senior living community. At Senior Star, we want to make it as easy as possible for the residents and their families to make a smooth transition. 

  • Use a transition planning checklist to help you keep track of what needs to be done and when.
  • If you need help with packing or moving, your community can help you find companies they know and trust.
  • Your Senior Living Specialist can also help you determine which furniture and personal items will fit in the new space. 

Family Support After the Move

We know how important it is for adult children and family members to feel engaged in their loved one’s life and care. Senior Star staff welcomes and encourages family involvement. They are also a great resource for additional support when it’s needed.

  • It’s easy to stay up to date with what’s happening in your loved one’s community when you download the Sagely: Family 2.0 App. The family app provides real-time activity updates, photos & community messages on your smartphone or tablet. Residents have their own app where they review the community calendar, RSVP to activities and receive community messages. 
  • Senior Star communities offer a plethora of things to do. Each community has its own monthly calendar filled with activities, events, and Signature Programs. In many cases, friends and family are welcome to participate alongside residents. Staff can also help reserve a room for a family gathering or make recommendations on the best ways to spend time with a person living with dementia. There are lots of opportunities to stay connected.
  • We always want to keep the lines of communication open. Have a question? Don’t hesitate to give your location a call – we are here to help.


We know how important family relationships are for the well-being of our residents. The entire Senior Star team is here to support both you and your loved one.
