Elder woman and her caretaker

About Us

When it comes to selecting the right senior living for your elderly loved one, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the process. With nearly 50 communities in the Des Moines area, and a wide range of different types of housing options, it’s not always easy to know where to begin.

 

At Artisan Senior Placements, we are committed to making the choice of senior housing simple. We offer free senior housing services for individuals and their families. We take the time to understand your unique goals and needs, offering compassionate, personalized support and guidance every step of the way.

 

We work with seniors and family members to help determine what type of care is needed and what types of facilities are available. Not all seniors have family nearby to help them with this task which is another reason why ASP can shoulder the burden in determining which community is the best fit.

 

An ASP Placement Navigator will contact you and set up a meeting to assess your individual situation. This consultation will assess your personal, medical, dietary, financial, geographical and religious circumstances. After all information is gathered, the coordinator will assess those needs and offer 2-3 communities that will be a good fit.

Coordination- With a thorough understanding of both what you are looking for and what is available, the placement navigator will contact the facilities that meet your specified criteria and will arrange for you to take a tour. The navigator will accompany you on the tour, if you desire, to make sure all of your questions get answered. You can also visit facilities at your own leisure and consult with us about the visit.

 

Preparation-  Once you decide on the community for you, the navigator will guide you through the transition process. This includes gathering the necessary documentation for the community, assisting with completion, and working with the community on the move-in details.

 

Transition/Follow up- ASP will be sure the selected community is ready for your arrival and the transition to senior living is smooth. Even after the move, we remain in contact to address any issues and make sure the community is meeting your needs.


 

With ASP, we will be with you from the initial consultation to the final placement decision. This includes setting up and accompanying you on the tour of selected assisted living communities. ASP wants you to feel you have found the right place for your loved one.
