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 in San Mateo County - the terminology is often unfamiliar. Senior Care Authority® will streamline the process to make it easier for you to make an informed decision.

Our 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.

A Senior Care Advisor 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 in your area 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.

About Annamarie Buonocore

Annamarie Buonocore from San Mateo, California enjoys serving her local community and working with seniors and families. She is an entrepreneur at heart and has been in the publishing business for several years. She ran a nonprofit literary journal for a couple years and is the Associate Publisher of In Flight USA Magazine, a family-owned business for 33 years. 

Her family publishing company has included many publications over the years, including a senior magazine, a wine magazine, and an agricultural and livestock journal, which will make another debut in August 2017. In addition to her businesses, she is a member of Toastmasters International and is a writer who focuses on the Greek-Americans of the Midwest. She enjoys painting, singing, and dogs in her spare time. 

Two years ago, Buonocore lost her grandfather to Alzheimer's Disease. While she learned many things about the disease as he went through the process, she also learned a great deal about family. Buonocore has always cherished the concept of family and looks forward to aiding others as they go through a challenging process.

Buonocore believes her well-rounded sales and marketing experience as well as her academic training at San Jose State University will help her in the growth of her new franchise. At some point, she would like to incorporate a publication for families and seniors into her new business.
