The purpose is to find funding through federal, state & local grants. I still work fulltime and trying to launch a business on the side. Having a grant writer can help put a proposal together while I'm focusing on my other day-to-day tasks.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
This project will enable families to get connected with senior living options and other senior resources at more personable approach. Families that use the service will be able to get connected with local senior living advisors throughout the US. In other words, I want to be digital SEO umbrella for all the local senior living advisors. This will be online based and can be operated through an app as well. Instead of receiving resources information from a rep in another state or a from professional with no background in senior living, the family will be connected to a local expert who can meet the family in person to discuss their options. The local senior living advisor will connect the family with communities that they've actually toured, established a relationship with, and received good feedback from families they previously referred there. Most of the small business professionals in this industry are missing a lot of opportunities because they do not have a lot of knowledge about the SEO world and I want to bridge that gap. This method will not only provide a better experience for the family, but It will help local senior living advisors get connected with more families in need. Unlike a franchise, which can cost anywhere from $50,000-$100,000 to start, the local senior living advisor will pay a percentage once they've found the perfect home for their loved one and received compensation from the community. In addition, there will be free marketing tips accessible to senior living advisors who contract with me. Although they will be getting an increase in revenue and leads contracting with my service, I still want to provide education on how to find free leads.

I help families in need of senior living options. The demand for senior living is increasing as the baby boomers are reaching retirement age. As a former Administrator, majority of the families that I've delt with would come into my community because a professional told them that it is not safe for mom and dad to go back home. They get this list of different communities to look at but the family gets no guidance as to what to type of community to look for, what questions to ask, and what to look at when touring these communities. So as demand of senior living is increasing, the demand for senior living advisors are increasing. The issue is that the smaller local advisors are not strong in the SEO digital world and these online based referral agencies are. The online based agencies basically refers families to communities that they've never toured and the reps themselves may be in another state. My goal is to connect them with a local advisor in that state who knows the area, knows the community reputation, and can meet the family in person.
Senior Living advisors gets paid by the community they referred the family to. Once the resident moves in, there is a referral fee that senior living community has to pay the advisor ranges anywhere from $2500-$8000. The varies depending on the state, type of community, the contract agreement that the advisor has with the community. If this was a family, I referred to them and they succeeded in finding a solution, I get 40% of what the community pays them.
