About Valerie Amador:

I’m your local, dedicated Senior Care & Senior Living Advisor in Pasadena. I founded Placement Helpers, a senior care company in the Los Angeles area, with the mission of helping seniors find the perfect housing based on their unique needs, level of care, geographic location, and budget. With over 20 years of experience in the senior care industry, I’ve dedicated myself to ensuring that seniors find the right home, from independent living to assisted living to memory care.

Since starting my senior living journey in 2007, I’ve had the privilege of helping thousands of seniors find their perfect home. I am passionate about helping seniors live their best lives, believing that everyone deserves to age with dignity and independence. My commitment is to provide seniors with the resources they need to make informed housing decisions.

Beyond my work at Placement Helpers, I frequently speak on senior care issues and have been featured in numerous publications, including a recent appearance as a guest speaker at several local community events. I collaborate closely with assisted living facilities, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, and home care and hospice agencies to ensure my clients have a safe discharge.

As a member of The National Placement and Referral Alliance (NPRA), I am dedicated to advancing professionalism, fairness, and the development of the senior placement and referral industry to better serve seniors and their families. Recognized for outstanding customer service and leadership, I am a committed advocate for seniors, helping them find the right housing to live their best lives.

I began my research for the right memory care facility and financial resources available. Finally, after a few days, we found a senior care facility that seemed like the perfect fit. It specialized in dementia care, had highly trained staff, and provided a secure and comforting environment. The facility's commitment to preserving the senior's quality of life aligned perfectly with the family's wishes. We also worked closely with the facility to ensure that the transition was as smooth as possible. To address the family's financial concerns, and since this senior was a war era Veteran, we explored the Veteran’s benefits Aid & Attendance. The senior was able to receive an extra $2200 a month from the Aid & Attendance Program. We were able to find a solution that made quality care affordable for the family. In the end, the family was relieved to have found a senior care facility that not only met but exceeded their expectations. They were comforted by the knowledge that their loved one would receive excellent care and be surrounded by compassionate professionals who understood his unique needs. This story is a testament to the power of dedication and collaboration between families and senior care advisors like me. It highlights the importance of finding the right balance between the right care and quality of life for seniors, even in the most challenging situations.


What Our Customers Say

I talked with Robert, and he was extremely helpful in helping to figure out the process for finding assisted living facilities. He offered a lot of great advice, and was very thorough in answering all my questions. Thank you!

Lifesaver with a kind soul is what James embodies! He is so incredibly patient and listens to what you ask and found a great place for my mom with advanced Alzheimer's.

The minute I contacted a rep at Placement Helpers, I knew I was in great hands. She immediately scheduled tours for my mom. I felt she selected facilities where she would be willing to have her parents live. Placement Helpers definitely has many great resources.
