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 Bryan and Stacy Marlin

senior care consultants Bryan and Stacy Marlin

Bryan and Stacy are excited about their endeavor into Senior Care Authority.  They come from diverse, professional backgrounds which brings a valuable experience to helping families faced with making tough decisions for their loved ones.  We had been looking for an opportunity to use our knowledge, skills, and experience to help seniors in need. Senior Care Authority has given us the opportunity to meet this desire in helping families during challenging times.

Bryan served our country for 24 years in the Navy where he earned the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer and a Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.  During this time, he served as a leader in many areas helping service members make life changing choices.  His skills in decision making come as a great asset to families struggling with how to make the right choice.  

Stacy attended Texas A&M University and earned a Bachelor of Science in Health. After working in healthcare for many years, she returned to school and earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Through her own family experiences, she has been faced with complex decisions for her father, who was battling cancer, and her grandmother, who could no longer remain safely at home. Stacy understands the struggles and challenges families face in making these decisions. Our goal is to help families make this process more bearable by being by their side and sharing our expertise to find the best fit for each person.

We spend a great deal of time touring and reviewing the living communities in central Texas — including assisted living, independent living, dementia, memory care, and residential care homes — to help our clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones.  Our time spent knowing the communities saves families from countless hours of research and investigation while allowing them to focus on caring for their loved one.  We meet with each family to assess their needs, accompany them on tours, assist with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with the family once the placement has been made.

Our work is no cost to the family, receiving a commission similar to a realtor or apartment locator from the location chosen by the family.  We are a veteran owned business ready to help meet the needs of your family.  You can see assisted living facility reviews in Texas on our corporate page.
