About Your Placement Options Team
A lifetime appreciation of Seniors
Education; Experience; Compassion; Ethics.
Placement Options was started in 1996 to help Seniors and their families find the right residential care options for each individual.
Joyce Peterson, R.N. and Brenda Teverbaugh, OTR had over 50 years of combined health care experience, strong ethics and a desire to help seniors and their families.
To make quality recommendations they felt it was important to:
|||Understand the medical issues of the patient|
|||Understand the family issues for the patient|
|||Understand the social and aging issues|
|||Understand the local facilities and their services|
Now, over a decade later, Brenda and the team continue to work with these concepts:
|||Strong knowledge of local facilities and services|
