Rick was very knowledgeable and offered valuable insight into the process of finding a memory care community for my dad. I had no idea what I was doing…what questions to ask, what to look for, etc. and he took the time to listen, ask questions and offer solutions that would work with our situation. And his customer service was top notch, checking in frequently to see how our decision was going and how I was doing. I highly recommend Rick if you need help finding an aging care community for your loved one.
I highly recommend Rick at Senior Solutions. Knowledge, helpful, a great resource.
Rick is a compassionate listener who takes the needs of a family and provides appropriate support for all. Further, he follows through over time in a caring, supportive manner, never putting undue pressure on a family as they make tough decisions.
Senior Solutions was suggested to me by a social worker at an area rehab facility. I reached out looking for help identifying high quality home health services in the town my parents live. Rick returned my phone call within minutes, listened to the needs of our family and then promptly emailed me a list of options. I was worried about having strangers come into my parent's home - thanks to Rick, we found a wonderful team of caregivers. Then, when it was time to move to independent living, Rick again provided a range of options. From the handful of options Rick recommended, we found the perfect home for my parents. I never could have navigated this process long distance if we didn't have Rick as a resource.
I began working with Rick over a year ago, with absolutely no idea where to begin with my parents housing situation. We didn't know what level of care they needed, and as we would eventually be moving them from out of state, we didn't even know exactly which suburb to focus on depending which family member they would be closest to! Rick listened carefully to their story to help find the best options for them. He provided information and set up tours in the far west, near west and northern suburbs. He accompanied me on tours and asked questions I never would have thought of. Rick followed up with the facilities when I had questions and let my parents and I set the pace, while always being available for questions. My parents needs transitioned quite a bit from month to month and just when we would narrow in on one community, another issue would arise with one or the other requiring a different focus. Rick helped me navigate through their ever changing, complex care needs and helped us to find a placement for my dad. I highly recommend Rick!
Rick was an absolute pleasure to work with. He engaged our family with humility, grace, and patience. Rick consistently listened to our needs and used his extensive industry experience to suggest solutions. Our process to move my dad was almost a year in the making and Rick was extremely patient with us.
Rick Graffagna did a great job getting me in touch with a number of senior living options for my brother-in-law. He took the time to walk me through all of the intricate details of medicare and/vs private pay strategies to get the best choice for me. Could not recommend Rick more highly.
Rick has been a lifesaver to my family twice. The first time he helped us find live in care for my dad after surgery, and this time he helped us navigate the move from home to memory care for my mom as well as home help for my dad. He is well versed in all of the options available, took an incredible amount of time to help us compare and contrast facilities, provided much needed guidance on questions to ask and things to look for given our goals, and was patient, not pushy. I would recommend him to anyone needing help finding the right solution for your loved one's needs.
Thank you Rick for your expert guidance in our search to find a new home for Mom. You listened and counseled and provided the expertise we needed in this very personal, difficult task. I really could not have done this without your help. I would (and will) highly recommend you and your services to anyone and everyone. My sincerest thanks,
Rick is a great listener and wonderful person. He put in the time up front to listen to me about my parents needs, get me the appropriate resources and always followed through. Highly recommend Rick!
Looking into assisted living for my parents was so overwhelming! From price to mental care to location, I had no idea what I was doing. Then I heard of Senior Solutions and calling them was the best decision I ever made. Rick Graffagna listened to my parents story and my concerns. He asked me more background questions about my parents to get a better view of my situation. Then he worked his magic. He found me assisted places to tour, set up the appointment for me and asked questions on the tour that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. He made this very stressful situation easier for me to make my final decision of where they will spend the rest of their lives. Senior Star is an incredibly amazing free personalized service that I would have been lost without them. Thanks for taking my stress away.
Rick was immensely helpful and patient in our search for both my mom and mother-in-law. We started looking for the right senior community a couple years ago for my mom, pre-COVID. Thankfully, mom declared she wasn’t ready and then COVID hit. We paused with my mom and fairly unexpectedly, we needed to find the right community for my mother-in-law. Then, the right time came for moving my mom. Through all of this, Rick listened, became aware of our moms’ different needs, was patient with the changing circumstances and we found the right places for each of them. Can’t thank Rick enough. I highly recommend him.
Rick was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He listened to our wants and concerns and helped us find the right fit in a memory care facility for our mom.
Rick was a great resource to help me understand how to get my folks into a decent assisted living facility. He also mentioned the "Aid and Attendance" government benefit that my father turned out to be eligible for that I was not aware of. I highly recommend Rick to help anyone navigate the complexities of moving loved ones into an appropriate living facility.
Rick was awesome. We had so many questions from beginning to end. He helped answer all of them and was always available. Navigating was so much easier with Rick leading the way and making contacts.
Rick is a tremendous resource. Anyone who is at a point where they have a loved one in need of professional care, and you don't know where to start, Rick can find a way forward for you in the most caring way
Our family cannot thank Rick at Senior Solutions enough for his help, guidance, knowledge, and sincere care and concern for our mom, as we transitioned her to an Independent Living Center. Our questions were endless and Rick was there to patiently answer every one of them! Thank you Rick from our entire family !!!
We are incredibly grateful to Rick at Senior Solutions. He is an expert in this very complicated field (even more so during times dealing with COVID-19) and was able to save our family so much time and heartache as we searched for an appropriate place for our family member. Rick is a very organized communicator, he conducts his research quickly and makes himself available to truly serve families during stressful times. I absolutely and unequivocally recommend working with Rick at Senior Solutions!
Looking for the best help I could from long distance...yes, I live north of San Diego and POA for relative in Chicago. I have worked with Rick for 4 years and was extremely grateful to find this GEM of a GUY for senior living in Naperville area. Aging process is ever changing and thus, the need for better assistance...Rick set up tours on 3 different trips and I most recently found a great location "The Birches' and the transition took place just as lock downs were taking place. I could not be more thankful that I made trip in February with actual move in March!! Rick is the man and on call as my decision process took turns due to factors beyond either of our controls...a referral to him is pure GOLD! Much appreciation for job well done!
Rick made a really difficult process so much easier. He is so well-known in the senior living industry, so it was like being introduced to the different communities by an old friend. Rick listened to all of our requirements and helped me narrow down the right place for my mom. He went with me on all the tours and that made things so much less stressful. I lost my dad a few months ago, and having Rick there made me feel like I had dad-like support the whole time (complete with dad jokes!).
Seriously, I didn't know where to start, and Rick asked the right questions to narrow things down. He made it all seem not so overwhelming, especially as I was dealing with moving my mom across the country, too.
Rick is a great listener, he has great suggestions and he just made me feel better throughout the whole process. There was never any pressure, and he followed up regularly just to check-in.
If you have no clue where to start, if you don't know what to ask, if you're overwhelmed with finding the right place for your loved ones, Rick is your guy.
Rick was thoughtful and helpful in working with my family to find the right place for my mom. He listened, offered suggestions, and introduced us to communities that would suit Mom's needs. There was never any pressure, just a kind, considerate approach and an honest concern for my family. Thanks, Rick!

Thank God for Rick. I felt as if I was drowning and he was my life jacket. He was so kind, supportive, and knowledgeable. Thank you.
Rick is amazing. Finding a place for our dad is highly emotional and confusing. Rick is very patient, knowledgeable and helpful. I strongly recommend Rick to anyone going through this difficult process.
Rick was a godsend when my sister and I needed assistance placing our father in reminiscence community. His knowledge and expertise were invaluable, and his kindness and patience were so very comforting. I highly recommend anyone navigating this difficult and emotional process to contact Rick. Rick will help guide you to make the best decision for you and your loved one.
Rick was very helpful in helping me understand and learn about the residential options available to my mom. He is honest, hard-working and compassionate.
I found Rick through a friend and he was great. His knowledge on the senior health world is amazing. He knew the questions to ask that I never considered. He was a great guide in a very confusing world.
I highly recommend Senior Solutions. Rick was very helpful, and extremely knowledgeable about the whole process.
I highly recommend Senior Solutions! Rick takes a personal, professional and hands on approach to assisting the families he works with. He truly goes above and beyond and is wonderful to work with!
We engaged Rick in early January after selling our Dad's house quickly and he was the best thing that happened to our process. He lined up tours within a day and 1/2 and we found the perfect place for our Dad.
Rick provided timely and accurate information, answered all of our questions and accompanied us on our facility tour. We were working long distance and he was helpful and professional. I would recommend working with Rick.
Rick was knowledgeable and quick to respond to my emailed questions. He provided a calm, supportive presence through the difficult process of placing my mom into care. Many thanks!
Having to traverse the unknown territory of senior housing options is a daunting task, to say the least. Let's be honest: it's amazingly stressful and can be downright scary at times! I didn't know where to start and had many preconceived notions. My mother's social worker recommended we give Rick at Senior Solutions a call. He was there to guide us and answer all our many (many, many) questions. Not only did he help us navigate this strange new reality and take us on a couple facility tours, he followed up afterward. You can feel absolutely confident in seeking his help.
Rick is a consummate professional. He backs up his expertise with a very compassionate nature and a great sense of humor. Rick not only posed important questions that we would not have considered, but also helped us obtain the right answers.
Rick was very helpful in finding a place for my mother-in-law who is 99 years old. He helped us ask the right questions, as we had no idea where to start after making the very difficult decision to place her in a home. After one week at Belmont Village, we know we made the right decision.
Senior Solutions stepped in and helped our family during a very difficult time. They were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. They were there to help every step along the way. If you are uncertain how to proceed with a family member give senior solutions a call....you will be glad you did.
Rick & Pam were amazingly helpful with helping me through the journey of assisting me to find memory care facilities for my grandma. Highly recommend!
