Senior Survival Network

Educational discussions/round tables are held at coffee shops, community centers, assisted livings and other venues throughout the community. It provides an atmosphere for seniors and their families to become empowered at the same time reinforcing that whatever they are troubled by, they are not alone. If you have an organization or group of 10+ people the Senior Survival Network of Professionals will come to you.

Seniors and professionals from various industries talk about their current issues and past accomplishments with the goal of learning from each other. In the process they are becoming more educated regarding all options available before they making a decisions.
The senior generation has fought and worked so hard for what they have. Many seniors assume there is no other option than what they hear in the news or read in the paper, they are often tired of fighting or don't know where to go for information and who to trust. In many cases they don't want to admit they have an issue they need help addressing. Seniors are not receiving or seeking the help they need.
We are excited and honored to be able to serve and assist the seniors of our community!

A testimonial as to the character and true intent of the professionals of the Senior Survival Network.

"When our good friend Dewey asked us to attend a round table discussion type meeting, we were a bit hesitant, not because of Dewey, but because of past experiences.
We were literally blown away with the people, concept, and true desire to be “of service” that we experienced at our first senior survival network discussion.

After the meeting, Marilyn and I, were discussing the ramifications of the ideas that were present and started thinking of friends and family that could benefit from the services offered by this group.

Because we are “Senior Citizens”, our circle of friends and many of our family members are also in our position of life.

My father will soon be in a position of needing some in-home care and possibly other senior community services.

We are sending Reverse Mortgage least to Dewey and talking to some friends about his wonderful services.

It is comforting to know that “Gentiva” and Julie Williams home care is available in case of our need of their services.

We are excited about the services available from LeSieur, Inc. and have been telling people about it.

I sincerely hope this concept works and Marilyn and I are willing to help promote and encourage this service wherever we can."

Ron and Marilyn of Vancouver, Washington
