Navigating senior living with ease

As a Certified Director of Assisted Living (CDAL) for over 25 years, I found that families were truly struggling to find the best living situation for their loved ones.  With so many options available from home care to senior housing, it is hard to know where to start.  We are committed to helping seniors and their families successfully navigate the myriad of senior living options to find the best fit for their unique needs and preferences - AT NO COST.  Allow us to make this journey as stress-free as possible, while saving you time and money.

Speaking Topics

We would be happy to provide educational seminars on topics relevant  to senior living and beyond.  We partner with professionals from all industries and would love to customize a program just for you.  Here are just a few topics we can cover:

Everything You Didn't Know About Senior Living

Peggy Breda, a long-time senior living executive and Certified Director of Assisted Living will share insights and "need to know" information about senior living communities from the inside out. The goal is to help point you and your family in the right direction by preparing you to know the following:

  • What questions to ask once you begin  your search.
  • How to evaluate a "right fit" for your situation.
  • Assessing your long-term needs and understanding how they will be met in each environment.

A question and answer will follow the presentation. 


Transitioning Your Loved One with Dementia

Peggy Breda, CDAL (Certified Director of Assisted Living) and founder of A Family Tie,  will discuss strategies and insights to help you, the care partner, and your loved one through this emotional and overwhelming time.  

Meaningful Engagement with Your Loved One Living with Dementia

Learn successful strategies in connecting with your loved one through all stages of  dementia.

Foster relationship building between family, staff, leadership, volunteers and individuals living with dementia. Discover how to promote the value-added potential of including the “voices of those experiencing cognitive change”, while continuing to improve the experience of meaningful engagement.

Senior Living Options and How to Pay for Them

Peggy Breda, CDAL (Certified Director of Assisted Living) and founder of A Family Tie, will review senior living options available in the Northern Virginia area. 

In partnership with select wealth managers,  we will examine the common question that over half of baby boomers will ask, “How do I pay for the cost of senior care options?”

Learn how to put the pieces together to know and understand the resources available for a more secure financial future when looking at long-term care options.

Understanding the Differences in Care Options:

Do you want to understand the differences between independent living, assisted living and nursing care?   We can help clear up any confusion!
