Find Senior Living and Care Options
Making the right care decision for your loved one can be a daunting task filled with stress, tension and pressure. There are so many assisted living, memory care, nursing, and other care options available in Fairfield County, Connecticut and Westchester County, New York - the terminology is often unfamiliar. Senior Care Authority® will streamline the process to make it easier for you to make an informed decision.

Our national team of Senior Care Advisors spends countless hours inspecting locations, from mid-to-larger size communities as well as smaller, residential care homes, meeting the staff and reviewing state reports to advise you of any citations that may have been issued against a particular location.

A Senior Care Advisor will meet personally with you to discuss your options, accompany you on visits to locations and ensure that all your questions are answered. The hallmark of our service commitment is that we are by your side every step of the way. We would be happy to put you in contact with an advisor in your area who will provide you with expert advice on any of the assisted living locations listed in our directory of locations.

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.

“8 Additional Ways We Can Help You”

Harold & Kyle Spitzfaden

Harold Spitzfaden and his son Kyle are co-owners of Senior Care Authority in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Westchester County, New York. Both of them come from diverse backgrounds and make an incredible team.

assisted living consultant Harold Spitzfaden

Harold is an attorney and CPA with extensive business experience and education. He has held executive leadership positions at both large public and private companies. As a result, Harold has worked extensively with people in these organizations and developed excellent listening skills to properly understand the underlying issues of a problem in order to determine the most effective solution. It is this background that has provided Harold the expertise to assist seniors and their families address the many challenges they face involving their future life choices.

Harold’s personal family experience was the genesis of wanting to assist seniors to deal with the many issues they face in later life. His father was afflicted with Parkinson's disease. His family was constantly faced with determining the best way to address the issues he was experiencing. This created significant stress for his family for many years. In addition, caring for his mother in the later part of her life was also very challenging. There was a constant concern as to what was the most appropriate ongoing care and was she safe. The fact no one in his family lived nearby increased the challenges of caring for his parents. Having a caring experienced advisor would have been invaluable in addressing the health needs of his parents and providing elder care consulting, as needed.  As a result of these experiences, he knew he would eventually want to provide service to the elderly and that it would be extremely rewarding to know he could make a difference in the life of an individual and his or her family.

It is critical to have strong relationships with assisted living communities, residential care homes, hospitals, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia communities and skilled nursing homes.

He chose Senior Care Authority, which is a nationwide organization, due to the truly caring attitude of all the people connected with the organization. This was the most important factor in his decision. In addition, the training, systems, teamwork, and sharing of ideas among owners provide the basis for a “best in class” organization now and for the future.
