Our Process

Step 1 - Discovery

One of Dowda Senior Consultants’ experienced Senior Advisors will personally meet with you to understand your unique situation. Together, you will discuss your needs, goals, concerns, geography, preferences, and budget. Together, you will discover the best next steps and create a plan of action.

Step 2 - Decision

Our Dowda Senior Consultants team helps you implement the best plan for you, to help you achieve your goals. Our team will help you navigate an array of options so that you have the support and care you need. Whether that looks like making adaptations within the home, for seniors desiring to “age in place,” or scheduling and joining you on tours and visits to senior living communities, for those desiring a move, Dowda Senior Consultants’ goal is to help you find the best fit for your needs.

Step 3 - Action & Follow Up

If you decide to move into a senior living community, we help you with every aspect of the transition to your new living situation. Once the transition is made, our Dowda Senior Consultants’ team will continue to be a part of your lives — bringing birthday cakes, visiting you or your loved one, and advocating for you with the community, as needed. You become part of our Dowda Senior Community, and we are committed to continuing to care for and support you throughout your senior journey!

Walking this Road Alone


Walking this Road with Our Team

Feel lost, confused, or overwhelmed as you attempt to navigate the maze of over 90 assisted living communities in the greater Richmond area.


Be guided every step of the way by our team of experts. We choose several appropriate options for your situation and personally tour facilities with you.

Waste time touring communities that are too big or small/too expensive/too far away/too many violations.


Pinpoint the best choices for your loved one. We are extremely familiar with all the communities in the area.

Prematurely judge a community by how it looks or by one person’s experience and miss out on a great fit for your loved one.


Know what a community is truly like. We keep in close contact with all the families we help, so we can give personal updates from a current resident.

Assume that there is no support once you’ve been given a diagnosis of any type of dementia.


Be supported by a team of dementia experts. We help you plan for the present and the future.


If you are lost in the sea of senior care considerations . . . Jen can help you find the resources you and your loved one need to thrive. And, astonishingly, she does this at no cost to her clients.
