Robbie Nathan- Bridge to Better Living- Senior transition consulting company
In 2010, the founder Maryanne Stallings had to find some senior living options for her family members. So she decided to start a company that can come to one company as one resource that is free to the clients. Meet with families to look at independent living, assistant living or even memory care. They get to know them socially, medically and financially to understand their situation so they can contact the community to ensure they have a great experience with a representative who focuses on the client and understands the facility. Although there are a large amount of options out there for senior living, the amenities vary from location to location. The community location reimburses Bridge to Better Living as a referral fee when they bring in a new client. This fee is consistent across all communities so there is no bias. They are also working in Omaha as well as the surrounding areas around Lincoln and Fremont.
