Our Process

We start by completing a needs assessment and questionnaire together. This usually takes 20 – 30 minutes to complete and can easily be done over the phone!​



Based on the results of the questionnaire, we refer you to the top two or three senior living communities or care homes that best meet your needs. We do the leg work for you.​



We help you understand what to look for while touring and which questions to ask. You will quickly discover that each community and care home has its own personality.



We offer resources to make this a smooth and seamless transition for your family, including: home companion care companies, home health companies, downsizing companies, senior move managers, elder law attorneys, Veteran’s Benefits and more.



"Lorri was a huge help with relocating my mother in law to an assisted living home!! She helped on moving day and beyond!! Lorri navigated a very difficult process for me and my family and I am so grateful to have found her!!"


"Lorri's ability to connect with the senior population is remarkable, none like I have ever seen before! Lorri does not only recommend communities - she goes above and beyond by accompanying tours, assisting with the actual move in, and following up after the move in."


"We will be forever indebted to Lorri & her service for the peace and comfort that she has brought to me and my family with the placement of my mother into a facility that was just like her home."



About us

Susan Heymann

I was born and raised in the North Shore of Chicago. After attending Miami of Ohio, I worked as a stockbroker for several years before settling down in Deerfield where I raised three wonderful children. My recent experience caring for my aging father connected me with many different people in the greater senior living community. I love helping all people and find meaning in working alongside seniors and their families. ​In my spare time, I enjoy painting, antiquing, gardening, and playing with my dogs. 


Ronda Parmacek

I am excited to join and be an integral part of Senior Living Specialists Chicago! I chose a career working with seniors after helping guide my grandparents through the maze many years ago. I now have over ten years of experience in the Senior Living industry, and I have worked both inside and outside communities in many different capacities. In addition to care & safety, I know from an internal perspective what it takes to "make a community great." And because of my experience working outside of communities, I know what it takes to find families the "right fit" for their loved ones.
The search itself can be very overwhelming and difficult, not only for your loved one but for the entire family. I hope I have the privilege of working with your family to find the right solution that will keep your loved ones safe and enrich their life as well.


Amy spent over 20 years in Corporate Sales before transitioning to her calling of working with and for Seniors and families. She has a gift of deep listening skills, empathy and passion for helping others. Amy has worked in an Assisted Living and Memory Care community and so she comes to the table with the experience to assist families with this insight and knowledge. Amy truly cares about what is right for the person and will work hard to assist people in their time of need.

With an MSW from UC Berkeley, my personal experience providing guidance and placement for family and friends has inspired me to open the Senior Living Specialists branch in Philadelphia. To help families who are overwhelmed with the maze of senior care options and in need of guidance in placing a loved one into the appropriate senior residence community provides immense personal fulfillment.
