Meet Alana

Meet Alana

Hi there, I’m Alana. I have always had compassion for the elderly. What has shaped my passion and interest is my experience of seeing my mother’s anguish when she had to place my grandmother in a nursing home. My mother is 96 today and whenever she speaks of her mother, tears come to her eyes. I was a teenager when I vowed that I wanted to help families.

My career spans working for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The American Lung Association and Silverado Memory Care community. I have been privileged to work with families, hold their hands through difficult decisions and help impact the quality of life for them and their loved ones.

You have my word that your experience with me and with Time to Move Care Placement, Inc. will be steady and patient, and will save you the many pitfalls inherent in searching for quality eldercare.

“Thank you for all you did for us… I couldn’t have done it without YOU!


“I truly do appreciate you looking into other options and sending in the email that you did. It’s good to know that families like mine do have advocates such as you to help in what you know to be a very difficult process.”

Deb T.

“I cannot thank you enough and would love to send you a thank you somehow if you do not mind providing a mailing address. I really am grateful for the work you do.”


“Thank you very much for the referral- looks like a beautiful place. Once again, i apologize for not contacting you earlier this morning about Dale’s worsening condition. I so appreciate you helping us. You have been wonderful”


“It’s amazing to me when I reflect back only two months, how far we’ve come in locating a place for her to live, moving her into the facility, arranging for the estate sale, handling her financial matters, and not the least of which, working on the VA application with the Center for Elder Veterans Rights.”


“On behalf of my sister and Tim and I, we want to thank for your help through this whole process over the course of, over a year now. We couldn’t have done it without you. Much appreciated. I’ll be here for one more week and then heading back to Montana. Wish you all the best.”
