Abby Durr

Abby is the owner and founder of Silver Age referrals and works as a senior housing specialist covering East King County. As someone who has taken care of a close elderly family member, she approaches the process of finding care with compassion. Her work as a certified nursing assistant, care coordinator and marketing director at an assisted living community contributes to her ability to evaluate the care delivered by providers. Silver Age opened in 2008 and since then the team has helped countless families find safe, quality care.

Alice Kalso

I love being a matchmaker. For some, it’s in-home care, for others, assisted living or an adult family home. It has to be right to work. Alice covers the Northshore area as well as South Snohomish County. She has been working in the elder care field since 1994, marketing and facilitating admissions to retirement, assisted living and skilled nursing. Her love for seniors began years earlier. As a little girl, Alice “adopted” grandpas and grandmas in her father's church. Her recent journey as her parents went through the end of life gives Alice sensitivity to the challenges families face during difficult times. Today helping people, both the elders and their families, is her passion.

Arianne Burnham

When a loved one is transitioned to proper care, I love seeing their family freed from fear of the next crisis. Arianne is a Housing and Care Specialist on the Eastside. She holds a Certificate in Gerontology from UW and worked as a Long Term Care Ombudsman advocating for residents in senior housing. Navigating her mother’s final years and helping her die on her terms helped Arianne realize how vital it is to have a guide. Arianne also filled an important role advocating for an older neighbor with no family in the area. Arianne helps families navigate the transition to the most supportive environment for their needs.

Shelley Guzik

Shelley has worked with seniors as an Occupational Therapist for over twenty years. She has extensive experience helping seniors achieve a high level of independence and advising retirees regarding their safest living environment. This knowledge allows her to intuitively recognize the complex needs of seniors and their families. Shelley was also a source of support and guidance helping her family navigate her Father’s dementia care needs. She believes it is vital for seniors to be able to live where they are loved, have the opportunity to be brave, and feel they belong.

Nancy Lang

Nancy is a Senior Housing Screener focused on the west side of King County. Previously she was a Professional Caregiver to adults with dementia. Nancy made it her mission to keep her clients connected with their communities. Nancy’s educational background in human development and gerontology inform her approach. Her experience gives her a sharp eye as she seeks out great adult family homes and assisted living communities where people will thrive.
