Hello, I'm Mike McClernon.

I own and operate the Assisted Living Locators office for Long Island and Eastern Queens. My mission is to personally help you and your family find the right Assisted Living or Dementia Care Community for the senior in your life. Think of me as a senior living concierge.

I was motivated to start this business after my experience with my own parents. Like most families, most of the burden of caring for my parents fell onto one child, my sister. My mother's cognitive issues became worse after my father passed, and eventually, her dementia and Parkinson’s became dangerous to both herself and others. We did all that we could, but at the same time could have used some professional advice and input.


I've worked as a Senior Manager for home care and home medical service companies and had a long stretch as the CEO for a couple of national companies. I try to bring both sets of experiences to what I do now—helping seniors get the right care AND finding the best value for you in Assisted Living, Dementia Care, and Independent Living.

Why Assisted Living Locators of Long Island?

I am proud to operate the Assisted Living Locators eldercare advisory service on Long Island and am one of our company's 140 local operators. We were founded in 2003, and each year we place thousands of seniors in great communities. We are not some big internet-based company that doesn’t know your name and sends you an outdated list of possible communities for your family to consider.

I live on Long Island and am personally talking to these Alzheimer’s Care and Assisted Living Communities every day. I am very familiar with the staff and facilities at each community and take the time to genuinely get to know every senior and family that I work with to help place them in the right caring and professional environment.



Our Free Senior Living Services: How We Help You & Your Family

Our senior care advisors serve Long Island and the surrounding areas, including Queens and Eastern New York City. We take a 4-step approach to guiding you and your family through the process of finding the best senior living option.

1. In-Depth Assessment of Your Needs

We want to learn as much as we can about your family’s unique needs and requirements. We dig deep to understand what your family needs and wants in both a new living situation and other support services.

2. Thoughtful Analysis & Recommendations

An Assisted Living Locators care advisor will meet with you and your family to discuss available and appropriate options. We evaluate all aspects of your family member’s situation to find the right match, including health care needs, religious and political affiliations, mobility requirements, budgets, desired social activities, preferred locations, and everything that makes your senior unique.

3. Assistance with Selection Process

We are committed to being compassionate and concerned with your family’s specific needs. We are your comprehensive guide to matching the care you desire with the available living options on Long Island and beyond. The facilities in our network reimburse for our services so that we can remain at no cost to you.

4. Transition Support

When we evaluate a senior living community, we examine not only the amenities but also the special features and characteristics. After we verify the services you need are met by the community, we consider the unique aspects that will make the difference in selecting a home best suited for your loved one. We work with the entire family to ensure the transition process is smooth and reassuring.
