See why Assisted Living Locators of Long Island is your go to senior care advisor for all your loved one’s needs.
As most people, I am new to the idea of finding a place for your elderly parent to live. I saw Seniorly and called. Mike McClernon returned my call. My mother had the perfect new home within 24 hours! Mike is the most lovely, easy to speak with, honest man I have ever spoken to. Not pushy! He knew exactly what I wanted and needed for my mother and matched us up with an available spot at a gorgeous memory care facility. I literally did not have to do one thing except call him. The service is no charge and that is no joke! I went to see the “facility” which I would call a beautiful new home in a supportive community instead. Everything was managed for us, every question answered. Mike made something I was dreading a good experience. Imagine placing your mother somewhere new being a GREAT experience? It was just that because of Mike McClernon. Last night I had the best sleep I have had in ages because I feel so relieved my Mom is safe and truly cared for. Thank you Mike!
Not only was Mike invaluable in helping pick the best assisted living facility for my parents he made the process understandable, less stressful and gave a vast wealth of resources besides. Couldn’t have done it without his kindness, compassion, and expertise.
Mike is an exceptionally compassionate and understanding person. I worked with him to place my husband in an assisted living facility. After realizing I could no longer care for my husband (who has dementia) alone, Mike was supportive and more than helpful in making the process easier and more pleasant than I ever thought possible. He narrowed down the possibilities which seemed overwhelming to me when I started researching by myself. He listened to my concerns and my fears and reassured me that I was not making a hasty decision but a decision that took 7 long years. Mike toured the facilities with me and asked questions I would not have thought to ask. I would highly recommend Mike McClernon for anyone finding themselves ready to place a loved one in assisted living. I cannot imagine going through this process without Mike’s guidance. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would.
What a wonderful experience working with Mike at Assisted Living Locators! He was so knowledgeable and worked so quickly to help me find a wonderful facility on such short notice. I recommend him highly!
Mike McClernon of Assisted Living Locators proved to be an invaluable resource in helping our family understand our options for finding the right assisted living facility for our mom. Mike listened closely and developed an excellent understanding of mom's capabilities and needs. He was able to identify appropriate assisted living facilities that matched our situation. Mike’s expertise made a potentially daunting undertaking manageable. Quite frankly, I'm not sure how we would have done this without him. Our mom is now residing in one of the facilities that we toured. We are very satisfied with the facility and their staff. Our family feels deeply indebted to Mike McClernon for the invaluable assistance he provided in helping us navigate this significant transition for our family.
Mike was great. He was very knowledgeable, patient, understanding, and proactive. He clearly cares about his clients. Mike made a very difficult process much more comfortable than it would otherwise have been.
Mike McClernon, CSA (5+ stars) was my advisor as I began my search for a senior living location. Mike is to be trusted and respected as an expert in his field! I was no longer able to enjoy or live in my house after 47 years and I didn't know where to start. All that changed when I met Mike. Mike's knowledgeable about the various living centers available from Independent, to Assisted, to Memory Care, and also Dementia care... What made Mike so special is that he got to know ME! What I needed, what I wanted, what I could afford and that facilitated pointing me to a great variety of locations from which to choose. He drove me to the locations and sincerely worked with me on what I liked... or didn't care for. An added advantage in working with Mike is that the Managers and Administrators of the Facilities we visited knew Mike and trusted his expertise in matching potential residents with the offerings of a facility. I got lucky, you will too.
Mike McClernon is a very kind man who is extremely well-knowledged in his profession as an Assisted Living Advisor/Placement Planner. With needing to place my Mother who has Dementia in an Assisted Living/Memory Care Facility, he advised which facilities would fall short of Moms care and which ones that she would thrive and have the care she needs for all her days, and more. When giving him details of my Mothers well-being, dementia and finances, he knew the pros and cons of so many facilities regarding specifically what would be in her best interest now and later, that I was just so impressed him. He was simply compassionate, HONEST, and filled with information beyond my questions including VA Aid & Assistance/NYS Vouchers vs Medicaid. He offered his services without hesitation, responsive with answering my call and text, gave me an abundance amount of his time, and has let me know that I can reach out to him any time should I need his advice. It was a pleasure and comfort working with Mike. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Should you read this, Thank you Mike!
I give Mike my highest rating. Knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Always willing to help and give advice. A good person, period. Helped me make sound decisions about my wife who has Lewy Body Dementia.
I became acquainted with Mike thru a webinar held by the JCC in Oceanside about assisted living facilities. I was so impressed that I contacted him about finding a facility for my father. Mike was readily accessible, professional, and calm. This process is stressful, and he always made me feel like he had my back and never left me hanging. In addition to finding an appropriate place for my dad, Mike went way beyond the call of duty. As other questions came up, I was able to turn to Mike for guidance. If he didn’t have an answer, he got answers from his contacts in the industry. He is a wonderful resource. I highly recommend using him — you won’t be sorry!

Though I only got to work with Mike through the phone, he was absolutely AMAZING! My mom was denied entry to another assisted living facility. Mike jumped in and gave 110+% to helping me and my mother get through the process of getting to, selecting, and getting into another facility. Mike picked up my mother and planned visits to several assisted living facilities that he thought would be suitable for my mother (after getting to know her through his excellent questioning of me!) My mother said Mike was outstanding during one of the initial interviews at one of the facilities, as he helped think of and ask questions that she did not think to ask. Mike showed true care, support and professionalism throughout the entire process!
Mike was knowledgeable, professional and beyond helpful! Five stars.

Mike took the time to review our situation and give his best and open advice. We have not made a decision as yet on our loved one's community so I expect there will be more dialogue
Went out of his way to be helpful and displayed great kindness to my parents
Mike is simply fantastic. Kind, knowledgeable, and forthright, he carefully listened to my situation regarding the memory care requirements for my mother and the costs affiliated with that level of care. He counseled me on the various options available on Long Island and prepared (within an hour of our discussion) a list of possible locations for me to review as well as financial assistance available through New York State. He's top-notch and highly recommended.
Mike is very knowledgeable in this field! He gave me a lot of insight into senior assisted living as well as in-home assistance. Gave me fantastic advise about Medicaid and how it can be obtained with the help of an elder care attorney. I was totally satisfied with Mike's guidance and recommendations.
Our family needed to find a memory care facility for our mother. Mike has been a Godsend. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring. He answered all our questions and gave us great advice. He helped at a time when we needed someone we could trust. I am thankful he was there for the process.
I am very fortunate to have been connected with Mr. Mcclernon to help with my mother's Assisted Living selection. His knowledge and moreover intelligence gave me great confidence in making a decision. I was quickly given the information I required, but the best part was getting the insight of someone with excellent analytical skills so I didn't waste time and energy going in the wrong direction. It's obvious to me that Mr. Mcclernon cares very much about the people seeking his help.
