Our Mission

To reduce the anxiety of senior care transition by providing current option information and education in a supportive and respectful atmosphere.


Community Care Options was founded in 1999 by Tom Cullen and Eileen Stensrud. With a combined 30 years of experience in hospitality, food service management, assisted living, hospice, and social work, Tom and Eileen focused their passion for the continuum of senior care, and began providing a variety of services to the public and to congregate living facilities throughout California.


Initially their services consisted primarily of senior referral and placement. They worked from a perspective of compassion and dignity when meeting with seniors and their families to consult on appropriate assisted and independent senior living options. Education and training for the employees of the facilities themselves, however, became an integral support for their placement efforts, as they learned through their tours of multiple assisted living facilities that crucial regulations were misunderstood and that staff were rarely well trained.

After Eileen passed away in 2006, Tom continued to grow Community Care Options as an education, training, and licensing consultant. These services have expanded nationally, with online classes offering continuing education units in all 50 states.

Referral and placement services, the heart of the business, remained as a tribute and legacy to Eileen Stensrud. Eileen’s daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Greg Asher, stepped in to further develop the referral and placement business locally, with fantastic results. Since 2006 Community Care Options has assisted thousands of families and individuals to find residential care in Northern California.

In 2017, while developing our franchise model, we expanded our referral and placement services to the remainder of California.  With the franchise expansion a new opportunity developed. In keeping with our family focus and our goal to maintain excellent franchisee support, we welcomed Richard and Sara Stensrud to our ownership team and added a second office in Southwest Florida.  The natural separation between California and Florida provided the frame work we feel is necessary to develop and support new franchisees and further our mission.
