We've Been There

No matter if you are facing a dementia diagnosis or another catastrophic condition that is altering your loved one's world, we know what you are going through because we have lived it.


Our founder's story of caregiving and navigating the senior living maze begins when her mother was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2002. For 12 years, Laurie stood by her mom’s side as her mom was treated for debilitating neurological and physical symptoms with little to no success. In 2014, Laurie’s mom received a formal diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and while Laurie had seen her mom’s significant cognitive decline, the official diagnosis was devastating.


Within months of her mom’s Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis, Laurie realized her father was no longer able to provide the care and oversight that her mom needed. In order to give her mom and her dad the quality of life they deserved, Laurie and her family found themselves trying to place her mom in a memory care community.


As they fumbled their way through finding the right place for her mom, Laurie and her family were ridden with extreme anxiety, guilt, and uncertainty. Without any guidance, they chose a community they thought would be able to care for her through end of life, only to be faced with moving her again when her care needs could not be met. 

With much more knowledge about senior living the second time around, they found a wonderful place where Laurie's mom would receive the love, care, and quality of life that she so deserved. She lived there until her passing in 2018. 

Here to Guide You Every Step of the Way

Laurie’s journey with caring for and placing her mom was life-changing. She found her passion, purpose, and calling to take what she learned and create a way to help others who were in the same situation.


In 2018, Laurie started iNavigate to ensure that no one has to face things alone. You don’t have to do this alone, either.


At iNavigate, our team members have been through senior caregiving and placement personally. We are here to hold your hand and guide you through, every step of the way. Let us point you in the right direction so that you can focus on what matters most: your loved one and your relationship with them. 

Meet Our Team

We are fortunate to have a team of dedicated and connected senior care professionals on the iNavigate team. All of our Advisors are here to get to know you, your loved one, and their needs. We will be by your side as you find the best senior living solution for your situation.

Our Advisors are all local to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We aren’t a part of some huge national chain. Instead, we know the names of the people who work in senior living communities in the area. We go to open houses and meet the team members who are working in communities.  We are always ready to get to know the professionals that serve seniors in our area as well as the support that is available throughout the DFW Metroplex.
