As a fellow provider with a vision for expansion our founder, Daniela Torkelson, saw a need within the adult family home industry to bring together a team of qualified individuals who could assist providers by removing the weight and burden of finances, compliance, and various aspects of the business. Because of her vision, My AFH was created. Our team of professionals work directly with the AFH provider to ensure that your loved one receives a standard of excellence in care, comparable to that of a corporate-run institution.

Family owned and operated since 1995 as experienced senior care professionals in the greater Seattle metropolitan area, My AFH is a name that you can trust. Our value added-service allows us to remove the weight of the business from the provider at no additional expense to you. By doing so, the providers that we consult are able to solely devote their time and efforts into providing personalized care for your family member.

Families are asked to make monumental decisions about their loved one’s placement in residential care, usually without the luxury of time. At Golden Sherpa, we created a platform for families to find senior living options, information to help care for loved ones, and learn about supportive solutions in the senior living space.

Golden Sherpa is a platform marketplace, not a referral or discharge agency. At Golden Sherpa seniors-living providers, their partners, suppliers, customers, and anyone interested in making a positive contribution to the senior living experience can connect.

Experts in the fields of information technology and market research who struggled to find senior living information for their aging parents founded Golden Sherpa. After meeting, listening, and learning from communities, senior living service providers, and adult children, they developed the Golden Sherpa platform for the senior living community, and its customers to connect and interact directly.

Reduce your referral costs by marketing directly to adult children and professionals searching for available placement in residential care.
