Mark and Rachel Healy

Mark and Rachel Healy know the challenges that families face when the time comes to move their aging loved ones. They have personally experienced the challenges and the stresses of having to make many decisions with few resources. They moved Rachel's parents from rural Virginia to Ohio and had to go through the process of sorting and packing up the family home where Rachel's parents had lived the last 40 years of life. They had to quickly find an acute care facility for her father as well as housing for her mother to live independently. They know the stresses facing the family and the loved ones they are caring for. They want to lessen some of that burden by being trusted partners in offering quality resources, compassion, and care in the process.

Mark has been a physical therapist for 30+ years working specifically with seniors for the last 20+ in a variety of settings. Rachel has a background in medical laboratory science, health insurance, and customer service. With their experience both professionally and personally, they know how to advocate for individuals in the healthcare system. They made the decision to bring Senior Care Authority to the area in order to put those skills together with a company that has the goal of helping families navigate senior living challenges.

Mark graduated from The Ohio State University and received a master's degree from the University of Cincinnati. Rachel graduated from East Tennessee State University with an associate degree in medical laboratory science. They are blessed with 7 adult children and 6 wonderful grandchildren. They enjoy spending time with family, reading, traveling, sports and being present for their grandchildren. They are excited for the opportunity to assist families in making successful transitions in finding the best living situation for their loved ones.

Senior Care Authority was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.

​In 2014, the model was franchised and Senior Care Authority is now a national company with offices throughout the US and Canada. As part of their expansion, they partnered with an eldercare consulting practice who brought another set of senior care services and skills to the company, a great differentiator for Senior Care Authority.
