Meet Sarah Ordover
Sarah is a trained aging specialist with particular knowledge of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia from her work with Alzheimer’s Los Angeles. An entrepreneur and social activist, Sarah found a way to merge her passion to make a difference with her ability to build and run successful companies with Assisted Living Locators.
Sarah grew up in New York and Los Angeles with an entertainment-industry father. Helping her father through his last years, with all the attendant stress and confusion, gave her first-hand experience into the challenges facing families. Learning about Assisted Living Locators and how it eases families like hers through difficult times proved to be a "eureka" moment. Finally, vocation and avocation joined together for her in a way she can effectively help others.
Over the course of her thirty-year career, Sarah played an instrumental role in the development of the first online shopping service, did the PR for “Upstairs, Downstairs,” worked a consulting gig helping new technology start-ups throughout Europe, and started and managed a $4 million franchise in Eastern Iowa. Sarah also has spent countless hours working for the public good – as the multi-year board president of a regional Planned Parenthood, as an advisor and board member of a low income housing development, and as a Meals on Wheels volunteer.
Sarah is an avid tennis player, active member of Wilshire Blvd Temple, and proud mother of two terrific adult children.

There are lots of places and lots of things to consider and so many questions to ask. We started out on our own and it was just a daunting experience. But when we discovered Sarah, everything fell into place.
