About Elite CareFinders

Elite CareFinders is MORE than your average senior placement agency. Our Registered Nurse Senior Care Advisors go beyond to find the care your loved one deserves.

With over 1,600 senior care homes (residential care homes and adult foster homes combined) in Hawaii and searching for senior services being so complex, Elite CareFinders found a need to provide the community with the resources to find quality senior care options in Hawaii.

Elite CareFinders was founded by Rose Gallego RN, BSN RAC-CT with over 27 years of experience in the healthcare and long term-care industry. She is also nationally certified as a Resident Assessment Coordinator (RAC-CT) which is the gold standard in the long term care arena which focuses on quality care. With extensive experience from working at major hospitals as an RN discharge planner assisting many families with senior care placement or coordinating services for them, as well as prior background working as an Inspector for the adult foster home program, and being nationally certified in the nursing home arena with focus on quality care. Elite CareFinders was started to provide the community resource of quality care senior care options. Elite CareFinders wants to use their clinical expertise to match the client’s individual needs to appropriate senior care services. We make finding senior care easy for families by providing a personalized concierge service.

Due to the overwhelming number of senior care homes and adult foster homes, also complicated by COVID-19 restrictions, Elite CareFinders found a significant need to provide families an easier way to search for senior living options. So, to help families with these challenges, Elite CareFinders developed a modern and quick approach by creating an online gallery of senior care homes and facilities that families can tour with just a simple click of a button! The homes and caregivers are all evaluated before becoming part of our network. The caregivers care for your kupuna and include them as part of their Ohana. The homes are comfortable and welcoming so that your loved one can feel at “home away from home”. We invite you to tour our gallery of homes and contact us with any questions you may have.

“My father has Alzheimer’s/dementia, and I recently had to place him in a care home. This decision was incredibly difficult but ultimately necessary, as we were unable to provide the level of care he needed. His current situation placed his health at risk, and we felt compelled to make the move, but we were unsure where to begin or whom to contact. My niece took to Google, and that’s when we discovered Elite CareFinders. We left a message and crossed our fingers, hoping for a response. Soon enough, the phone rang, and on the other end was Rose. She enlightened us about her services and provided invaluable information about senior care that we had not known. Rose assured us that she would search for quality care homes and get back to us – which she promptly did. Before we knew it, we were on our way to visit our first care home and meet with the caregiver. Armed with the information Rose had given us, we felt more confident in our search and understanding of what to look for. Though we hadn’t met Rose in person at this point, she tirelessly worked day and night to help us. She moved mountains for people she didn’t even know, pouring her heart into our search. Finally, we met Rose in person, and it was wonderful to put a face to the angel who had gone above and beyond for us. Life is never without its challenges, and we encountered a few along the way. However, Rose remained unwavering in her determination and ensured that we didn’t lose hope. Rose accompanied us to three care homes – one of which was a potential care home for my dad. After meeting with them and discussing the details, we realized that this was the right fit. Not only were the caregivers willing to make it affordable, but they also promised to provide a forever home for my dad, all thanks to Rose and her company. We believe that God guided us to Rose because she possesses a humble and beautiful soul. My family and I will forever be grateful for her kindness and dedication. People like Rose, and the work she does, often go unnoticed. I want to share with the world what an incredible person she is and let everyone know that she’s here to help.

DON’T WAIT ANY LONGER! I had been caring for my husband with Alzheimer’s for more than five years and it finally was affecting my physical health and mental wellbeing. I am so happy that I was referred to Elite Carefinders and was expertly and kindly helped by Rose Gallego. She is a master of finding the right place for your loved one and budget. Knowing too well the stress of caring for someone with dementia and the toll it takes on the caregiver, I again urge you to contact Rose!

There are no words to truly express how grateful we are to Rose at Elite CareFinders. From the beginning when I first spoke to her on the phone, I could tell she was a very special person and I immediately knew she was the one I wanted to work with in helping find a home for mom. I originally contacted a different agency for assistance but did not feel the same level of compassion, dedication, professionalism and positivity as Rose. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field and provided us with a step by step guidance throughout the process. Rose went above and beyond in providing excellent customer service. Within 2 days, she provided a list of potential care homes and within a week was able to find a good fit for mom. She even was there for the move in to make sure everything went smoothly. Thank you Rose for everything!!! You are truly a gem and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for excellent service and expertise!
