MEET THE OWNER

Millie has been through nearly all the aging steps with one’s quintessential life-guide, her own mother. “Throughout the last 10 years of her life, my mom guided me towards senior living as a new rewarding career, without even knowing it. What a teacher she was for me after all!” Millie’s affinity with older adults makes her a natural in this field. It makes her someone you can trust to be your partner through this challenging situation. “I have moved more than 100 seniors from their long-term family home to new abodes. This is what I mean by unparalleled experience. I have been there, step-by-step, with my clients as a guide and trusted advisor. I strongly believe that this time of life is for growth, adventure, and freedom. It is achievable… sometimes one just needs a little help! I want to be that person for you.”

Millie Anderson is owner and founder at Mom’s New Pad, offering home and life transition services older adults. With 19 years in mortgage lending and five years in senior living communities prior to creating Mom’s New Pad, Millie brings an unusual set of experiences and resources needed to guide her clients through the mountain of information and the various options available to seniors.

When living in the family home is no longer enabling the elder to thrive as best she can, Millie is your navigator with savvy, compassion and fresh ideas that can make any transition just a little easier. She understands the aging process and how it affects the daily lives of our elders.

As a placement agent, Millie knows all the local senior living communities, including their 
Executive Directors, Sales and Marketing staff, and Nurses. She knows the programs and the services offered in each community, the pricing, and the current availability. Her five years as a Sales and Marketing Director in such communities, qualifies Millie to provide efficiency in your search, expertise in finding the BEST community, and transparency from the senior living communities to help you choose wisely.

She has developed relationships throughout the senior industry locally, making herself an excellent resource for families faced with helping their loved ones make hard decisions. Through Millie, you can locate dozens of professionals such as geriatric care managers, geriatricians, nurses, hospice companies, in-home care providers, skilled nursing homes, bookkeepers, fiduciaries, realtors, financial planners, estate planning attorneys, tradespeople, recreation therapists, counselors, neuro-psychologists, and companions.

Besides her interest in working with our elders, she is a volunteer member of Rotary, Marin Villages, and Jewish Family and Children’s Services as a palliative volunteer. She enjoys the outdoors. She is a native Californian and resides in Marin and Sonoma Counties.
