Welcome to Adult Placement Network
Michele Fiasca Owner and Founder: Greetings! My name is Michele Fiasca and I am owner and founder of Adult Placement Network (APN). It all began back in 1997 when I became an Operator of an Adult Care Home and then started my own placement and referral agency. After 18+ years of helping families find appropriate care settings for their loved ones, it still thrills me when I am able to assist a family in finding a great match. It has been my honor and privilege to serve hundreds of families and look forward to assisting you.
Trina Olson Family Advisor: I have always adored the elderly. As a young child I remember learning from my grandma, great aunts and uncles. As an adult I became interested in dementia when my mother was diagnosed in 2005. My passion led me to complete certification in gerontology in 2014 and after doing a stint as a caregiver for my sister’s in-laws, I joined the Adult Placement Network team. I feel a sense of satisfaction in helping families find the care setting where their loved one will thrive, not just survive. I believe it is our responsibility to care for those who have come before us. My contribution is to assist them in finding their new home.
Patricia Smith Family Advisor I love educating families about all the senior living and care setting options and I am passionate about helping them find the right match. I have worked in the senior industry for 35 years, starting as an outreach coordinator at the Sandy Senior Center. I transitioned into management and marketing for various senior communities including Mary’s Woods, Willamette View, Avamere and Good Samaritan Society Fairlawn Village. I have served many years on the board of directors for low-income senior housing in the Gresham area. I am also a member of Soroptomist International Gresham and active in my church, Lynchwood Christian.
