Our Company History and Our Referral Agents

Lady holding up heart sign

Adult Placement Network began providing services to Portland, OR in 1997. Michele Fiasca was operating an Adult Care Home at the time and began to recognize the need for a different kind of service for families who were facing the need to help their loved ones transition from independent living to assisted living. Before long, the rewards of helping families through the maze of adult care setting options inspired a new career path. Helping families find the kind of senior living communities she would feel good about sending her own senior parents to—became the passion of her life.


Michele Fiasca - Co-owner and Founder 

My journey began in the mid-90s as an Adult Care Home Operator, caring for five elderly residents in a home-like setting.  My desire was to create value, belonging, and a home for them.  After several years, I became inspired, thinking I could create a greater impact by starting my own company that could guide families through the challenging process of finding quality care settings.  I found both inspiration and gratification in being instrumental during this overwhelming process and knew this would be my life's work. After all these years it still thrills me when I can facilitate the right match for my clients.  It has been my honor and privilege to serve hundreds of families and I look forward to assisting you!

Cindy Todd - Co-owner and Manager

As a former real estate broker, I appreciate the complexities of transitioning from your own home to a senior living or care community.  By assessing each individual's unique situation and preferences, our company's referral agents utilize a comprehensive and compassionate approach throughout the process in order to find the best possible choices for you or your loved one.  Our agents are dedicated to finding the right senior housing for you. 

Patty Bennett - Senior Referral Agent

I have been in the senior living and care industry in the Portland metro area since 2004.  My background includes nine years at a senior living community, five of which I was a director.  From there I started my own company, Thriving at Home, where I managed private care clients.  Now that I have joined Adult Placement Network, I can utilize all my skills to assist seniors and their families in choosing from all available options to find the best possible fit.  I look forward to working with you and your family!
