Lunden spent several days at the APFM headquarters in Seattle to meet with Senior Living Advisors, partake in calls with families in need of senior housing and care, and lead roundtable discussions on the role of caregiving in America today, including an exclusive luncheon at The Columbia Tower Club with more than 50 local Advisors and APFM industry partners. During her discussions, Lunden talked about her story and role as a caregiver for her mother and her personal journey finding a place for her mom to live when she could no longer live alone. Lunden highlighted the value an Advisor brings to the search process and the need for more education and preparation for adult children facing a similar scenario. During her visit, Lunden visited regional affiliates KING 5 (ABC), KOMO 4 (NBC) and KCPQ 13 (FOX) for broadcast interviews on her relationship with APFM, the challenges of caring for an aging loved one and how Americans can prepare for finding senior living and care.

A longtime health and wellness advocate, Lunden has partnered with APFM since January 2012 to help families navigate the complex process of finding appropriate senior living and care options. As APFM continues to grow and deliver best-in-class service to over 200,000 families in the United States each year, Lunden brings a meaningful view and valuable insights to her role, having experienced several of the challenges that many Americans face as caregivers. With Lunden as a continued partner, APFM remains the nation's go-to resource for senior housing information and resources.
