Here's what Seniors and Families are saying about Old Pueblo Placement Services.

I have worked with Cecil Rinker for over three years and cannot praise him enough for his knowledge of senior living nationwide and his detailed knowledge of senior communities in Arizona. Cecil has established senior communities, run them, consulted to them and monitored them. But what’s equally or even more important is that he is truly empathic with both seniors and their families. I found Old Pueblo on an internet search when looking for an affordable community in Arizona for my parents who needed both independent senior living and assisted living in the same apartment. They had to move from California, where they had lived all their lives, to a less expensive location. Then when my Dad passed, I needed to move my Mom to a higher level of care and again worked with Cecil. Both of these placements were challenging in many different ways, but Cecil worked magic! Even more, he stayed in touch with my parents after they moved and still keeps in touch with my mother. DO NOT compare Cecil Rinker and Old Pueblo Placement to one of the many franchised senior placement companies. He is truly a consultant for your individual needs rather than a computerized directory service. Our family was blessed to find this man, and your family will be too!



Many thanks for the time you invested in helping us find a place for Tom.  Your calls to check on our progress regarding his placement were appreciated.  He is settled into his new apartment and we are truly grateful.

In Appreciation,



Cecil Rinker is a consultant in the relocation of senior citizens into various health care levels and settings.  Cecil is highly experienced and qualitied in his field.  He is a sensitive, caring man who is well-placed in the industry.

Cecil is a quick-study in working with people.  He immediately picks up on needs both expressed and unexpressed and is aware of personalities and clues both overt and subtle.  He does not need to be told something twice.

We were first introduced to Cecil through another member of his profession – always a plus.  When we were visiting a retirement community, I expressed an interest in retaining a consultant to continue our search.  The marketing director of the community we were visiting immediately identified Cecil for our consideration.  She had worked for him when he was an operations director at Leisure Care and has known him for many years.  Her recommendation turned out to be just right for us.  He listened carefully to us, identified a reasonable number of communities for us to visit, and helped identify how they variously met our current and future needs.  He was always professional, neutral and supportive.  The location we chose would never have been on our radar.  Cecil made the difference.

We recommend Cecil without qualification both for individual continuing care placements as well as management, training and leadership in the industry.   He is an effective and sensitive leader as well as a very fine person.  We would be most happy to respond to individual inquiries about him.

I called Old Pueblo Placement Services when I needed to find a place for my 84 year old Mother who suffers from Alzheimers. Cecil helped me to not only find the perfect adult care home in a lovely neighborhood with wonderful caregivers, he became a resource helping us get her house listed with a great real estate agent. He even recommended movers that specialize in moving seniors who handled the move in one day. Thank you so much Old Pueblo Placement Services for all your help.



I wanted to tell you what a pleasant experience it was working with Old Pueblo Placement Services to find a place for my mother-in-law. This was not an easy task, as I did not know what level of care my mother-in-law required. You took me to several places and helped me ask the right questions. This was uncharted waters for me and there is a lot of things to think about. Thank you so much for being patient with me, giving me wonderful advice, and ultimately helping us find the right place. My mother-in-law has thrived since we placed her and this couldn’t have been possible without your helpful advice and caring nature.

Thank you so much!!!


I can't thank you enough for the help and support that you gave us. You two are wonderful for what you do and we are lucky to have you both in our community doing what you do. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you."

We appreciate Old Pueblo Placement Services in helping us find a memory care unit for our 94 year old father. We visited nearly a dozen facilities until we found Catalina Springs and their wonderful programs. Laure and Cecil were patient, caring, and knowledgable. They treated the importance of finding the perfect place for our father as if he was their parent.

Thank you very much,

Diane, Elaine, and Barbara
