I’ve known Jean for a long time and she is professional yet caring and sincere in finding the right location for each client.


Jean and Sunshine Placement Services is incredible! She cares deeply about her clients and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure they’re taken care of. If your family member needs guidance with placement assistance, there’s no better person to guide you through the process than Jean Vaccaro!


I have known Jean for over a year both personally and professionally. She is one of the nicest ladies I have ever met and her devotion and passion to finding the right placement for our loved ones as they enter their twilight years is first class. When my 86 year old mother is ready for a different living situation, Jean its the only person I will reach out to. I can recommend her services and compassion without reservation.


Jean has a big heart and is a wealth of knowledge in the placement services industry. You can trust that she is looking after you and giving you the best options to consider for you or your loved ones.


I would highly recommend Jean Vaccaro from Sunshine Placement Services. I was referred to Ms. Vaccaro from my longtime financial officer. She helped me find a facility for my mother who has dementia.


I provided Ms. Vaccaro with all the needed information regarding my mother’s finances and condition, and she promptly found a few places that met that criteria. My mother has since passed away, bit I won’t forget the services she provided me during 2019 and 2020.


Ms. Vaccaro was friendly, professional and caring when I dealt with her. She was clear and concise in the manner in which she conveyed the information to me, and continued to guide me throughout the stressful process. During these extremely stressful times, she was a beacon of light, which I sorely needed.


Jean at Sunshine Placement Services is amazing at what she does. She ACTUALLY spends the time that is needed in order to correctly analyze what your needs and wishes are. When you work with Jean, you are truly working with the “godfather” (or godmother in her case) of this important industry. She knows who’s who and what is what. You can trust that Jean will take care of you. Her whole heart is in her work. I highly recommend Jean for you senior care placement needs.


Working with Jean was such a pleasure. She is patient, kind and always reassuring with her clients. Jean has many resources to draw from to assist her clients with their transition which makes the entire process so much smoother. It’s obvious that she truly cares and is invested in each of the people and their family that she works with. I have full confidence in Jean’s services and would recommend her to all of my family and friends.


Jean is a ray of sunshine to work with! She has the knowledge and expertise to help in a wide variety of circumstances and has helped my family’s loved ones. There is no one else I would trust more and I would highly recommend reaching out to Sunshine Placement Services!


I’ve known Jean for two years now as the facilitator for South Bay Senior Providers. Although Jean has not yet placed clients with me at Sungarden Terrace, I know she is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Her clients’ needs come first and foremost. She is a woman of passion and compassion.


Jean is knowledgeable, personable and will not stop until she finds the perfect Home for you or your parents.


Jean Vaccaro from Sunshine Placement Services is one of the most caring, thoughtful and generous people in San Diego.

Jean helped us narrow down the options of facilities which made this stressful time much easier to manage. She had great knowledge of the vibe of each facility and helped us choose one that matched our price range and would be the best choice for our loved one as well. I’m so glad we had her trained eye on what to look for and help going through this process when it comes to finding the best fit for her clients. I highly recommend Jean Vaccaro at Sunshine Placement Services.

Jean - thank you for your professional expertise mixed with your awesome level of genuine caring throughout the process of your helping me find a a retirement community for my sister and brother-in-law! I am more than grateful for the time you spent taking us around and around until they found just the place. Your patience was remarkable, and I might add, made this emotionally sensitive move go far more smoothly than I thought was possible. And most important, I guess, the results: I am happy to report that my sister and brother-in-law are safely and comfortably living in their new retirement community apartment. I thought it would never happen, and it wouldn’t have happened without you! You are a knowledgeable, experienced, authentically empathetic person who worked so hard on our behalf. I am happy to recommend your services to anyone who is trying to place themselves or their loved ones in a retirement community in San Diego. Thanks again!


When it is time to have an elderly family member taken care of, no one will care as much about them as you do - except for Jean Vaccaro. Everyone is different and has different needs. She ensures that people are going to the right place and that the correct placement for them specifically is happening. I highly recommend Sunshine Placement Services to assist anyone who is in the process or needing to have an elderly family member taken care of.


Very professional and helpful in placement options! Jean knows her clients as well as the possibilities in a wide range of locations and options.

Thank you for all of your kind words!
