Rhonda & Denise

“During a very emotional and stressful time in my and my sister’s life, it was such a blessing to work with you. I am so grateful my parents’ geriatric doctors office provided me your contact info.

Once my sister and I met with you, we described our feeling as being “hopeful” after months of struggling with exhaustion, sadness and being overwhelmed by the ever increasing needs to care for both of our parents at their home. We knew moving to assisted living was the right answer, but with so much emotion involved, we needed your knowledge and expertise.

Not only do you have that expert knowledge, but your compassion, personal experience and kind manner gave us more than hope as we continued through the process with you. It gave us confidence in doing the right thing and finding a wonderful place, within our budget, that provides our mom and dad great care, a lovely, safe home, excellent meals and more, which allows us to visit often to simply enjoy their company.

Thank you again for your exceptional service to help our family in very difficult times. We are all laughing and smiling much more these days.”
