I have an elderly father, suffering from some recent and
somewhat serious health events. Having seen the Joan Lunden
commercial on TV I actually had the website in mind. I went on the
website, answered a few questions, and was contacted by phone
within minutes. The lady that called back was very pleasant and
explained that I would be patched through with someone to help me
move forward with my inquiries.
I thank the A Place for Mom team for their professionalism and
compassion while steadfastly keeping privacy concerns in mind.
While I would imagine you are as modest as you are nice and
sincere, I must insist that you forward this email to a manager or
someone else that ought to see my sincere gratitude for all that
you did. You took the time to explain options available especially
if Dad would be willing to move to Toronto where I am located.

"My Grandmother is very happy there, and even has a
'boyfriend'! She is 98, he is 81 - and they sit together and
hold hands. She said, 'Why didn't you send me here earlier?
This is a great place for people like me, we have so much fun here,
we play bingo and have arts and crafts!'
I believe she has forgotten that she never wanted to leave her
home, and how much of a fight she put up when we wanted her to
move. Again, we are thankful that it all worked out and she
is now happy and able to socialize again."
