We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

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.

"Thank you for that encouragement. I am amazed at his improvement, he is doing better than he was a year ago. He even said last week that he wished he made the move 2 years ago! He loves the food and has gained 12lbs since moving in. He apparently is playing the piano almost daily, which people seem to love and request songs. Thank you for everything."
