"Grateful does not fully express my feelings after speaking with you. Thank you for your calm and insight and direction. You seem to understand the uniqueness of my situation with Mom, and her 'pickiness' in where she would be comfortable! Thank you!"

Sharon H., Found Assisted Living in Durham, NC

"I knew you were always there for me. You have always been very responsive and very knowledgeable about facilities. I cannot think of anything that would have made the transition easier for me."
