We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

"You were so warm, calm and caring over the phone. At that time, I was so frustrated and angry as I couldn't get any caseworker, doctor, nurse, etc. at my father's psychiatric hospital to call me back to guide me in what to do next with my dad. You worked with me, gave me a list of leads and calmed me down so effectively. Thank you so much!"

Jon G., Found Assisted Living in Louisville, KY

"My mother has adjusted quite well to her new home. They assigned one of their 'ambassadors' to show her the ropes and now she has gone on a few trips and started to participate in the in house activities. She has called some of her friends and raved about the place. She never had this level of care or consideration. She has even said that she never appreciated anything as much as this move. Believe me, that was a shocker!"
