What I'm passionate about:
With more than 20 years of experience in the health care field as a social worker and geriatric care manager, I love being able to help seniors with resources so they can live their life to the fullest. I also love to sing country music and have my own independent album called "Looking for Mr. Right."

A Note From Annelle
"Having worked in the healthcare industry for the past 20 years, I know just how difficult it is to find the right place for your loved one, and sometimes the limited amount of time you are given to find that special place. My grandmother was placed in a skilled nursing community and I knew at a very young age that there should have been alternative resources to provide her a better quality of life. I truly feel that A Place For Mom can help you to make difficult decisions regarding long term care while offering you peace of mind.”

Reviews and Testimonials
"I can't begin to express my sincere thanks to Annelle Travis at A Place fMom. When I called for help, Annelle was ready to help. She made appointments for me. She listened to my concerns about the right kind of care my mom needed. She found appropriate places for me to check out near where I live so that I can visit my mom frequently. Annelle's experience as a Geriatric Care Manager and her knowledge of hospitals, home health and assisted living made me feel secure in her assistance. She was able to fill me in on how the hospital works and the right placement after the hospital stay. Annelle was so helpful and was often emailing me late into the night. I can't thank Annelle enough for her willingness to help me through this difficult time. I truly felt her love and support."

"Annelle was a bright light during a very difficult family time. I live in WA State. Annelle helped me locate a care facility in Los Angeles, so that I could relocate my failing health father from the San Fernando Valley. Annelle worked day and night to find a place that would accept his condition, in order for him to be near my supporting family in Los Angeles. He was able to spend some quality time with family prior to passing-away. Annelle, thank you and A Place for Mom for helping my family come together during the worst of times. You are wonderful people to provide this service."

"I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in finding a facility for my husband.
I was impressed that I got so many responses in such a short period of time but more importantly that you had passed on correctly all of his specific needs. Therefore it was easy to choose those places that allowed his dog, and could accommodate his special dietary and physical needs.
This saved me so much time by not having to run around town looking at sites that were not right for him.
As you know, we found the perfect place for him, that provides " loving care" and specific assistance for his special needs. In this time of conflicting emotions it was very comforting to know you were there for me with my numerous calls and questions. You never failed to search out the information and get back to me in a timely manner.
Thank you again, and I know you have many clients, but you always found time to assist me as if I was the only one."
