Reviews and Testimonials

"Dear Carla,

You've been more than a great help to me and my family, especially my mom. As you know I agonized over placing my mom in an assisted living facility, in fact, I fought the whole idea of it until I had no other choice. Mom did pretty good living with me for 2 years then living with my brother for a year although she is now into the moderate stage of Alzheimer's disease. My emotions were almost a hindrance to me to make the best decision for my mom as I wanted more than anything to protect her but the situation was out of my control.

You introduced me to the folks at Emeritus at Villa Colima in Walnut, CA and what a blessing that was! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We moved my mom in about a month ago and she went from being sad and depressed to open and happy once again. She is making friends and participating in all the activities and she even loves the food! She is gaining weight after a pretty big weight loss and believe me, she is a tiny woman who can't afford to lose weight.

We all love you and A Place for Mom!!"

"Knowing that my dad is being so well taken care of has really been a huge relief for our entire family as this was a difficult decision that we knew had to be made."

- Debbie V.

"Your help to find the proper placement for my mother was invaluable. My mother's dementia had greatly advanced and this was obvious upon her arrival. The staff made us feel comfortable from the moment I interviewed the facility and especially on the evening we brought mom over."

- Julie L.
