A Note From Christa
“Having two close family members with care needs after a major stroke, I know how challenging it can be to find the right care environment, as well as quality care. I find it extremely rewarding to help people find the right community for their aging parents or family members. I am here to understand your unique situation, provide information, answer questions, and ease your stress during this difficult process. I look forward to making this a smooth transition for you and your loved ones.”
