A Note From Deb

“There are sometimes tough decisions to face when dealing with the elderly. As a Certified Senior Advisor I have the knowledge and training to guide families through these decisions. Each situation is unique and requires listening, discernment and honoring the values and wishes of the family members involved. I have experienced this twice in my own family and the solutions for each were quite different. I feel honored each day by the trust and gratitude of the families I serve.”

Reviews and Testimonials

"I had no sooner filled in the information on the A Place for Mom website and hit the send button--when I was contacted by them and given an advisor to work with. Deb Hansen was wonderful in guiding me thru a very difficult process and advising me as to what my next steps would be. Mom was placed in a Memory Care facility within a week and the timing could not have been better. We were at a critical stage in her illness and needed help ASAP.

My family wants to thank Deb Hansen and know that “A Place for Mom” is a wonderful service to all who need this help with elder care placement. Unbelievable is the only word I know that begins to express how we feel about this wonderful website and the advisors that are there to listen and guide you.

A heartfelt thanks from my family and especially my Mom. Thanks Deb- know what you do makes such a difference to all who use your service. You are the BEST!" - Cheryl H.

"I want to thank you for the invaluable help you provided in my search for a quality assisted living arrangement for my mother. We are extremely excited about Pine Ridge of Hayes in Sterling Heights and how much she is enjoying her new life there. She hasn't been there 2 weeks yet, but is adjusting well and is happy. She is 96 and seeing the light back in her eyes is priceless!

Your advice about the whole process of choosing a place for Mom was key to my being able to both go forward with the decision to find a place for her and actually locating the ideal arrangement.

Thank you so much. Our family is very grateful for the service A Place For Mom provides." - Cheryl M.
