What I'm passionate about:
I love my dog Simon who is a bichon/poodle, I love being a resource to families who need guidance in helping their loved one's who suffer from memory loss disorders (Alzheimer's/Dementia). I love being around positive people! I love relaxing on a beach and being outside in nature.
I love my coffee in the morning! I love pairing wine and food. I love thin crust pizza,

A Note From Sheyna
"Finding the best care for seniors can be overwhelming and intimidating. As an Advisor, I have a unique opportunity to use both my geriatric social work experience and senior living experiences in a way that provides expert assistance to people during this stressful time. Helping families find the best care option while offering patience, understanding and knowledge is extremely rewarding."

Reviews and Testimonials
"It is clear that your intimate knowledge of the areas resources, their policies and practices, is rich and formidable, luckily for us. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. You made our difficult and confusing decision much easier, and also made it possible to have confidence in the decision we ultimately made. The service that A Place for Mom provides with you as its representative appears to have no counterpart. The countless hours you saved us, the deliberations you aided and observations you confirmed or clarified could not have been achieved without you. You were just wonderful."
"We could not be happier with the resolution. Mom is feeling very good in her new home, and I can visit her almost every day. If I hadn’t reached out to you, I would not have known about this place, and I am very grateful. Without your referrals, I would have looked high and low for a good place, and I think I would have been disappointed. I thank you very much."
"Your services have been invaluable to me. I do appreciate you being there when I needed to talk. One cannot fathom what they may go through to help someone who does not believe they need help, to close down their home, move to an assisted living or with a family member. The transferring of medical records, finances, etc is mentally wearing. To have someone like you to cry and complain to without being judged has been a God sent. Thanks again, and keep doing what you love, there are so many out there that need you."
