Dana – Overwhelmed and Urgent

Situation: Dana’s husband’s aunt was no longer able to stay in independent living and needed to quickly find an alternative. Dana realized it was up to her to solve this problem, but didn’t know where to start.

Solution: Dana's local Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom gave her the emotional support she needed, and helped her quickly get up to speed and move forward on her options to find a place for her aunt-in-law to live.

Melissa – Having the Conversation

Situation: Melissa is a Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom. She found herself in a position where her own family needed her help. It was time for her father to consider senior care options and she was intimidated to have the conversation with him. As a very proud man with a life-long independent spirit, her dad worked as a forester his entire career and loves the outdoors. Melissa was worried how he would react to leaving his home and close proximity to nature.

Solution: Melissa reached out to other local Advisors at A Place for Mom to get the support and guidance she needed in order to have the conversation with her own parents. This reinforcement gave Melissa the confidence and she needed to move forward. She found a senior community for her dad in a wooded setting that he appreciated.

Okemah - The Caregiver

Situation: Okemah and her husband were sharing their duplex with her parents when Okemah fell and broke her shoulder and her foot. Caring for her parents became more difficult and impossible when her dad fell and broke his hip. She realized she could no longer provide them with the care they needed.

Solution: Okemah's local Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom gave her guidance on having the conversation with her parents, finding a place for them to live, and providing help in finding additional financial assistance to make a move possible. It was a relief to Okemah to find someone who could help guide her through this very challenging situation.

Belinda W., Found Assisted Living in Oshkosh, WI

"More than once, I truly know that you saved my sanity by giving words of wisdom and encouragement in this journey of care. One time in particular, I think you talked with me for almost an entire hour, while I wrote notes and calmed down. Thank you so much for all that you have done for us!"

Alice S., Found Assisted Living in Austin, TX

A Place for Mom made my search for an assisted living facility so much easier by streamlining my options and saving me hours of online searching...Having A Place for Mom as a "mentor" gave me a lot of emotional support during a time of high anxiety about how to handle an aging parent with dementia.

Beth M., Found Assisted Living in Greenfield, WI

"Thank you for all of your help with mom. She is very happy and frankly I don't think she could have found a more suitable place. She is so happy with her room that she invites everyone to come up and see how comfortable she is."
