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.

Compassionate & Knowledgeable Advisors

"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."

Helpful Time Saving Advocates

"It's fantastic hearing from someone who is knowledgeable and understanding about our family's current situation. I can't stress enough how grateful I am - your help cut the process in half!"

Micaela T., Found Assisted Living in Pleasant Hill, CA

"Our situation, while probably not unique, had quite a bit of urgency to it, so we needed to find resources as quickly as possible. Countless hours- and most likely days-were completely cut from our search and reduced our stress enormously. But most important was your support, empathy, follow-up, expertise, encouragement and sincere personal touch that was so much appreciated."

Dorothy L., Found Assisted Living in West Milford, NJ

"The countless hours you saved us, the deliberations you aided and observations you confirmed or clarified could not have been achieved without you."

Evelyn W., Found Residential Care Home in Seattle, WA

"A Place for Mom was extremely helpful when it came time to relocate my mom to a memory care facility! Your prompt responses with a variety of solutions were exactly what I needed. I had no idea where to begin to look for the care my mother needed on such a short notice. You were compassionate and knowledgeable. By notifying different facilities for me, I didn't feel so overwhelmed and you gave me a plan of action!"

Holly G., Found Assisted Living in Overland Park, KS

Peace of Mind & New Beginnings

"My father is doing wonderfully in his new community. He thinks it's home! He has gained weight, looks content and even walks better!"

Patty K., Found Assisted Living in Walnut Cove, NC

"Your constant support and follow up during this process has been wonderful. My pop celebrated his 92nd birthday last week at his new home with family. He is adjusting quite well. Our journey of taking care of him was amazingly beautiful and at the same time exhausting. I am enjoying being able to just be the 'daughter' once again."

Pat K., Found Assisted Living in Deland, FL

"We appreciate your assistance in finding a great place for our mother to live! Mom has adjusted very well to living in her apartment. No longer is mom lonely on the sofa napping or watching television waiting for her friend to come for dinner. Our mother enjoys meals with a group of nice ladies. Your help with A Place for Mom was perfect! "
