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.

Helpful Time Saving Advocates

"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

"Find a place for my parents was overwhelming for me, trying to go literally through the yellow pages and visiting each and every facility listed. A Place for Mom simplified the search and the care that they received was unparalleled. The staff members cared for each of them with the love and devotion they would have given their own parents. The blessing my parents and I received was immense and I will never forget it."

Cynthia A., Found Assisted Living in Southfield, MI

"I have to thank you once again for your support through this process. The biggest help was understanding the levels of care available and most appropriate for my parents. The facilities you identified helped us streamline the list of possible locations within the geographic area my parents were looking for."

Kathleen O., Found Assisted Living in Shiloh, IL

You were right on target. After following up on many suggestions and ideas "helpfully" supplied by various family members, I ended up right back at Emeritus.  Perfect choice. I cannot even begin to express what a blessing you have been in this process! You saved me weeks of phone calls and internet searches. I am so thankful for A Place for Mom.

"Mom moved into Atria and she loves it there so far. She thinks the staff is terrific, very conscientious, helpful and warm. I haven't heard her this happy in many, many years. I don't know if I would have even looked at this community if it weren't for your suggestions and help with the process, including the financial advice. I can't thank you enough."

Karen K., Found Assisted Living in Ardsley, NY
