Dana – Overwhelmed & 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.

Mary K., Found Assisted Living in Seattle, WA

"Unlike other moves with our mother (who is in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease) mom is not displaying her usual upset at having moved. Rather, she has settled in quite nicely. I want to thank you for finding this nice facility. We would have never found it on our own."

Mary Kay O., Found Alzheimer’s Memory Care in Pewaukee, WI

"You were terrific. You gave me good suggestions and listened to my feedback. You managed to be both supportive and to nudge me when I was tiring in the search, or when I didn't follow up on something."

Celia W., Found Assisted Living in Portland, OR

Peace of Mind & New Beginnings

"My mom has adjusted so well. She tells my brother and sister-in-law how much she loves it and how nice everyone is. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your assistance in helping me place her there. I'm so thankful for A Place for Mom."

Donna R., Found Assisted Living in Memphis, TN

"My mother is relatively stress-free now and feels like a new life has started for her. The staff is amazing, fun and caring. The food is excellent and the daily activities and excursions are well planned and executed. She can still drive to the supermarket nearby but takes advantage of the van to go to doctor appointments."

Denise T., Found Assisted Living in Cardiff, CA

"The place we picked is amazing; the people who take care of her are wonderful. I sleep better at night knowing how well she is being taken care of and she is very happy. Thank you so much for your service."
