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.

Compassionate & Knowledgeable Advisors

"I can't say thank you enough for helping me find a place for my parents. Thank you for being there to help answer questions and give advice to handle a very difficult decision and situation. It was nice to have someone to lean on and not feel so alone in the process. My parents are now in a safe place and are well taken care of. It is a relief for me to know that. Thank you again for everything."

Alice S., Found Assisted Living in Austin, TX

"Your service to the community is invaluable and I sincerely appreciate all you have done."

Audrey R., Found Assisted Living in Jasper, GA

"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

Helpful Time Saving Advocates

"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

"This move could not have happen as quickly and smoothly without your help and guidance. I felt overwhelmed and didn't know where to even begin the search for A Place for Mom. You and your organization made it easy to start down a road that is scary and intimidating. Thank you so much!"

Julie G., Found Assisted Living in Abington, PA

"What a great service your company provided to us at such a difficult time. Thank you for providing us with all the different options to investigate. Knowing that your company has done the screening first saved us time and heartache. We are looking forward to mom thriving in her new living situation and are hopeful for her future."

Jeanne B., Found Assisted Living in San Diego, 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

Peace of Mind & New Beginnings

"Getting started is the most important step that anyone has to take in making decisions for any kind of care for a parent or a child, and that is what A Place For Mom is, "the first step"."

Kay S., Found Assisted Living in Pensacola, FL

"My mother called me today to tell me, that at age 94, she is in love for the first time in her life. She loves the retirement community, has friends now, has activities, and she has blossomed. I was so sure she was headed for a dementia unit and suddenly, she is this new person. I couldn't have done any of this without your help and support every step of the way. You have been amazingly helpful and supportive."

Caroline L., Found Assisted Living in Boston, MA

"I agonized over placing my mom in an assisted living facility; in fact, I fought the whole idea of it until I had no other choice. My emotions were almost a hindrance to me to make the best decision for my mom as I wanted more than anything to protect her but the situation was out of my control. We moved my mom in about a month ago and she went from being sad and depressed to open and happy once again. She is making friends and participating in all the activities and she even loves the food! We all love you at A Place for Mom!"
