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.

Alice S., Found Assisted Living in Austin, TX

Helpful Time Saving Advocates

"I was running around like a chicken without a head! If I hadn't contacted you when I did and had the chance to investigate a few places, I would have been quite lost. But fortunately, you were there. Hurrah for A Place for Mom!"

Dayle V., Found Assisted Living in Riverdale, NY

"A Place for Mom was a life saver! You did everything possible to make the search and transition easier for us. I found your service extremely helpful offering quick input and feedback."

Sharon S., Found Assisted Living in St. Helens, OR

"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

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.

Susan N., Found Assisted Living in Tucson, AZ

Peace of Mind & New Beginnings

"My mom settled in beautifully. I hesitated moving her for over a year because of all the warnings of 'transfer trauma' I had heard. She didn't miss a beat. Once there she became clearer and calmer, she did so much better!"

Michelle W., Found Assisted Living in Fairfield, OH

"I am the type of person who believes that once a decision is made you try never to look back. So the home we selected is just right. Everyday something comes up that reinforces the rightness of the selection. I love everyone who manages the home, and everyone who lives in the home. It is just a perfect choice for us."

Betty B., Found Assisted Living in Tempe, AZ

"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!"
