Reviews and Testimonials

"I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts. You were very helpful to me and my family during a very stressful and difficult time. It was such a help to have someone provide information and guidance to us when we literally has no idea where to begin in our efforts to help our mother. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you and a Place for Mom for being there for us."

"We paid a lawyer thousands who did not do for us in 6 months what you did for us in one phone call for free! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

- Lisa A.

"So many things have happened since we spoke. I contacted the Sunrise Community, and my family and I have since done the tour and have decided to move forward with my father’s transfer to the East Brunswick location. The staff and facility are wonderful and are making this entire process very easy. Even the nursing home where he currently resides was thrilled with our choice to move him to Sunrise (as opposed to bringing him home). My father should be settled in his new home by the end of this week.

I want you to know that it was my discussion with you that was the catalyst for it all. Your objective advice and insight were critical in our decision-making process. I can’t tell you how many times I said to my family, “Well, Donna said …”. My only regret is that I didn’t call you sooner. You need to know that you have made one family very happy and have lifted the weight of the world from our shoulders. Thank you for your kind and caring advice."
