A Note From Melinda

"Trying to find the best care for your loved one can be overwhelming, intimidating and very stressful. My experience with my own family has given me the ability to be empathetic to what others are going through. As a Senior Living Advisor with A Place for Mom, I am here to reduce that stress and educate families on the choices available to them. I will stay on the journey with you until you have found the best possible match. It would be my pleasure to assist you in this difficult process. Nothing feels better than to hear from a family that their loved one is happy, doing well and the family now has peace of mind that they have the right care."

Reviews and Testimonials

"I am writing to tell you that Melinda Cook has been a life-saver for our family in the process of locating the perfect fit for my dad in assisted living care.
I am so grateful for all the time Melinda gave us researching and setting up appointments for visits and just talking through the difficult process with us! She was so easy to talk with and so helpful in gathering the important information that we needed. I so appreciate her being so available and following up with us after the process began.
Melinda is truly a great asset to the organization, A Place for Mom! My family and I are all so thankful for all she did to help us!"
