Nancy was so compassionate

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it has been having Nancy help us find a place for my Mom who has dementia. Nancy was so incredible and helpful especially at a time when we were, as can be imagined, having one of the most difficult family events ever. Nancy was so compassionate more »

Thank you so much

Hi Nancy, I want to thank you on behalf of my brothers and I for helping us find a place for our mother. I was at a loss as to how to go about things until I got hold of you. I’m sure we would still be looking had it not been for your help. more »

My cousin is very happy now

Thank you for all that you did for my cousin… She may have been reluctant at first, but she is very happy now (and much safer). You played an important part in this transition.

Positive spin on the transition.

Good care of my Dad

I can’t thank you enough for recommending the house my Dad is living in. Joyce and Sandy are great, along with the other gals. They take such good care of my Dad and I think he really is enjoying living there. It has been a great move for him.

Wonderful to work with

Hi Nancy! This is a hello and thank-you from Duane B’s family. You miraculously found him an assisted living place right after Christmas 2011. He was 96 at the time and in a “spend down” period. You found him a wonderful place in Kirkland. Anyway, I was trying to find something else in my e-mails more »
