Care Management Services

Words of thanks from a Power of Attorney:

Audrey, Lori and Tom,

Thank you so much for all of your help over the years with Gwen. She was a wonderful person and your services made the last few years of her life as good as they possibly could be. Lori, Tom and his team, were all a God send. Lori’s understanding and attention to detail allowed us to provide Gwen with the very best care and comfort possible. Tom’s consistent compassion and his staff’s dedication and care for Gwen was unmatched to any care facility that we could have ever found. It was always Gwen’s wish to pass away at home quietly, which is exactly what she did. I cannot thank all of you enough.

Best regards,
Nathalie
