TESTIMONIAL
Long distance son, Oregon 11-21-16

“Initially we asked Laurel to help our
parents who were struggling to live in their own home with
limited local family support available. Our parents had
difficulty utilizing inhome caregiving effectively.
She quickly established a trusting relationship with
our parents who were initially resistant to her role.
Her support included attending medical appointments,
dealing with emergencies and improving the caregiving but
her role rapidly increased as new health issues and needs
arose. She developed and helped implement relocation
plans to appropriate senior communities.
Her in depth knowledge and experience with regards
to seniors and familiarity of local facilities and services
was invaluable. She seemed to always be a step ahead in what
was going to happen and needed to be done. She patiently
explained her thinking to both our parents and family
members. At all times she acted in our parents best interest
in a caring and compassionate manner in often very difficult
situations. I would highly recommend
her.”
