Melia, past client

“Prior to going through the Family Care Planning process, I felt stuck and anxious about the situation my father was in. There was a pervading sense of "What are we going to do about dad?” The process helped me -- and I believe others -- actually think more fully about their place in the family and what they could do to help. We are now implementing our plan."

“What an invaluable service you provide families who are struggling with how to help their senior loved ones in their later years. With your guidance and genuine care, our family has a cohesive plan, and action steps- a very well laid out roadmap if you will, to help navigate the next stage of my father-in-law's life. The sense of relief and empowerment you've instilled is immeasurable.”

Michael, past client

"While everyone clearly cared about one another, nobody seemed to have the tools available to clearly communicate - and the wishes of the person being cared for kept getting missed due to the focus on logistics. This process was incredibly helpful - having outside facilitation got the entire family on track, talking about the things that mattered, and decisions that had been deferred for years were made within hours with buy-in from everyone involved.”
