"Thank You' does not seem adequate for all of the help that you gave us during this difficult time. Your understanding of who our mother was as a person, as well as her medical needs was remarkable. Your willingness to go the extra step and take her to visit the various places was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. We truly appreciate all that you did for us."
"Arnie Cowan's service is a godsend for people with aging parents in South Florida who need help in placing them in facilities that are appropriate to their changing needs and budgets. He knows every eldercare facility in great detail: their backgrounds, their management styles, the changing mix and quality of their services, the staff people, and their costs and benefits. He makes searching for an appropriate placement, which can be a painful crisis in the lives of seniors and their family members, almost pleasureable. With long experience in the field of programs for the elderly, he understands their anxieties, needs, wants, and constraints, and he has a very calming and professional manner that puts the elderly at their ease especially when he interviews them to assess their needs and then takes them and their family members from one place to another and helps them ask the right questions of the management. And all of this outstanding consumer-oriented service is free to the family...I can't say enough about how valuable his service was to us and how pleased we are with the results...an excellent program of care that is affordable and sustainable."
"We had put my mother into an assisted living facility in Boynton Beach 6 months before and, unfortunately, although the facility looked lovely, the care was frighteningly lax, at best. It became clear she needed to be moved. We live in California and finding another living arrangement for her became a daunting task. How does one screen from a distance or, alternatively, how can you evaluate a potential home in a day of visiting? We had done that before and were terribly naive in believing what we were told and what we saw in a short visit. At the prospect of this daunting task ahead, Susan Jacobs from Sunshine Senior Placement appeared in our lives through a connection at Jewish Family Services. In our conversations with Susan, she came across as sincere, knowledgeable and caring. She affirmed the dysfunction and deterioration at our original choice and had was given clear ideas about alternatives. Susan drove my mother to three places and honored her attraction to and choice of one of the communities. I moved my mother into the new place last week and it was filled with competent staff, proven systems to address problems, and kind, loving professionals who truly enjoyed their work. The community is attractive and clean. My mother is happy and relieved to be in a caring place. Living 3000 miles away from your parent is challenging and at times, filled with anxiety. We could not have moved my mother into such a wonderful place without the professional, knowledgeable and compassionate support of Susan Jacobs and Sunshine Senior Placement. I highly recommend this service and Susan Jacobs for providing invaluable support with a very complex and difficult task."
"I began my search for placement for my 93 y.o. mother in Florida referred to Nancy Aronson from Sunshine Senior Placement. We needed a place that provided high care and was financially affordable. Nancy brought us to Everlasting Care, a residential style Assisted Living in WPB. The owner, Duvenson and his staff were loving, compassionate and responsive to my moms needs. The home was neat as a pin and warm and friendly. My mother lived her life alone as long as she could but it was time to make this necessary transition and we are indebted to Nancy and Duvenson for making it work."
