Client Testimonials

It was very comforting to my family to realize that even though we all were many miles away, Dad was being vigilantly looked after by you and your team. In addition to advocates, you truly did function as local family for my dad during his final months. While Dad was distressed at his decline, it’s comforting to know that he experienced many good times with you during his final months. We could not have done it without your help.

My parents were relocating from Florida back home to the Chicago area. It was very difficult for us (their sons) to learn all we needed to learn in order to find them a quality/safe/affordable new place to live. After many weeks of trying on our own, we were advised to contact Care Navigators. With Jean’s help, we were given extensive information about a number of places we were not able to find on our own. Within weeks we had three wonderful places from which to choose and our final selection was the perfect fit for my parents and those of us who will be helping them. We can’t thank Care Navigators enough!! P.S. The modest fee we paid for this help was easily offset by the savings we’ll experience not having made the wrong choice or a more expensive place than we needed.

This past fall, my 77 year old father had to undergo major surgery in another state. I was fortunate enough to have Jean Lamas as a friend and consultant as we aided my Dad and my Mom through the difficult process of pre-op, the surgery, the hospital stay and the post-op stage. Being informed and supported with the knowledge that Jean provided us made a huge difference to my Dad's care as well as the peace of mind for my Mom, siblings, and me. As we went through this journey, I had to shake my head a few times because everything that Jean told me to expect actually came to fruition. There were so many issues and instances, but I will cite just one. After the surgery, we were anxious to meet with a home care coordinator to set up in-home services after his release. Jean had warned me not to become frustrated if I could not meet right away with the appropriate person- they are very busy- and to be calm but persistent until I was able to meet and help setup after care for my Dad. Had I not known this, I would have become more frustrated than I even was, because I was prepared for that part of the process. Jean is a wealth of information re: coverage with insurance and Medicare. I truly believe that consulting with her helped my family and me on many levels at this challenging time in our lives. Thanks Jean!
