Client Testimonials

I've seen other people with elderly parents try to manage things without help from a care coordinator. They end up taking on a lot of burden themselves. Their visits home turn into caregiving work sessions. Doctors' appointments. Home repairs. Shopping. Cooking. Constant problem-solving. If I didn't have Mary Jo, that's what would happen to me and my siblings. We would come to visit and end up spending all our time taking care of things for Dad. Don't get me wrong, those things are important. But if Mary Jo can oversee the people who are taking care of these things, I get to spend my precious moments with my dad as his son, rather than a caregiver. That's worth a lot to me.

Mary Jo, meeting you was a God send. You very graciously listened to me ramble on about my husband's illness. Then you took the time to send me the year long devotional by Billy Graham. What an incredible gift! I so appreciate your patience and thoughtfulness. You are an amazing person I am blessed God put in my life's journey. Sincere Thankfulness.
