"I got to know Harold when my mother became unable to care for herself after the death of my father.  Harold, was a terrific listener as I described her situation. It became very clear to me that Harold was extremely knowledgeable about Adult Living options and was the right person to guide us through this process.  He was patient and compassionate and always available whenever we needed him. With Harold’s help, we found the right community for mom and she is extremely happy there.

I would highly recommend Harold to anyone needing the kind of help that he specializes in."

“Harold assisted my brother and I with the grueling task of finding an assisted living location for my mom. He was so caring and understanding of our financial issues and my mom’s struggles of leaving her home that she lived in for over 40 years. He did research to make sure that the assisted living communities not only met our financial needs but also my mom’s needs which even included being able to retain her dog.”

“Getting your loved ones settled in an assisted living residence can be a trying experience. Having a professional that guided us through the process made all the difference in the world. Harold answered every question that arose and even anticipated our questions and concerns. He was professional and compassionate.”
