Mike Kearney at Senior Care Authority did in 2 days what would have taken us weeks to accomplish. At a time filled with so much stress and confusion, it was such a relief to have someone take charge. We found the perfect placement for our loved one, I don’t think we would have without Mike’s help. Knowing what we were looking for in a facility, he came up with numerous places to tour. He accompanied us to each one and asked all the right questions for us. Words cannot express how grateful we are. We strongly recommend Senior Care Authority!

"Mike, Thank you for your message. Mom has become comfortable at the Village at Mill Landing. We are both so thankful that you were able to help get us there! For the last two months, I have been able to get her out to attend services at her church. After Mass, we go to lunch at Schallers or Bill Grays. She enjoys doing that and looks forward to those excursions. At Thanksgiving, I was able to take her to our son's house in Brighton for the afternoon. Thanks again for all that you did for us. We really appreciate you help."

“Hello Mike, In a time when there is high stress, and an inability to process all the work necessary to facilitate my mom‘s care from rehab to assisted living, an angel was sent to me to help organize and expedite the transition. I can’t say enough good things about Linda Peter. Without having a manual of how things work, she took the lead with contacting and scheduling assisted living tours, helped me ask the right questions, and also took the time to listen to my concerns. During that same week, when I was paralyzed with anxiety, regarding the next steps, she reached out to me to help process the long-term care claim. This, without a doubt, relieved a majority of my anxiety, as I am not familiar with policies and authorizations. Linda continues to reach out to me and advised me to contact her with any questions. Linda is definitely an asset to your organization, and I am so thankful for her calming approach, and the help provided to me.”
