"Maureen was a tremendous help when we needed to place my 91 year old mom. During this challenging and emotional time, Maureen was able to compassionately and patiently guide us through the process. She was extremely knowledgeable of the various options, set up all the appointments and even attended all the visits with us asking pertinent questions we may not have thought to ask. She was an invaluable resource through this journey!"
