   " Thanks Kathleen for getting me started with locating my parents' legal 

    directives—living will and medical power of attorney and assisting me with 

    organizing their medical and financial records. Your referral to an elder law

    attorney was great! It has helped us with long term care planning to figure out

    how we will pay for costs if or when they can no longer stay at home."— Maria B.

  " My mother is in the early stages of dementia and lives with me. Kathleen helped me to

      understand how to keep her safe and how to address difficult behaviors at home.

      She also helped me to find the right kind of support so that I could take better care of 

      myself."— Joan N.
