“Just a quick note of appreciation for the education, time and personal assistance you provided my parents and myself in placing them in their new home at Brookdale.  They have now been on property for six weeks and have adapted well. I believe that is due to the time and effort you provided so that the “match” was right. Between caring for them, looking for a new home and executing on my day job- it was very tasking and your team certainly made it manageable. Again, thank you!”
