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!
