Because of Aging Advisors NC, we were able to make an informed, compassionate decision under true crisis. We will not forget Liisa’s caring diligence during stressful times. - P. Barbour
Liisa’s report was so tailored to our family’s specific needs, financial, geographic and health-wise, as well as individual desires. She enabled us to compare Continuing Care Retirement Communities apples-to-apples, revealing a difference in costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of our anticipated stay. In fact, there was a difference of over $600,000 in cost between the options we were most interested in. It’s an invaluable service. – J. Hearn
After another fall, I knew I had to move mom from independent to assisted fast. Liisa made it so much easier by quickly providing a report which compared three great options that met her needs with immediate availability. - R. Landers
Liisa enabled us to strategize ways to reduce private agency care for our dad, while also keeping him safe, saving our family $65,000/year. -MH

Mom’s dementia took a sudden downturn. She was living with me, but I needed to keep working. Liisa identified two affordable options and walked me through what we needed to do to get Mom there. - K. Roche
I was in search of an assisted living facility for my 91-year-old mother, and I did not know where to begin or how I would have any confidence in my findings.
