IMG_7947-687“After several years of living alone following the death of my mother, it came time for my aging father to relocate to a retirement facility due to failing health and the need for daily support. At this time I had a demanding career and many personal responsibilities and commitments. Even with my career training in long term care planning and eldercare, the process was difficult and sometimes overwhelming. My circle of friends were dealing with similar situations and looking for advice and assistance in transitioning their parents. It quickly became evident that there was a need for a service that could provide the knowledge, compassion and empathy to help others through such difficult times. My corporate skills in organizing, planning, executing and problem solving were invaluable. I could have used someone like me to handle all the details but there was no one available. Having gone through the process of moving my father I knew how frightening and difficult relocating a loved one could be. I wanted to “be there” and share my experience and knowledge in order to relieve the stress and worry for others who were dealing with such a transition and so Elite Transitions was born.”
