What People Are Saying

Good Morning! Having an aging / ailing parent can certainly be challenging, scary and overwhelming. From my first conversation with Vicki Crooks she made me feel at ease and made the process of obtaining financing for a very specific need – simple. Vicki made me aware of the Senior Veterans Council and we are in the process of applying for assistance. As the Power of Attorney for my Mom there have been countless new issues to conquer without any “playbook” to follow. So I appreciate the assistance Elderlife – specifically Vicki has provided me and my wife. Thank you!
