“My gratitude to Proactive Seniors is overwhelming. We contacted them to help us organize and direct us in the planning of our parents next stage in life. Proactive Seniors took the guess work, running around and the fear of what we needed to do to get the best possible living arrangement for our mom and dad. Proactive Seniors in depth interview with my parents and our family is what helped us know that they knew what we needed and that we were meeting our parents hopes and desires. The binder Kathy compiled with all the information and choices we had was extensive. We have been able to refer to the binder as an education and reference tool to make the best decision possible for our family and know we are respecting our parents wishes because the recommendations are tailored to our parents needs and desires. I highly recommend Proactive Seniors to anyone with aging parents or to any seniors because it makes a very difficult, stressful and overwhelming task much easier and way less scary”

“Kathy took the stress of finding a place for my father away. She met with us as a family in the hospital and spent time getting to know my Dad and our requirements. Then she got back to us within days with a list of places. She is compassionate and very knowledgeable. I do not hesitate to recommend Kathy as she provided excellent and great value.”

“Kathy was amazing.  She gave us the lay of the land and was able to provide research to support her recommendations. Instead of my parents hearing about retirement living from just me, they were able to hear it from someone who specializes in this.  Plus, working with Kathy took a TON of legwork out of it for me.   With over 50 facilities in the city, it would have taken me months to sort through it.  With Kathy’s help, the journey was not only painless, but even somewhat pleasant!  Thanks Kathy for all your help!”

“I’m so grateful to have found Proactive Seniors. Kathy Mendham is helping our family navigate the rough waters of the last years of my mother’s life. Kathy is a wealth of information, experience, ideas and resources. She was very thorough and focused when she took down the details of our family history and situation. However, I did not feel like I was being “processed” because Kathy’s warmth, intelligence and caring registered as sound support. She is passionate about helping seniors and their families to find the best way to make the latter years easier and richer for both the elderly person and their caregivers. Without reservation I highly recommend Kathy and Proactive Seniors.”
