Susan was incredible! She was patient, kind and listened to all of my concerns as we looked for a place for my parents. She not only wanted to know about my parents health status but also about their interests, personalities and what was most important to them. Her knowledge and experience is invaluable. We found a place easily and are all so excited for this next chapter to start. I will never be able to adequately express my appreciation. She has a special place in my heart! Thanks Susan!
My siblings and I had a great experience with SLS. Our contact there, Ronda Parmacek, was wonderful to work with and her many years of experience in this field was much appreciated. We are all very happy with the decision my parents made in their next place to live.
Ronda has tremendous knowledge of local facilities and was able to give us pros and cons of each. She had the facilities contact us and set up tours. She checked in with us on a regular basis. I strongly recommend her services.
Susan is kind, caring, and very experienced in finding the most appropriate placement for a loved one. She helped our family find placement for my father who, after a recent illness, required a higher level of care. Her knowledge is invaluable as she only steered us to the nicest, but yet, most affordable facilities. I would highly recommend her services.
Susan helped find a memory care home that fit my mom's needs far better than the home she was in. We were in a bit of a rush and Susan was on it, calling other homes, arranging visits, constantly connecting with me until we found the perfect spot. It was such a relief to me that she was placed exactly where she needed to be. Susan is incredibly kind, genuine and cares deeply for her work. Wonderful company to work with.
Ronda was so helpful in finding an assisted living space that was a good fit for both my parents. Their needs were very different and Ronda’s knowledge of the various facilities was instrumental in helping us find a place able to provide individualized care for mom and dad and allow them to stay together.
My mother has dementia and the social worker from her neurologist referred me to Senior Living Specialist where I met Susan. During our first conversation I felt the compassion, commitment and dedication she had for the senior community. Susan patiently listened to my moms story and shared insights about being a care-taker, validating my spirit. After our conversation she went right to work. She spent hours going through her vast repertoire of resources to find a Senior Community that best fit my mother's specific needs. She found a wonderful place for mom, but Susan's help didn't stop there. She worked with the facility's director to negotiate fee to fit mom's financial situation. Susan and her team are outstanding. I am so grateful/blessed to have them as a part of our support team.
Placing a parent into an assisted living facility is one of the most difficult things someone can do. Fortunately, my family had Ronda to help navigate this very difficult task. Ronda was knowledgeable, resourceful, patient, kind, and very available to help us every step of the way. I’m grateful my father-in-law is in a safe community where he has adjusted well and is comfortable. And, we are grateful that he is safe. I recommend Rhonda to anyone who finds themselves in this situation.
Ronda is the BEST! She helped me move my 89 year old mother from Ft. Lauderdale to Chicago in less than 3 months. I told her what my mom was looking for and she nailed it on the FIRST community she recommended. She helped me navigate through my first experience of finding independent living and was by my side throughout the entire process. She treated MY mother as if she was HER mother. THANK YOU:)
There is not enough time or space in the world to express my and my sisters appreciation for Susan, Lorri and SLS. We had already braved the world of finding a place for our mom on our own the first time and to say the least had a very difficult experience. Once we knew we needed to start the search to move mom again we found Susan who immediately dropped everything to come to our rescue.. She is a true professional and expert in the field and exactly the kind, caring voice and senior/family advocate we needed at that time. Mom is in a MUCH better place now with a ton of support and we can all rest much easier now. I would highly recommend engaging them for help!! Thanks again for everything Susan, you truly have made a difference in our lives.
Tess was very helpful during a challenging situation with arranging care for our loved one. Tess spent many hours researching options and connecting our family with reputable, caring service providers. Highly recommend.
I can’t speak highly enough of Tess Quinn! She was absolutely amazing to work with and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Her response time to any call, email or text was impeccable. Don’t hesitate to reach out to her for any assistance you may need with a loved one. Thank you again, Tess!
