I was impressed with JoAnne's abilities to come into patients home asses situation and see the needs of former patient of mine with dementia. JoAnne was able to put family members worries to rest by getting caregivers situated into her home, going to doctors with client, hiring maintenance people to alter home when other agencies couldn't help with complexities of her situation. We are very grateful for her help.

JoAnne Roth has been a godsend to my sister who has many special needs. She is attentive, imaginative, compassionate, and efficient with her time. Her patience with my sometimes very challenging mentally ill sister continues to amaze me. We have hired several caretakers, organizers and house cleaners for her over the years. They drifted away fairly quickly. JoAnne stuck around. She communicates regularly with our family, keeping us well-informed. I simply don't know what we would do without her.

We are so grateful that we had JoAnne, supporting our mom when we weren’t able to be there with her. She has always been there when we needed her the most. She kept us informed daily of mom’s changes and improvements and had all things in place by the time mom returned home from the hospital.”
I want to acknowledge you, Jo Anne-for all your great ideas. I so appreciate all the things you are doing to help my dad in the LONG run. And the gentle, patient teaching and guidance you are giving him.
