"I no longer worry about my mother living on her own, since hiring an Advocate and Care Manager.  I know she is getting the attention I want her to have.  They communicate with me regularly so I can keep abreast of any changes.  Now I have a quality visit with my mother every few months instead of a quick, crisis filled visit with her monthly."
