Client Praise

She is a “doer” and a “listener."
"Kathy Freda is a compassionate, responsive care manager. She is a “doer” and a “listener.” Kathy is my go-to person in terms of resources for clients from the best assisted living communities to skilled nursing to home care, doctors, therapists, lawyers, pharmacies, the list goes on and on. I trust Kathy’s judgment and recommendations. She always includes the entire team in her work whether it is a client’s family members, other professionals, and of course, the client, to provide the best care for each individual client. Her plan of care is unique to each client. Plus, Kathy’s care plans are fluid as the client’s situation changes. I feel very comfortable reaching out to Kathy if one of my client’s is having issues in terms of health, socialization and safety. I know she will address the problems and help the client get back on track. Without hesitation, I would hire Kathy to help with my parents’ care."

Kathy worked hard for us.
"Eighteen months ago, my husband and I were facing a serious dilemma. We were overseeing the affairs of an older, disabled relative who could no longer afford her current living situation. She was stubborn about facing this situation and did not want to move. Kathy spoke with our relative multiple times and listened to what was important to her. She gained her trust which was invaluable. Kathy explored numerous options and ended up finding a wonderful and affordable place that our relative was willing to relocate to. Kathy worked hard for us. She listened to both sides and was able to resolve this issue before it escalated. She is kind and compassionate and really understands what people are going through in elder care situations. We can recommend her with no reservations. Please consider her for your elder care needs."
