Testimonials

Dear Anne,
I just wanted to drop you a note saying how wonderful it’s been having Suzanne and Courtenay involved in the care of my wife. Due to their caring, positive, support and commitment to care we have seen a dramatic rise in Lisa’s abilities and recovery. Their commitment to go above and beyond is a refreshing change from care we’ve had in the past. We thank you and your team for pairing up such great people to our needs.

Best Regards,
Kelly

My two sisters and I continue to be in awe of the way that Anne Duggan keeps things goings with such wisdom and efficiency. We live almost a thousand kilometers from our aunt who has no other living relatives and has moderate dementia. You can imagine the challenges that presents! For all these years, Anne has kept things “together” and continues to support not only our aunt, but us as well because we know from such contacts that we are able to manage, that all is proceeding so very well !!! Anne has helped us through some very challenging circumstances. Her assistants are chosen very wisely and do an outstanding job! Thanks to Chris as well. We know what you are accomplishing!
Anne, Beth and Vicki

 

Hello Anne,  Our mother died on February 10. She was 92.  It is surprising to be reminded that it was just last June, eight months ago, that we moved her from assisted living in Tsawwassen to Qualicum Beach. Thank you for your help in this transition.

I have just reviewed the advice you wrote for my sister last June, when she was considering moving our mum into her own home in Qualicum Beach.   I want to thank you for the gentle and constructive advice, skillfully offered at that time, and subsequently, when we determined that Qualicum Manor was the place mum needed to be.  It was so very valuable to have an advocate ready to listen with a thorough and informed  understanding of the opportunities presented.  We were very pleased with the care mum received at Qualicum Manor.  We felt confident that she was comfortable, safe and well looked after.

Your service is invaluable and I would recommend Elder Life Advocacy to other families in our position without hesitation.  Thank you for your help.

Sincerely, Anne R.  – Victoria

 

Anne. I want you to have this letter of recommendation from me, my wife and my brother and sister. We want to thank you for all you have done for our mother. You have accomplished a great deal in terms of guiding us trough unfamiliar territory, in a professional, timely, sincere, caring way.

It has been quite a journey over the last few months, but you made it all go as smooth as reasonably possible. You were great helping us to understand what our mother was going through and how to take each step. Your familiarity with the system, doctors and home care professionals was a huge help and I can’t imagine the time it would have taken us without you.

My mother was cared for not only with a high level of expertise by you, but as importantly, you befriended her, gained her trust and made her life, so much better. Moreover, your fees were reasonable and clearly explained ahead of time.

It is hard to put into words the intricacies of what you do, so I would be more than happy to talk or email with any potential customer you may have. Any family looking for home care and guidance with their parents would be fortunate to have you employed.

Thank you, so very much.

I was desperate to get back to Parksville after a year’s failed attempt to live in a facility in Victoria. Even though I am 86 and living on a the supplement; I slipped through the cracks of the system. The arthritis in my spine does not qualify me for VIHA assessment; and this assessment is essential for placement in subsidized housing that includes meals.

When I heard that Anne had formed a company to advocate for people like me, I asked for her help. She was positive and supportive. She asked lots of questions. I was reassured, and encouraged that she would find somewhere for me to live where I would be secure and well cared for – and on budget.

Within a few weeks, I had moved into a well-established complex that suits me very well.

Thank you Anne!
