Below are a few testimonials and comments from our survey's we distribute at our presentations:

“Thank you Jo-Ann for a great presentation yesterday. Although the majority of my clients are low income, the tips given were well received and I was impressed by the professionalism of the presenters. The VA benefit information is important for my folks to know about as if they need or want to move on to an assisted living community, it could make the difference on whether or not they could afford it. I have put all the information collected yesterday in my resource booklet that can be accessed by residents or families. Look forward to seeing you in March!”

~ Ann Sico, Service Coordinator, AHEPA Housing Management Company
