About me

I grew up on a farm and loved it.  I now live in town and love assisting people.  I especially enjoy Elder Care issues.  I have always done some work in this field.  I now do this exclusively.  I had to go through this when my Grandmother needed nursing home.  It was a difficult porcess to say the least.  


I was asked by the Probate Judge to assist with an elderly couple who had no family and the wife needed nursing home care.  The husband was a WWII Veteran which made it all the more important that he be treated well.  I studied the rules, bought books and attended classes to be able to assist them.  It worked out favorably. 


Shortly after that I was contacted about another similar situation. Thanks to continued personal referral from clients and their families I am able to devote my practice to assiting the Elderly and Veterans.
