"MY HUSBAND & I learned about Parenting Your Parent  through an article in our local newspaper. At last we'd found someone who might be able to guide & support us in dealing with our elderly father who suffered from Dementia. 


Linda was able to establish a relationship with our father. He felt comfortable sharing his feelings about where he was in life. She became a sounding board for all of us. Her knowledge & understanding of the struggles individuals & their caregivers deal with was invaluable. She helped us to understand him which in turn helped us to provide him with the best care & living environment during his decline. Linda is more than someone just providing a service. She truly cares about her clients. I don't know how we would have done this on our own. We are extremely grateful to have found her. She truly did help us to Parent our Parent."
