Liz has been an instrumental partner in 8 years of long-distance caregiving for my mother. She has seen us through multiple living situations — independent living in mom’s long-time house, assisted living, rehab hospital, skilled nursing — and has always been there to support my mother and her needs. I’ve relied on her sound advice in so many different situations and can’t imagine how my mother would have been able to stay in Florida as she wanted without Liz.
