Shout Out

"THANK YOU" Alice Kalso, Silver Age Housing & Care Referrals. Alice's help in finding an Assisted Living solution for my Father-In-Law was exceptional and life-changing. Alice worked with a very short time frame with very little notice and with a high level of discretion to find the perfect group home for our Dad. His needs were highly specific and Alice was instrumental in her research, energy around finding the best location, touring and advising us every step of the way.
