“My husband and I were referred to Keystone by another provider of services for senior citizens who told us Keystone had a good reputation. We needed help in relation to my mother, whose dementia condition caused us to move her into our home because we worried about her living independently.
Over time, her living with us became a very difficult and unmanageable situation. Because my mother is otherwise healthy and active, we didn’t want to put her in a nursing home, and we were concerned about being able to afford her care. But my husband and I knew that we at least needed to be able to take a break and go on a vacation without her. Keystone arranged for us to get a “respite care” placement at a local secured facility for dementia patients.
When we returned from our two week vacation, Keystone encouraged us to leave my mother for a little more time to see if she would adjust, since they convinced us that early dementia placements often have better success. Sure enough, my mother adjusted well and remains there to this day, really quite comfortable and accepting of her new living environment.
Keystone staff has invested much time with us to make sure that all of her legal documents are in place; they helped us to create an asset protection trust and strategy to make sure that we will not only have enough money to take care of my mother but also that she will probably be able to leave some behind. Thank you Keystone!”
