“We were relatively uninformed about Memory Care communities, and our mother’s dementia was aggressive. Sylvia was the first person we met, and she guided us through the entire process – applying, moving, and making sure my mother was comfortable. We couldn’t be more grateful to Sylvia for her compassion, professionalism, and warmhearted approach to caregiving. We recommend Sylvia as your expert senior living consultant without hesitation.” 

– Joel S., Adult Child of Charter Memory Care resident
