Here's what some of my past clients and colleagues had to say about working with me:
Michelle’s bi-monthly #eldercarechat sessions on Twitter each month have become a top choice when I need to engage in real time conversations with other home care industry professionals. Michelle’s Seniors for Living forum is a comprehensive one-stop shopping destination to locate affordable senior housing options. Michelle is an instinctive home care industry professional with seasoned knowledge about current operational practices in the senior home care industry.
Michelle continues to impress me and the SeniorsForLiving.com team with her amazing expertise and passion for senior citizens and elder care issues. She has helped establish the SeniorsforLiving.com blog as a resource-filled hub of information about caregiving, senior housing, and elder care, as well as parlayed her sensitive, insightful dedication to her audience across various social networks. In her role as co-moderator and co-founder of #ElderCareChat on behalf of SeniorsForLiving.com, Michelle has helped build and inform a captive audience of caregivers, senior care organizations, and related associations thanks to bi-monthly Twitter sessions that often attracts between 40-75 participants. Having her on our team continues to help place SeniorsForLiving.com as the leader in providing senior housing and senior care information.
Michelle is a remarkable example of the new generation of writers. She has a way of immediately connecting to readers at a deep level and is versatile across mediums from blogging, magazine writing, social media, copywriting and more. Michelle is looked to as an established voice and expert in the elder care field and always goes above and beyond to provide information, sound advice, and a platform for caregivers and senior care professionals. Having the pleasure to get to know Michelle better through the #ElderCareChat group and other commitments over time, I have come to know she is a driven, motivated, and organized professional. I would highly recommend her work to others.
Michelle and I have talked twice now; each time she has provided many resources and ideas to help me with my mom who is 89 years old with Lewey Body disease. She is very friendly, caring and compassionate. I am trying to help my mom stay in her home on her limited resources. Our Hangout sessions have enoucraged me to keep trying and have home for my mom!
