    “Kristi Kidd did an amazing job helping me with my Mom recently after she left rehab in Frederick. She is a caring person who has an interest in all her clients and only wants the best for them. If you need senior living advice, from touring and placing your loved ones in a assisted living facility to help for them in their home, she is your advisor. I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done to help my Mom and I through this transition.”

    “Kriste was a great help to me when trying to find an assisted living facility with specialized memory care for my mother who has alzheimers. With so many options, places and services to consider, I was feeling overwhelmed and second guessing myself about the right decision to make. Kriste came to my aid and her familiarity with all of the local facilities and experience with placing loved ones in assisted living really gave me peace of mind that I was finding a good place and a good fit for my mother.”

    “Kriste Kidd has been such a tremendous help this month here in the Frederick/Hagerstown area! I flew in from out of state on days notice that my great-aunt was in rehab and needed help. I had absolutely no idea how to care for my senior aunt or what to do or where to go. Social workers, Michael and Robyn at Northampton Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation called me to tell me what the possible next steps were. They recommended Kriste to me and she contacted me. She later explained to me that she likes to reach out to clients as in those moments, our minds are racing with a million things on a to-do list, that's one less thing for us to worry about. I thought that was great and it made a great first impression! She helped me sort out medical forms and of course was the biggest help in finding an independent living community that was a great fit for my aunt's budget, needs and likes. She took out all the research I would have had to do (that I had no idea how to do or what to look for) and gave me 4 options to look at, with more on deck if none of them were suitable. She arranged for tours and meetings within a matter of days as we needed to transition from rehab to a community quickly due to Medicare running out at the rehab center and she was having to pay out of pocket (private pay). She gave me recommendations for a good and trustworthy lawyer, Law Office of Lena A. Clark for a Power of Attorney and more. She also recommended a company that helps with moving furniture and items from home to a community, Stress Free Solutions, experienced with many situations like this in the area. She kept in communication with the social worker often and with myself, no matter the time of day or holiday (4th of July). She knows Senior community living very well and has been to every community that she recommends or takes clients to see. She has worked in this business for many years and has so much education and knowledge about Senior communities, whether it is assisted living or independent living or memory care/dementia communities. I have never had to do anything like this before as my own parents are still in their late 50s and working and living life on their own just fine, yet they themselves are learning this process with my grandparents (she also gave me a contact for Oasis in San Antonio, Texas to help them out if they need it and I highly recommended it to them). I have never had to work with this much legal or medical paperwork, especially Medicare. She helped me figure out what to do and what questions to ask and to whom. She also helped me with discussing this with my aunt as this was a challenging and stressful time for her. On my flight to Frederick, MD I was incredibly stressed out not knowing what I was going to do. I wasn't sleeping the first few nights, she completely cut my stress level in half the moment we started to work together. She was there at the community waiting for my aunt to welcome her with a sign, balloons and a gift bag of things my aunt enjoyed. It was such a nice touch! She was incredibly personable and realistic and professional. She gave me the facts up front, there was not sugar coating things, which is what I wanted, to be sure of all the facts. She continues to be available to me if I need anything or have any questions. We are settling in within the week at Edenton Retirement Community, currently staying at their guest house thanks to the arrangements Kriste made with Lauren here. Gracias Kriste Kidd for everything, I will never forget it!”

    “I was overwhelmed in making the decision for an assisted living facility for my 81 year old mother. Kriste was patient and kind and provided me information and guidance to make the best decision for my mom. Kriste was with me every step of the way. Now i can relax knowing she is in a good place.”

    “I highly recommend Kriste Kidd!! She has helped me plow through what seemed an impossible situation. I am the sole caregiver to my elderly mother and had just found out that I need open heart surgery. I had only limited resources to get my mother into an assisted living while I recover from surgery. Kriste helped me find resources as well as finding a good home for my mother. She helped me too by just being a kind, caring person during the working out of this process. I've been more than satisfied with Kriste's help and expertise!!”

    “I truly don't know where my mother would be living right now if it wasn't for Kriste. I told her and truly meant it when I said that she was a God send. My mother was receiving rehab in a local nursing home and had reached a plateau in physical therapy. As a result of this, therapy was discharging her. I learned that once therapy discharges a patient Medicare coverage also ceases. Her therapists were not recommending that she go home due to safety concerns. This is where I encountered significant problems. I was told that my mother was too high functioning to go into their long-term nursing home, she met criteria for skilled nursing and could not remain in rehab, and she didn't meet criteria for their Assisted Living because she had a stage 3 wound on her heel. I received minimal help from the social worker of the nursing home. She basically told me that there was nothing she could do, and my mother would have to return home against the therapists' recommendations despite the fact that a home assessment was never completed. The social worker emailed me a list of alternative places in the community and it became my job to try to find an alternative placement for my mother. From making calls I was referred to various people. One of those persons was Kriste Kidd. Kriste offered to meet with my mother and I that evening at the nursing home because the next day my mother would be private pay, which is $405.00 a day just for the bed. After Kriste talked with my mother and I, and got a good understanding of her needs, she connected my mother to an assisted living in the community. From Kriste's knowledge, experience, and connection with community resources, she helped to bring me piece of mind that night. A nurse from the assisted living facility was going to assess my mother the next day, and because of Kriste talking with the administrator, it was almost certain that she would be accepted. Kriste stayed with me for a couple of hours that night just talking with me and giving me assurance. The great thing about the assisted living facility is that it was half the cost of the nursing home's assisted living, and they were offering a special of 50% off their regular price for three months. I am so grateful for Kriste and all of her hard work and dedication in helping families, especially during a crisis. My mother was admitted to the assisted living the next day. Kriste visited my mother and sent me a picture of the two of them together. Kriste was a strong advocate, and performed duties that the social worker should have done. More nursing homes, hospitals, and private and government agencies should utilize Kriste's services more often. Kriste continues to keep in touch with me and assists me with various needs related to my mother. Again, I am so thankful for Kriste and she truly was a God send in a time of great need!”

    “Witnessing a parent(s) decline physically, socially, and mentally is something that most of society must eventually endure. As children, our mortality is seldom considered until it is staring you in the face. Very few are prepared for this transition as it is never a good time for our parents to lean on their children for help. Some children evolve and become the caregiver. This is a task that requires not only a high level of commitment, but also a high level of networking to find advice and help with obtaining needed resources. Doing this alone will be something that very few will be able to accomplish. And, at some point, the best thought out plan and resources exhaust themselves and another transition is needed, such as moving to an assisted living community. Where is the optimal place for your parent that will give them the quality of life that they deserve? Getting involved with a professional in the field of senior care will be the best decision that you will make in the search for helping your parent(s). Not only will they give you the personal attention that you need, they will empower you with all the right questions to ask and things to look for when searching for an assisted living community. In doing so, you can make an informed decision of choosing the right place to live for your loved one. My experience with Kriste Kidd at Oasis Senior Advisors, was just that. It was personable, informative, and empowering. Most importantly, Kriste took the time to listen to what was needed with my family and not what was just out there. Kriste customized a search based on my family’s needs and made sure that each avenue explored was catered to our requests. Her approach is one that is tailored to meet your needs. She is completely hands on with all aspects of the search including all inquiries, scheduling tour appointments, accompanying on tours and follow-ups that occur throughout the process of finding the right assisted living. Her knowledge of the industry truly is a resource that you should not do without when exploring care for your aging parent(s). Kriste’s assistance with me, and my experience with her, has been nothing short of excellent. Her ability to streamline a process that is overwhelming for families and her personal connection is what is needed during this kind of transition. I could not have asked for a better resource with integrity and professionalism that is desired when searching for extended care of a loved one. Going forward, I will always recommend Kriste to anyone who needs help in finding an assisted living community or additional support resources for their loved one.”
