    “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.”
