    “Having only come in contact with Kriste Kidd just over a one week ago, it is truly amazing what all has transpired in this very short time. My parents live 3 three states away from me and my brother and I have been trying without success to get my two elderly parents ( 95 and 90) into assisted living and possible memory care for well over one year. Due to an extreme deterioration in my mother's condition a couple of weeks ago, I reached out the county Adult Protective Services, my parents doctor, attorneys and more! No one seemed to have any workable plan for a solution that would assure the safety and well being of both of my parents. I did not want them to be found dead in their condo after almost 75 years of love and marriage so I took the wise counsel of a social worker in that county and called Oasis Senior Advisors. Very early on in our phone conversations I knew I had found someone dedicated to seeing my parents get the care they needed! It was never about the financial end of things. Kriste only receives what she very rightly earns directly from the care facilities and fortunately my parents had planned well and have the financial ability pay for excellent care. But they were too old, feeble and removed from reality to see that the time had come. There were some terrible incidents before Kriste really got involved where my mom left home to roam the neighborhood and many difficult things were precipitated by my dad's feeble condition. Once Kriste found a local in home provider and began to engage with doctors, government agencies and the local hospital she made it possible for me to remotely sign care agreements for both parents. She made numerous trips to visit my parents at their condo and was involved in lovingly coaxing my mom to travel to the behavioral wing for an evaluation. She made sure of arrangements to transport her to the memory center yet today! All of this would be amazing enough but remember this has all been accomplished in less than 10 days and totally during the COVID-19 lockdown in their ( and my) state! I will forever be grateful for Kriste's caring attitude, professional manner and her amazing ability to navigate this complex world of rules, restrictions and emotional challenges. The community of aged people and their children and spouses need to be made aware of this valuable resource named Oasis Senior Advisors and particularly Kriste Kidd! We have only met via phone and video conference but I do not know what would have happened without her dedicated service!”

    “It has been a pleasure to work with Kriste Kidd and Oasis over the past seven months. Kriste helped us find a suitable assisted living home for my brother in mid-2019 and then again when his circumstances changed at the end of the year. As we are located on the West Coast far away from western Maryland, her assistance was invaluable. She recommended available residences, organized visits, and offered sound advice based on long-time experience. I especially appreciated the fact that she has always spoken frankly about the advantages and/or disadvantages of particular locations. She is well informed about all the mind-numbing details related to elder care in the region. The service provided is the best, and I strongly recommend her and Oasis to prospective clients.”

    “My mother lives 4 hours away from me and had reached a point that she needed to go into assisted living. I was lucky to come across Oasis Senior Advisors to help me. Kriste and Gracie took my Mom under their "wings" and helped to make the transition smooth and stress free. They kept me posted every step of the way as to how the move was going and how my Mom was dealing with it. My Mom has dementia and is very disoriented, but Gracie knew how to work with her to make everything go smoothly. My Mom loves the new place she has moved to. I could not have done this on my own without their help. They even have connections with people to clean out Mom's house and get it ready for listing it for sale. If you need help in relocating a loved one, I highly recommend Oasis Senior Advisors”

    “Dear Kristie, I am writing to say thank you for the help you gave my brother in his transition from his home in Frederick to the assisted living facility in Brookville. As you know change is never easy for anyone, but you have been a steady presence and help in Ned getting use to the idea that he needs help in his day to day functioning. I was especially impressed with your professionalism and breadth of knowledge of the industry and your ability to find a location for Ned quickly at his time of need. When you live 800 miles away, as I do, your service has been invaluable.”

    “My family is so grateful of Oasis Senior Advisors for helping my father in law find a nice Assisted Living Home. Gracie and Kriste were so kind in helping us save time and stress by doing all the leg work. The free service they provide to seniors and their families was so beneficial to us and we really appreciate it. Gracie is so awesome! Kriste is so lucky to have such a great fantastic and wonderful person working for her. Gracie and Kriste made all the difference in choosing the right place for for my father in-law under circumstances out of our control. We wouldn't of known what to do without them. Jennifer & Greg”

    “The process of finding the perfect fit for your loved one can be an arduous process. Without the assistance of Kriste and Gracie my father would not be in the home he is in today; the perfect fit. My story is so long w/details not fitting for a public post; my father has been moved twice in the last 15 months due to negligent care and treatment. With that said, I could not imagine navigating the “waters of placement” without the services and expertise of Kriste Kidd. Kriste promised to find the perfect place for my father and she did! Above and beyond my expectations; above and beyond! The care, compassion, and overall concern about my father and my situation was not expected and definitely not foreseeable; it seemed as if Kriste was caring for her own father. Kriste, Gracie, thank you so much, I can now sleep at night knowing my father is being well taken care of. God Bless!”

    “I have a beloved 83-year old sister whose special needs for care combined with her acute intellect made it both imperative and difficult to find an appropriate assisted living facility as soon as possible. Depending on personal contacts, I had explored places in Tennessee --- where I now live ---and Maryland, where my sister was a resident. A faith-based facility on Maryland strongly recommended that I contact Kriste. at Oasis . Truly they were a Godsend! . Kriste responded to my phone call from Tennessee first by searching inquiry about my sister's needs, both immediate and anticipated, her interests and family ties . She then sent me detailed information on facilities she recommended for consideration in light of those needs and responded to my follow-up questions by phone calls and emails, including some from her personal experiences with the facilities , She arranged for tours of the facilities as soon as I could come to Maryland-- as I immediately did-- and provided Oasis' itemized charts by which to evaluate them and which caused me to consider factors I might otherwise have overlooked. Despite what I then realized was her already heavy schedule, Kriste accompanied me and a third sister to make a tour with comprehensive evaluation of the assisted living residence that we finally chose -- after further follow-up discussion with Kriste--- confident that it was truly right for our sister who needed care. And although she has been there for only a short time, her and our experience thus far has shown the wisdom of our choice and Kriste's invaluable guidance in helping us make that choice.. I cannot adequately thank her and Oasis.”

    “I cannot say enough about how much my family appreciates Kriste and Oasis Senior Advisors!! When my mom had a medical emergency that necessitated her going to rehab and then an assisted living facility. Kriste was there every step of the way and helped us to navigate all of the complicated details. Kriste sincerely cares and it shows!!! I highly recommend Kriste and Oasis Senior Advisors for anyone going through this difficult life transition.”

    “I wanted to say THANK YOU to Kristie at Oasis, she is an amazing woman. My mother was in a bad way at Frederick Memorial Hospital. I reached out to Kristie and she came immediately to see me. She helped my mother decide where to go and how to get there. We went to Tranquility in Frederick, where Kristie helped us through the process. The staff was wonderful there and the facility was what my mother wanted. Kristie stayed in touch throughout my mothers stay there and I can not thank her enough, considering my sister and I had never been through this. I recommend Oasis to everyone and will continue to do so. Thank you so much again, we love you !!!”

    “My mother had a health issue and ended up in a rehab. The staff told me she was not safe to return home alone and needed 24/7 care. My friend recommended an online agency to start the process of looking for assisted living home for my mother. Although I requested my mom being in a certain distance from where I lived and at a certain price point, out of the five options this referral agency provided, only one was in her price range and none were in the location I desired. My calls were seldom returned and I was left floundering. The social workers at the rehab suggested I contact Oasis Advisor, Kriste Kidd. and stated that she was knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. They weren't kidding! I called her and we met in person just a few hours later. Kriste LISTENED to what I desired for my mother including care, cost and location. She not only scheduled the tours for me at my convenience, she also toured every assisted living with me. She knew all of the communities and staff as if she worked there! Very impressive. After touring, she further helped me process my decision on what assisted living I should choose, never giving her opinion, rather keeping me focused on my priorities that were important. After meeting with Kriste, my stress and worries virtually disappeared. She made a difficult task more organized and manageable. She made herself available to me in the evenings and even toured with me over the weekend. I don't know what I would've done without her assistance. She even referred me to a real estate agent that listed my mother's home and was under contract in the same week! If you ever find yourself in a similar situation caring for an aging parent, I highly recommend Kriste Kidd & Oasis Senior Advisors! Her passion for helping others is unparalleled and she is an angel! I am forever grateful. Thank you Kriste for all of your time and support!”

    “My Dad had a stroke and Christmas day and was recovering after his rehabilitation. I was struggling trying to find A rehabilitation center for continued nursing care after his release. After several days of calls computer searches and sleepless nights worrying what we are going to do with little help from the social workers. I luckily came across Kristy site my family’s miracle worker! after chatting with her one evening and reviewing my dad‘s information and level of care, her work begin. She sent out several emails on my dad‘s behalf looking for a suitable care facilities. To my amazement when I checked my email the next morning she had miraculously found a home highly rated within 15 miles from my house and close to Amenities my dad would benefit from in his recovery. Absolutely amazing experience! You my Dear are an Angel!! Blessed to have found you ! Warmest Regards Karen Kane”

    “Oasis Senior Advisors is a godsend..! Kriste made it all come together almost effortlessly. Without her help and knowledge of the landscape, I would not have found the best place for my mother. She brought invaluable insight on so many different levels of what I refer to as the "hardest thing I've ever had to do"... placing my mom into a care facility. If Kriste hadn't come along, I would have most definitely made at least one significantly wrong choice... and probably many. She is committed to providing the most honest and caring advice and guidance during a time when all of us are susceptible to so many (or so few) options and choices. Looking back on this difficult time, I'm enormously glad that I found Kriste to help me make the hard choices. I wouldn't want to have tried to do any of what I had to do without her guidance... and especially without her compassion and caring. She's an angel from heaven..! Thank you Kriste..!! =)”

    “Kriste Kidd was my guiding light throughout the traumatic experience I found thrust upon me when I needed to find assisted living for my 98 year old mother. My mother, who had been living with my sister in law in Vermont these past 12 years, had a minor fall at home resulting in her being taken to the Emergency Room at the University of Vermont Hospital in Burlington. There she was diagnosed with pneumonia and admitted to resolve her issues. But I received a call from my sister in law stating my mother was not welcome back to her home, where she had lived these past 12 years! I was angry, dumbfounded and overwhelmed in regards to finding a new home for my mother! I contacted my lawyer here in Frederick who referred me to Kriste. That was like having a life saver thrown to a drowning victim ! After I contacted Kriste her kind words and list of resources started to put me at ease. After Kriste and I discussed what was within my mother's financial means she provided a list of facilities to explore. Kriste not only provided the list of these facilities, but accompanied me through the tour of the facilities we had chosen! This was invaluable and above and beyond the call of duty!! She provided me with a check list of things to look for during the tour such as staff evaluation, available activities, dining options, etc. With her help I was able to find a new home for my mother within 72 hours of contacting her! She again accompanied me through the contract evaluation and signing! Again, a truly remarkable individual to have next to you through this entire ordeal! I was truly amazed there was someone like Kriste and her company out here to help those of us in need! My brother and sister, who live out of state and unable to assist me in this ordeal with our mother were amazed I was able to find something so quickly. Our family cannot express in words the gratitude we have for Kriste! Her compassion and invaluable and endless resources to guide us through this most traumatic ordeal was truly a guiding light in the darkness that fell upon us suddenly! But we are now in the light and have confirmed a room for my mother who I will be flying down in the next couple of weeks. Thank you Kriste!! Sincerely, Brian , Patricia and Bruce Petrie”

    “I worked with Kriste Hartman Kidd. She is excellent--extensive knowledge, unbelievable compassion, and top-notch management skills. I could not have gotten through this difficult period without Kriste. She went well above her responsibilities, offering me support as she guided me through the process of placing my father in an assisted living facility for respite care. She took charge, kept me up-to-date, and worked within my schedule. Kriste even helped me with a billing issue at the rehabilitation facility. Her warmth and understanding relieved the stress I felt while making essential but emotional decisions. I highly recommend Kriste as an advisor.””

    “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 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.”
