Helping parents or grandparents with senior transitions can be extremely confusing and challenging.
As one woman April worked with said…
“Gettin’ old ain’t for sissies!”
Before returning to work in the Real Estate industry, April worked in the Senior Care field for seven years.
She helped seniors and their families with all of their care needs during a very, very challenging time of life for everyone.
One thing she realized after helping with her grandmother’s transition and then helping many other families navigate through those transitions, having a solid care plan created in conjunction with someone’s other health care providers, is absolutely essential.
Also, knowing where to find trustworthy information and help is critical.
There are a lot of resources out there — the big problem is most people don’t know they even exist.
For example, many Gainesville residents don’t know there is an adult daycare center located within the community that can help working families care for their elderly loved ones.

There are also programs available to Veterans that can help, too.
April is one of the few Realtors who specializes in Senior Transitions.
Cindy helps seniors and their families with Reverse Mortgages.
There’s a lot of misinformation and misconceptions about Reverse Mortgages out there.
She is happy to help answer any questions about them so that senior couples and their children can decide if a reverse mortgage is right for their individual situation.
From The Heart Moment
Over Christmas, Beronica from Dorcas Place — a mobile, nonprofit children’s clothing closet — sponsored Christmas Blessings an event during which she collected toys in conjunction with The Edge Church. Everything went directly to the children.
Dorcas Place Gainesville is a community-oriented organization that provides families in need with new or gently used children’s clothing and shoes, and hygiene items for FREE.
