“I have tremendous confidence in recommending SPS to frail elders and their families. SPS consistently provides outstanding and professional service, tailored carefully to the needs—and, just as important, the preferences—of the individual client.”

“I am so thankful for how you came in and just took care of everything. We didn’t know how you could help but we knew you did. The way everything turned out, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Amy was wonderful, so were the two Marias, and Virgina. You are worth every penny.”

“I am writing in appreciation for all the kind attention and good work shown by your organization.
Senior Planning came into my life around an intervention for my elderly aunt in July of 2005. The situation at that time was unhealthy with her current caregivers. With Suzanne and Joe Wheatley’s help, changes were made with both her caregivers as well as her living situation which improved her health and outlook for the final years of her life.
As her nearest relative, my living out of Santa Barbara presented a multitude of issues. Joe was continually problem solving: monitoring her home and personal care, recommending changes, transporting her to medical appointments, changing caregivers as needed by hiring/firing and substituting as needed. He also monitored her medications, helped set up a lesser expensive program with her insurance for her medications, and interfaced with the physicians on my behalf. This only represents the tip of the iceberg of all the help rendered. And all the while he was being a dear friend to both my aunt and me. We both looked forward to his frequent visits and kind attention.
With Joe’s guidance we changed physicians, and then eventually moved into Hospice care. Joe supported and made possible Pat’s strongest wish, which was to remain in her home. She passed peaceably this month and will be missed by all.
I would highly recommend your services to anyone faced with the daunting task of caring for a loved one from afar. Your services are both thorough and fair.Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

“Since 2002, I have used SPS for the care of my parents and brother. Over the years, their needs and levels of care have varied. SPS has always provided caregivers that had the appropriate skills needed for the situation at hand. Whether it was 4 hours or 24 hour shifts, I always had the help that was needed. I was never without coverage. The caregivers that worked with my family were all very nice, and pleasant people as well as very capable. SPS provided our family with great peace of mind.”
