A couple of years ago when my Father In Law took ill, I contacted Jen for information. We were so new to having to deal with this, it was a great relief to have someone be able to say, 'Try this place'. Placing a loved one in a strange facility to be taken care of by complete strangers is very scary and to have someone who has been doing this for years, say, it's ok, this place is wonderful, takes a load of worry out of your heart.
Recently when we had to find a hospice facility for my Father In Law, I again contacted Jen. The man was a Korean war veteran, a hard working, family man who deserved the right to die with dignity and we needed a place that cared as he left us. Again, Jen gave us the name of three places and when the hospice rep mentioned the first place on her list and it matched Jen's first choice, it was a sense of relief. Sharon M.
Dealing with a loved one who can no longer care for themselves is a scary venture. You dont know who to talk to or who to believe and trust. Trying to find someone who will care about them as much as you do is not an easy task. But having a company like Elderwerks and Jennifer Prell behind you, it makes it a whole lot easier!
E. is now in a nursing home in Rochelle. The wealth of knowledge that you gave me I believe is what got the ball rolling in regards to getting her placed. Thank you so much. Regards, Pat P.
I wanted you to know that Tamara Kruse has been such a wonderful help to me as I worked thru the process of finding my parents a place to live. With sending housing possibilities, phone numbers, making calls for me, and always following up with me...I couldn't have found Emerald Village & kept my sanity at the same time without her! Many people have asked how I found the right place & I've shared "Elderwerks"...I also have an Elderwerks folder I am keeping for future use as things change!! So, thank you for your services...such a blessing to caregivers! Sincerely, Nancy P.
We are writing to thank you and everyone else who helped to make our journey to find senior housing for our Aunt Pauline much easier from the first telephone call we made to Elderwerks. It has been an experience in which my husband and I have never encountered before. With all the guidance we received from Elderwerks at the beginning of our search, the journey was a lot smoother. We appreciate all you did for us. Pauline (92 years young) is now situated in Victory Centre in Vernon Hills Il. as of April 30th. She seems to be adjusting fairly well. It is a stressful time for her with leaving her home, giving up her loving pets and not being able to drive any longer. The social environment has been a blessing for her and the assistance being provided to her is a blessing for us too. I have recommended Elderwerks to my brother and sister-in-law who are facing the same situation with her mother. Again, thank you and may God bless you. Margaret & Charles P.
I appreciate the kind assistance you gave me when my brother was ill. You may remember that he died while we were sill corresponding. In a way I hope I never need your professional services. But, of course, it seems that Elderwerks can assist in any one of many situations of need. So I shall keep your name and contact information in my computer and PDA files. Also I will be glad to refer your services to others in the event the opportunity comes up. I looked at your website and will now keep it among my "favorites". Thanks again. I am usually reluctant to establish a personal business association with someone I don't know. Many approaches are made by merchants who shout "its free" but soon afterwords demand $ for some necessary transaction before any "free" stuff can arrive. I have confidence in you. Jim F.
We do appreciate how you helped during this challenging time. You are very good at what you do. Best of luck with your new endeavor and we will keep you in mind should Mike need assistance with his parents (that is another tale!). Thanks again, Joan C.
