You showed great concern for my aunt’s well-being and provided me with much-needed support. We have achieved the best of all possible outcomes. Just saying ‘thank you’ isn’t enough, but I’m saying it anyway. You were a god-send.

Shirley is a caring professional who always has the well-being of her clients foremost in her mind. She is extremely wise, sensitive and intuitive. Without Shirley’s guidance, I know many of the elders she helps would have less comfort in their lives.

I knew and loved Shirley already, and I assumed because of who she is, that she would be good at her job. She’s not good; she’s brilliant. You don’t even have to know what questions to ask or where you need help. Whether you have aging parents or you have questions about your own future well-being and care, Shirley knows where to start.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Shirley, who helped transition my mother to an assisted living facility. After a rough patch in my mom’s life, she now has reasons to go on and has things to look forward to doing. Shirley has our gratitude always.

Shirley provided very useful support early on in the caregiving planning for our mother in Monterey, and then remained available for advice and guidance. We deeply appreciate her support and the services she provides elders in Monterey County.

At first, Shirley helped me organize my thoughts and feelings regarding my mother’s condition and wishes. As we progressed, she brought together all the available resources and helped me navigate through them to find what best fit our circumstances. She made phone calls I just didn’t feel up to making, arranged appointments, and went with me to make sure the right questions got asked. Many thanks for everything, Shirley.

Shirley Kiatta came to our rescue during a year of upheaval that involved both my mother and my mother-in-law. Each time she has given us advice or a referral it has been exactly what was needed, whether for making decisions about assisted living, dealing with Medicare reimbursement for skilled nursing, finding a reputable caregiver in Southern California, or locating an eldercare-savvy financial advisor. In fact, if we had followed her advice the first time we heard it, we would have found my mother-in-law the right living situation immediately, instead of after painful and costly trial and error. Shirley has been generous both with her time and expertise, and it has been a great comfort to have her on our team.

Thanks again, Shirley, for everything you've done.
