It all started, when Mike started getting requests from friends and family to assist them in finding a suitable nursing facility for their loved one - or dealing with issues that came up once their loved ones were at the facility. Being that Mike has been in healthcare for 20 years as both a licensed nursing home administrator and running his own nursing home consulting company for MDS billing, they felt Mike was someone on the ‘inside’ that they could trust and rely on in their decisions. Families are all alone in the selection of a nursing home, first day of facility arrival, attending care plan meetings, checking in on the status of their loved one, dealing with issues at the facility, facility discharge, home care coordination and so many other important things. Mike was able to provide his inside expertise in helping these families make the best decisions and feel good in the process. It was then that Mike decided to start his own company officially providing these services utilizing registered nurses according to his model that he knew worked. Mike is passionate and committed to helping families in this very stressful time in a totally unbiased way.
