“Marcy Baskin is incredibly good at her incredibly difficult job. Compassionate, highly intelligent, forthright, fast — and a great communicator. You could not have a better ally than Marcy when navigating the emotionally charged (and financially intimidating) waters of trying to find good elder care for a loved one suffering from dementia. Marcy is amazing and I recommend her very, very highly. Thank you, Marcy!"
