We knew that there are government websites that could have provided us with the information that we needed, but the joy of David’s business is that he knows what is required, knows what paperwork needs to be done and is aware of the various nursing homes available and can undertake the negotiations for you. It made a potentially stressful situation so easy and comfortable.
