Like You

  • "When my mom had a stroke we had no idea what level of care she needed and we certainly didn't expect to pay such a high price, Care Watchdog put us in touch with great communities.
    Very Appreciative."
    Susan B. Cherry Hill, NJ
  • "When my widower father suffered a bad fall, and was subsequently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, I knew that I’d need help placing him in a facility that could not only care for his physical needs, but his psychological needs as well. With the help of Care Watchdog we were not only able to find the perfect long-term care placement for my father, but we were also able to navigate the difficult waters presented by Medicaid, and the estate planning that is required by that program."
    Brian P. Atco, NJ
  • "Elder law and estate planning is a complex area of the law and he has really mastered it. I am more than pleased with their work in regards to quality and expediency. I highly recommend Care Watchdog to anyone needing guidance in this area."
