Not being a U.S. resident, I was looking for someone who could provide information on senior living options for my sister who lives in San Diego and is in the early stages of dementia. Kira Anthofer was recommended to me by “Love 2 Live’s Sheila Korn whose company has been tending to my sister’s needs one day a week since February 2012. As my sister is very independent, lives alone and can no longer drive, it was important to have someone looking in on her regularly and providing routine transportation services.

Although dementia is a progressive disease, it seems somewhat individual and I felt it was timely to start the process of searching for living options that would accommodate my sister’s life style as her disease worsens. Kira Anthofer fulfilled this requirement.

Kira’s process commenced with a three hour Home Assessment which provided an insight into Kathleen’s wants and needs. This was followed up with a visit to two diverse senior living situations; one large facility with a multitude of amenities and choices and two small B&B style environments located in a residential area. Kira’s previous experience as a working licensed FCFE administrator proved invaluable in providing my sister and I with an awareness of issues that will need to be addressed as this dreadful disease advances. Needless to say, I’ll continue working with Kira because of her courteous style and prowess as a Senior Living Advisor in the San Diego area.
