I just got off the phone with Dad. I can’t tell you how happy he is with you and your follow up. You removed remaining doubts and helped complete more paperwork he says. Thanks again for your efforts.
— Tom, son
A heartfelt thank you!
We truly appreciate you for helping us navigate the road to Assisted Living for Dad. This would have been very daunting for us without your expertise and kindness, so I offer a heartfelt thank you!
— Michele, daughter
I can’t believe it was 2014 that you helped me. It was not a moment too soon! (After initially moving into independent living) The next year we got Mom and Dad on the assisted side and now they are in progressive memory care! I think what I appreciated the most about your help was our meeting at Starbucks and you just being a great listener and assuring me that I was not crazy 🙂
— Wendy, daughter
Liz was such a help to me & gave all the time I needed to make decisions.
Thanks Liz, I really always look forward to touring with you. As I have said before… you are my favorite agency to work with.
–Lisa, Marketing Director for an Assisted Living and Memory Care Community
Thank you is so in order for all of the help you have provided to me with finding a good spot for my dad. After we spoke on the phone the first time, my shoulders and entire body dropped in relief, since I felt I was not the only one to do everything on this journey. You sent forms! You sent contacts! You toured with me! You talked with the facilities’ staff in my stead! Thank you a zillion times for what you do.
It was a gift
Thanks for all your personal support for me and my husband. It was a gift to be his wife again for his last year.
Care and heart
Liz, thank you very much for all the care and heart you invested in helping my family, and especially me, as we explored options for my mother. You listened carefully. You asked focused questions that helped us to figure things out. You laid out a variety of possible living situations and helped us identify the sorts that would work best for Mom. You also educated me in the complexities of the public resources available to eighty-eight year old folks with dementia. I will fondly remember our conversations as we drove about, and your willingness to flex and alter plans on the fly as our thinking took new turns. I always had a sense that you kept the human aspects of what we were about squarely in front of you. Again, thank you.
Thanks so much for all your help
You made a very difficult time less stressful- I knew we were in good hands – I will definitely let you know if anything changes – And I will send you referrals whenever I can!!
Day 17. Beyond thankful for Liz Mansfield Fischer. I’ve known Liz for over 15 years, but this past year she has impacted my life in such a positive way. Liz owns Right Fit Senior Living Solutions and listened to me to help me find the “right fit” for my mom. She lets me know of things going on in the community and tomorrow my mom and I are meeting up with Urban Excursions to hopefully set my mom up with some fun adventures. If you are looking for a new place for a parent, contact Liz!
–Rhonda Gray Taplin
Thank you for the tour today. The home was beautiful and the caregiver well qualified. Thank you for arranging the visit…your guidance has been invaluable.
Expressing my Gratitude
I am spreading the word about you and your excellent service – even mentioned you this morning on my caring bridge site (still writing on my husband’s site with followers all over the US) expressing my gratitude to you !!
You Made it Run Smooth
We both along with our Mom want to thank you so much for your quick assistance on finding a place for Dad. It was pretty stressful and you made it run smooth for us. If anyone needs help in placing their parents we’ll send them your way.
Again thank you so much.

She is Amazing!
When I started helping my sister-in-law look for an assisted living facility which would meet her needs, I had no idea there were people like Liz Fischer out there to help. Of course I should say right away, I doubt there are very many ‘like Liz’. She is amazing! Once she has taken a person on as a client, she never stops thinking of ways to help AND following through with action on the thoughts.
We were not sure what to ask when we visited facilities OR even where facilities were to visit. Liz had all the information AND she went right along with us to be sure all the questions were asked and important information was not overlooked.
When other family members questioned the cost of assisted living, I told Liz of my frustration in trying to make them understand. Liz immediately prepared and sent me a letter telling of her own parents’ recent experience with a move into assisted living. She stated that her father could not believe all the things he wasn’t having to pay anymore. She also attached a wonderful chart showing the various items which no longer cost an assisted living dweller anything. She did my work for me and I simply forwarded her letter and chart to family members. They were very supportive after reading those items from Liz.
If you or someone you know is starting to think of making the move to a different living situation because of age, I can think of no better way to start than with a call to Liz!
Sincerely and very grateful,
Heartily Recommend Rene’s Services
When it was time to move my father from Salem to Portland to be closer to us, Rene helped us locate the best place. She listened to what we wanted and set up several tours. She sent directions. met me at the first location with a bag of materials, and took notes at each place on the tour. She was a sounding board without pushing any choice on me. We were able to move my father much more quickly than I expected. A few months later, a change in my father’s health required a very quick move. I called her Friday to help us find a new facility and move my dad in a week! She leaped into action, searching for appropriate places that were set up to handle his needs. She quickly set up tours and continued informing me of additional options. When I was worried about my father’s health, it was such a relief to have help with the overwhelming task of finding new housing on such a short deadline. Rene was organized, thorough, supportive, and impartial. We are so happy with the place she found for Dad; he’s been living there happily for 3 months now. I heartily recommend Rene’s services to anyone needing help moving a loved one.
You Truly Were a Life-Saver!
Liz, You truly were a life-saver!!!…. And I would recommend you to anyone!
We are so happy [Mom and Dad] are where they are and know they are safe. Now I just feel like we need a guide book like we had for our children as babies. Every day presents new and interesting challenges 😉
Take Care, Wendy
Your Help Was Invaluable To Us
Rene, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your help in getting our mother settled into her new home. The illness that led to her need to transition into an Independent Living Facility was both sudden and unexpected. Honestly, we had no idea where to start with this process. Your help was invaluable to us. Your knowledge of the facilities in the area and combined with your understanding of her needs made the whole process easier and less stressful for our mother.
We were especially impressed with how quickly you were able to arrange for a tour of the facility we chose. We contacted you on a Monday and by Tuesday we were able to visit Laurel Parc. Your knowledge of the facility was very helpful and your relationships with the facility staff were also very reassuring to us. You helped to calm our fears and were able to make our mother feel more comfortable with the whole situation.
Thank you again for your outstanding service and your compassionate attitude during this very difficult time.
Steve and Vicki
Thank You For Your Help
Hi Rene, I want to thank you for recommending [the] Care Home to me for my Mother. I feel she is in very good hands there and I do not have to worry about her which is very important to me. I know she is safe and comfortable and fed good, healthy food. The owners are kind, caring people.
Thank you for your help as I would have had a lot of difficulty if left to my own devices to find placement for her.
Love Their New Assisted Living Home
Rene helped us relocate my husband’s parents from Arizona to Portland. We had some very specific needs in the way of location and services that we wished to pursue for the new home of the parents. Rene was able to provide detailed information for these needs and make appointments with the appropriate facilities at convenient times for my father-in-law’s initial visit in April, which narrowed the search to two different choices. Once they both arrived in July they made a final choice and love their new assisted living home. Occasionally having a third party to consult gave the parents confidence that they were making the choice more independently.
The S Family
Rene, we just wanted to thank you for helping us find assisted living for my mother. Your personal assistance, understanding our situation and what kind/location of a home we were looking for was extremely helpful.
Over The Moon
I could not be more thrilled with where you have placed my father. We are over the moon with joy with him being there. I cannot thank you enough or say enough good things about this place, they are just amazing… Thank you so much!
Thank You So Much
The Adult Care Home was a good match for Mom and I really appreciate your help with getting her there. You made our last days with our Mother so much better than it could have been.
Best wishes to you.
