GUEST COLUMN: The Best Advice I Ever Got
Updated: Oct 5, 2022
Editor’s Note: Many of the guest columns you read in The Continuum are written by professionals who provide products, services, and advice to older adults and their family caregivers. In this issue, we are taking a break from that approach and instead sharing comments we received from a client named Shane C.
When I first realized that my mom needed more care than I could provide, I was kind of lost. I’d never dealt with a situation like this before. I was lost and a little afraid that I wouldn’t know what to do. That’s because I didn’t know what to do. But a friend of mine told me to call Takacs McGinnis, and it’s some of the best advice I’ve ever received.
Takacs McGinnis is a first-class law firm with a limitless knowledge of elder care and everything that goes with it, but they are also more than that. They give you peace of mind. When you’re going through something with an elderly loved one like I did, peace of mind is more important than anything. I know if a problem comes up with my mother and I don’t know what to do, I can call Takacs McGinnis, and they will tell me the right thing to do. You can’t put a price on that.
The first meeting I had with Tim and Pati, they made me feel like I was family, that I was important to them, and that my mom was as well. In fact, Pati visited my mom very shortly after she’d gone into assisted living. Mom is in a nursing home now, but Pati went there and made my mom feel safe, which made me feel very safe and secure and happy because my mom was reassured at a time when she really needed it, and that reassurance came from someone she had never met before.
Everyone at Takacs McGinnis is so kind and understanding, and that means a lot. I don’t care how efficient, proficient, and how much expertise someone has, in a situation like this, you need good bedside manner. You need someone who cares, understands, and is compassionate and empathetic. Everyone at Takacs McGinnis is all of those things. They come together for you. One of the best things I’ve ever done is becoming a Takacs McGinnis client. That’s the truth.
I’ve saved more money than I’ve paid. Once a year Josh Hunter looks at my mom’s Medicare plan and always saves me and my mom a lot of money. This year we saved a whole lot of money. It is more than worth it to sign up with Takacs McGinnis. I am glad to be a client and I hope you take the same advice as was given to me. If you have a family member who’s a senior, an elder, someone who needs more care than you can provide, call Takacs McGinnis. You will not be sorry. You’ll be taken care of.
