Brand. Wendy Simons has been known to me for 22 years. In that
time, I have had many occasions to invoke her expertise in the
care of elderly persons, both personally and professionally. In the early 1990’s, Wendy helped me to recognize the
signs that my parents should no longer live alone. It was a
difficult time for me and I was in denial. She helped me to

...From 1994 to
2004, I was a Deputy Attorney General for the state of Nevada.
One of my assignments was to represent the State Division of
Aging Services. Once again, Wendy became my consultant about
many of the tough issues faced by older adults and their
families. She also served on the Nevada Counsel to Prevent
Elder Abuse with me and helped me to propose important
legislation for protecting the elderly.
...Wendy is a true
elder care professional – the best I have ever met. She is an
innovative visionary in her field and a brilliant
administrator. She is honest, reliable, exceptionally
hard-working and is an outstanding advocate. I cannot recommend
her highly enough.

years. Her extensive knowledge relating to senior housing
and management from the perspective of an owner, operator,
legislator, trainer, and family member, have been
invaluable. Her warm compassionate nature makes her easy to
work with. We would highly recommend her services. " Mr.
