In 2015, I contacted Andreea Benea of Helping Hands for Seniors when I was seeking adult foster care for an elderly friend whose needs were such that she could no longer live alone. I found Andreea to be a knowledgeable resource with a wealth of information and great skill in assessing the needs of her clients. She spent a great deal of time showing me available foster homes in our area. She never rushed the process; rather, she was a skilled and patient navigator in familiarizing me with the many care options. She understands the governmental bureaucracy governing the industry and she thoroughly vets homes before offering them for consideration. I describe Andreea as a gifted compassionate service-oriented professional. Her dedication to serving her clients might best be described as a ministry. I continue to keep in touch with Andreea for advice and answers to questions I might have. I now consider her a trusted friend and I highly recommend her to anyone who is in a position to need her services. She will be a trusted advocate.
I was referred to Helping Hands for Seniors in July 2018 for my mom who was at St. Vincent’s Hospital for a hip fracture. I was completely overwhelmed by my mom’s condition and had no clue how to find her new housing and care options. Larisa and Monica gave me a complete education on the whole process and found mom an amazing place. I highly recommend Helping Hands for Seniors.
Helping Hands was the third referral agency I worked with to find a new home for my father. My father for the last year became severely demented and needed constant monitoring that most facilities were unwilling to accept. After working with Teresa and Monica for only a few days, they showed me several great options near my home in Beaverton and all of them were willing to accept my father. I am so grateful to Helping Hands for Seniors, specifically Teresa and Monica.
