What Hired Hearts Clients Say
"Lauren definitely makes a wonderful impression on everyone that meets her. Everywhere she goes, they all comment on how wonderful she is. For that I am so happy and blessed that she is involved in my mom’s life even if it’s only visiting once a week.
Thank you both so much from the bottom of my heart. I really could not have done this without your help and efforts."
"We had the opportunity and pleasure of working with Karen Partelow and Hired Hearts for the past six years. What led to our business relationship was, unfortunately, five months of being ripped off by supposedly legitimate elder care agencies…..consider yourselves warned. This happens more than anyone wants to admit."
"I’d like to first thank you and Marion for your services over the last year and several months…
As you probably know, Mom’s physical health has been declining and is limited to home hospice care at this point.
We can’t thank you enough for all you have done to help Mom and our family, you literally are lifesavers!"
"Jaime and I can’t find the words to express our deep appreciation for all that you did for Mary during her last weeks, as well as for us. Your assistance made a challenging and stressful situation as bearable as it possibly could be. We would have been lost without you."
Kathryn & Jaime
"I cannot thank Hired Hearts enough for the guidance and professionalism given to my family as we worked through moving my father from his home to a more supported living environment. Karen's knowledge and advice steered us in a direction that has had an extremely positive result. Lauren worked closely with my father and he absolutely loved spending time with her. I knew when I couldn't be with him that she was looking out for his best interests!"
"It’s been a mere four weeks since my Dad passed away and, as you know, Mom passed one month earlier. Between planning their funeral ceremonies and mourning their loss, we’ve been focused on our parents’ memories and the legacy of love they left us.
I just wanted to reach out to you to tell you that our family is very grateful for all the efforts you made to help us stay informed about their circumstances. At a time when we were unable to visit them in person and hold their hands during their most difficult moments, it was nice to know you were there to help."
Barbara & Bob
Life has a way of throwing curveballs and our responsibility is to acknowledge the hardship and orchestrate the path to achieving our goals. I could not have possibly encountered the roads to my heart-breaking challenges if it weren’t for the stroke of luck I received by meeting Karen Partelow from Hired Hearts, Inc.
Karen’s company’s name comes from ‘THE HEART.’ Saying ‘thank you’ many many times to Karen came profoundly from my inner soul however I want to express to Karen my sincere appreciation.
I wish you and your loved ones ten-fold for the ‘gift’ you gave me.
I have been working with Karen Partelow and Hired Hearts since March, when my sister’s deteriorating neurological condition required her quick admission to a nursing home. Karen Partelow has proven to be a godsend.
Ms. Partelow took what for me seemed an overwhelmingly complicated and painful emotional process and made it doable. Specifically, she found a suitable nursing home, managed the transfer of my sister’s medical records, and coordinated everything needed for my sister’s admission. The calm and competent manner in which Karen did this provided my family and me an island of sanity.
