Back to Being a Husband, Not a Caregiver

"It was thanks to you that I discovered the perfect facility for my wife and it is living up to my expectations. I visit her almost every day, drive her to the quaint little town nearby and we go for a brisk walk. She has been at her most serene when riding in the car. Perhaps it reminds her of her traveling days. A few of her close friends who live nearby come with me sometimes. I am back to being a husband, not a caregiver."

Trained Second Set of Eyes & Ears

"Words cannot even begin to express how grateful I have been for your support for the past 4 years. I still remember the day we met at my mother’s Van Ness apartment. You calmly assessed the situation and helped me establish some stability over a situation that was beginning to spiral out of control. Having a trained second set of eyes and ears during the times of difficult decision making was a tremendous source of comfort. Without you, we never would have found the perfect facility which for my mom and our family was a Godsend."


"Thank you for everything you did for my parents. We could not have functioned without you. Your help added many months to the lives of my parents. You were a Godsend. God bless the work that you do."

Articulate, Intelligent & Thoughtful Advocate

"Just want to tell you again how happy we’ve been to have you as my brother’s care manager. You have had many new ideas that have been very helpful in meeting his needs. You respond quickly and clearly to any inquiry we have and you have been an articulate, intelligent and thoughtful advocate for my brother. After many years he is finally getting the help he needs."

Terrific Options & Support

"Just a quick note to let you know how wonderful our care manager was with my dad, she really got at the heart of things, offered terrific options and support. We feel relieved that we have someone in our corner. Thank you for sending her our way and making it happen quickly, so we could get some relief personally and for our dad."

Cannot Thank You Enough

"I wanted to thank you for being an advocate, friend and family for the past 5 years. Thank you for all the little things: TV, the fruit, sugarless candy, and the sugarless gum. Thank you for all the big items too… healthcare conferences, medical chart reviews, staying after the staff about dental care, eating and a whole host of other things. As I told you, I did not feel our client was alone, because she had you. I know her passing was hard on you because you were so close to her. I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for stepping in and the extra hours to see that she was not alone in her final hours. Thank you for arranging for the private duty aides and overseeing her care and conveying the information back to me."

Amazingly Helpful

"We were suddenly confronted with a crisis because of a fall complicated by Parkinson’s disease. Our care manager was amazingly helpful. She advised us on Rehabilitation Hospitals and helped us navigate the necessary steps to accomplish that. She visited and ascertained that my husband needs were being met."

A Big Difference

"I wanted to tell you how much we loved our nurse care manager. She was enormously helpful and supportive. She made a big difference in all our lives. I deeply, deeply appreciate all she did."

Hard Work & Compassion

"Thank you for all of your hard work, compassion and being a listening ear for both me and my father. He really liked you and you being there helped his many transitions. Thanks for everything."

Things Were Going to Get Better

"I wanted you to know that my dad called me tonight as soon as I walked into the house from work, and thanked me for sending you two wonderful care managers to help him take care of Mom and him. He sounded very tired, but the kind of tired that sounded like he could finally relax and know that things were going to get better. Unbelievably, I think you two have done a wonderful job of appealing to his desire to continue to live in the house but be able to take good care of Mom. I was so happy to talk to Dad and I had tears running down my face as they are now. THANK YOU for your efforts, caring and your kindness in dealing with my parents. It’s just been a fantastic miracle for our family."

Worked Tirelessly

"I can’t begin to express how much our care manager has helped my uncle and our entire family in making sure he is being taken care of as well as possible and in helping us arrange to have him transferred to a nursing home in Western New York. Our care manager has worked tirelessly to make sure my uncle’s every need has been met and has been in communication with me every step of the way. She has consistently gone out of her way to anticipate needs and details that I would have never thought of. Honestly, I just can’t imagine what I would have done without her. I only wish that she could be in New York to continue taking care of my uncle. I can’t imagine we could ever find anyone even close in excellence to take her place. Because of her, I will heartily recommend Debra Levy Eldercare Associates to any and all friends and colleagues who may be in need of assistance with an elderly person in their lives."

Guidance & Setting Limits

"We have been extremely pleased and comforted by the care management that your staff has provided for my mother and our family. Susy Murphy is indeed a skilled, kind, warm and knowledgeable care manager. She did a great job of giving guidance and setting limits with my mother’s caregivers. We have appreciated all of the support and assistance."

An Exceptional Investment

"As the adult child of a parent who was facing health challenges... I strongly recommend working with the team at Debra Levy Eldercare. Whether it's understanding and working through a hospital admission and discharge, finding resources for all aspects of home health care, or evaluating different housing alternatives, the Debra Levy team was accessible, efficient, knowledgeable, and responsive. They helped us find high quality professional resources, responded quickly when were were in a time crunch and alerted us to potential problems in advance so we were ready. Their agency name helped open doors and let other services know we were "legit" and made an otherwise very difficult process much easier, with a great combination of knowing the market, knowing the system and directing us to high quality resources. Working with the Debra Levy Eldercare team was an exceptional investment and certainly paid for itself through care quality, time savings, and peace of mind."

Superbly Informed and Compassionate

"I have had the pleasure of working with Susy Murphy and her team at Debra Levy Associates, in the management of elderly patients with neurological disorders in my Neurology Practice. I am frequently impressed with their depth of participation, their knowledge and insight in the health care of my patients. They are superbly informed, compassionate and responsive to the patients varying needs. Debra Levy Associates has inserted itself as an integral part of Healthcare for the elderly in the Metropolitan DC area."

Peace of Mind

"Meeting our care manager as the smart, friendly, kind, and competent face of this fantastic service provided us with great peace of mind. Our care manager understood the multiple challenges posed by our father... For the first time in nine years, we're breathing easier knowing that your care manager is in our corner — and even more importantly, in his."

What a Gift You Are

"What a gift you are for my mom and me! You not only have the perfect touch when it comes to approaching my mom's generation, but your knowledge of music and women's interests is fantastic... I love the details you give. It's like being there and I'm so happy we found you. You're a godsend for this faraway daughter who loves her parents so much!"
