Testimonial from Todd’s Family

Our family hired Gen By Gen to manage our Dad’s care. He is living in an assisted living residence and is very well cared for but he suffers from Parkinson’s disease and other medical issues. We are a “hands-on family” and were skeptical of whether or not we needed a service such as Gen By Gen to help with my Dad’s care. In the short time that we have employed them, they found a new neurologist for our Dad, a new spine and pain management doctor and they accompany us (virtually) on our doctor’s visits. This “listening in” has proven to be the most valuable because their PA will listen in, ask medical questions about our Dad, and confer with the doctor on best practices for him. Information that we would never know to ask or suggest because we are not doctors! Then, before the end of the day, the notes from the visit are written up (with action items!) and emailed to our family so we’re all getting the same accurate information about his visit. This has been so helpful for us to know that we have a medical professional monitoring his care and making sure he gets the best care possible!

Thank you Gen By Gen!
