My mother moved to New Jersey from Florida about 4 years ago. We looked at several senior facilities. We were very impressed with Ellen Lamberson at Brighton Gardens in West Orange. Ellen was knowledgeable, kind and caring and I felt this was the right facility for my mother. My mom thrived there until she developed early stages of dementia. I was forced to move her to a nursing home facility about two years ago. We chose Daughters of Israel. My mother’s dementia was getting worse and her funds were diminishing. I knew Ellen was working at Sunrise of West Essex. I called her to see if she could help me with the Medicaid process and as usual, Ellen steered me in the right direction. She recommended Senior Planning Services to help with this transition. I had the pleasure of working with Brenda Moskowitz at Senior Planning. She was efficient and basically took charge of the whole Medicaid process. She was outstanding in every way and certainly helped our family through a very difficult time. I would like to thank both Ellen and Brenda for their guidance through this transition. I would highly recommend Senior Planning Services to other families in need.
