"Beth, along with warmth, skill, resources and knowledge was vital during my daughter's transition frim a young adult to becoming productive and confident woman. The support and advice that Beth offered was concrete and often allowed not only my daughter but me as well to leave her side with a ' package' of resources that led to hope of a positive future. Beth was there for us as a hard working professional. I will always think of her with with gratitude for all that she was able to provide."
— Joyce, Client and Mother of Client

"All is great...she is on the road to recovery, working part time, living in healthy in a Recovery House, making friends with the other women, seeing a PTSD therapist, doing ALL to help herself. The transformation back is amazing for me to see and enjoy, at last. Prayers that it continues. She is also seeing a nutritionist helping her to loose weight. I could not have had the hope and belief without you and Ed"

"Dear Beth, I have been living at AH 5 for over five years and I am very happy here. i have been okayed for unaccompanied walks of up to two hours every day and I usually take advantage of it. I love my room. I have a special diet, which facilitates my health. I enjoy my seatmate and his wife as well as another AH resident who lends me good books. I love the neighborhood. I am very grateful you connected me (that is Robin and my sister) with AH V. The care givers are very caring. I hope all is well with you and your company. I have been on a perfect medication mix for four months and hope to remain on it always. Good luck to you in your good work."

"Debbie Marcus at Calling on Beth has been a life line for our brother, and for us. I live far away, can come visit only rarely, and cannot help my brother as I wish I could. Debbie has really turned Bill's life around, from helping him sort through papers and put his apartment in order, to coaching him on healthy eating habits, to taking inventory and telling us what Bill needs, to bringing health and safety issues to our attention. He loves her visits, and I don't know how we managed before without her. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Debbie!"
— Sister of a man with autism and dementia

"Beth, I mentioned you to an administrator, Yolanda Mazyk of Shared Horizons, "Special Needs Trust".
I told her about all that has happened since we met with them in the Spring of last year and asked if she would
like your name. She wants it. I would like to go ahead and send it."
— Client's Mother

"I just wanted to say, that after the shooting yesterday, of the 2 television reporters, mental illness is very
serious, and very hard. I just want to thank you for working with one of the hardest populations to deal with;
the mentally ill. Thank you very much. You make such a difference. Please put my statement on your website!
I will do anything to let people who are suffering, to know that you guys are out there!!!!!!
Thank you sooooo much!"
— HC Client

"I appreciate working with her (Nelljean) as she helped me get out of depression so successfully."
— HC Client

"I was referred to Beth by a friend who had received a great deal of help for her adult son with autism.
My son was getting excellent therapy and case management but he was denied any other services we applied
for in spite of numerous appeals, So I contacted Beth. She interviewed us together and she was adept at
reading my son and his issues. She reviewed the applications for services that had been denied. She met with
his case manager to make sure we were on the same page. Beth was able to get him residential placement
within three months by interceding for him. I know this won't happen for everyone. I can just say it happened
for us and for someone else I know. We also have wonderful organizational help which is worth the money.
I am "learning to fish"!
Her administrator is personable and compassionate.
The services cost money, but I am glad we did it."
—Noelie

"You have had such an incredible impact on our lives. I cannot even begin to imagine what things would
have been like without your steadfast commitment to helping us get organized and out of our original house.
As we settled in to our new house, you were spot on about our need for regular maintenance and organizing.
Thanks again for stepping in and helping us get through our stuff and setting up good organization systems. The utility closet downstairs still looks great and functions beautifully. Thank you.

More importantly, you've provided me with the skills and tools needed to continue my efforts and I cannot thank you enough for doing so. You are such an incredibly caring person and I am always amazed with how thoughtful and considerate you've been to us and your other clients. Even though you are retiring from organizing, I truly hope we can continue to keep in touch with one another over time. I have not been so good at it as of late but hope you know that I've been meaning to drop you a note just to say, "hi"."

——Client who received services from our Professional Organizer

"Seeing a loved one sink into Dementia has to be about he loneliest and most helpless experience one can imagine. I literally did not know where to start in finding proper treatment for my wife, all I knew was that I could no longer provide all of it. When I first contacted Beth of Housecalls the first thing she did was to start providing information and begin educating me about what we were facing, and how the system worked. Soon after she brought in her team to construct a support system for both my wife and myself, and helped us find in home aides. When my wife entered assisted living the team continued to support us. On several occasions Beth went with me to lawyer's appointments and the like, which was invaluable as I did not really even know what questions to ask."
——Kirt, Husband of Dementia Patient

"Dear Beth, These past few years honestly we could not have done it without you. I know right now my mom and dad are at peace and knowing my son is safe and happy gives me peace. Thank you for everything. We love you. Mother of a son with Autism and parents who were in major life transition."

"Hi Beth, Your "House Calls" visit last week was really productive and you were able to succinctly address my issues with my New York City adviser. You really summarized for me in a clear and concise way what I wanted to communicate to Hank, and after you left my home I was able to send him an e-mail addressing some of my troubling issues with him. I really appreciated your understanding of, and assistance with what for me seemed clouded and confusing and in only a short while you cleared away the cobwebs. So, thanks Beth and "House Calls" for your ideas, knowledge and helping lift my spirits when I needed you. I know I can count on your shoulder and skills for the next time!"
—Fondly, Carol

“Beth, thanks so much for doing an inventory of our lives and getting us to prioritize and focus on what matters. Putting us in touch with Margaret was singularly one of the best things that has happened to us. Margaret, your diligence and patience is commendable. You did something that very few people could do for me and that is to work with me in such a way that made organizing rewarding and actually enjoyable. I am now a stickler for order in our household environment and am completely committed to purging as appropriate.”
—Nellie Wild, Client

"We cannot thank you enough for all your support and advice. While I was dreading today's shopping excursion, and for the first few minutes it looked as if it was going to be contentious, it ended up being one of the most enjoyable times I have had with my mother in over 20 years!While shopping we were able to truthfully and factually talk about her health and her abilities and what support she needs and my ability to stay calm and focused and keep directing the conversation back to the realities of our move and her needs and how she will achieve them was nothing less than liberating. And that achievement is in no small part thanks to the both of you and your help in assessing the situation and outlining what needs to happen. In fact it was so enjoyable and truly open that I took her out for Pizza so we could continue to talk."

"The Breakfast Club has done wonders for my social life. I know I can count on our twice-a month meetings to brighten my mood, whether we play card games, board games, or word games. In addition to the fun of playing games with a group, I have been able to connect with others struggling with similar mental health issues. I have made a really good friend, at a time when I didn’t know that this was possible.Debbie brings us all together—she is a terrific leader. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and she supports us when we’re down.I remain grateful for the existence of The Breakfast Club."

"We were all very pleased with Debbie's support. Doug and I believe that because of her calm and reassuring presence, no one was on edge about potential problems, and Paul was really great. He had been great all weekend. He offered a very nice toast at the rehearsal dinner, and I think the fact that he was getting so much positive attention that it helped to calm him.Another reflection is that when we started working with you, I wasn't quite sure what benefit we were going to see. I now feel that our family has a resource that we can use either continuously or for shorter "bursts" when we anticipate a higher need for supports.Thank you to the House Calls team that were part of our overall wonderful family experience."
- Marisa and Doug
