I've referred several of my friends to Bridget for assistance with their elderly parents. They couldn't thank me enough for the referral. Prior to their Careplan meeting they were not aware of any service providers that provide this kind of service. In each situation, my friends received the right amount of support their unique situations required. They couldn't be happier. They've gone on to recommend Careplan to their family and friends.

I have referred several clients to Bridget Ritossa at Careplan. She exhibits unparalleled expertise, compassion and professionalism in attending to the needs of each of her clients and their extended family members. Bridget has an abundance of resources, contacts and services that is truly a benefit for families. Bridget will explain the entire process as well as pros and cons of in-home care, assisted living or more specific skilled nursing facilities so that families can make a well-informed and confident decision on the best long-term needs for their family. In addition, I have personally use Bridget and her services to assist in the management of more than one of my immediate family members. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with aging family members.

I am a social worker in the Cleveland area have had the pleasure of working with Bridget Ritossa several times in assisting with the coordination of various services and needs of her clients. She has always been prompt, professional, but, above all, caring and compassionate. She alleviates much of the stress and anxiety that comes with assisting a love one, especially from a distance. She is an asset to families and clients alike.

Bridget and Careplan were the single most important factor in helping me with my peace of mind as I was going through a very long process of taking care of my mother through her transition from her home to rehab, and finally to hospice. The guidance I received helped me wade through the incredibly confusing waters of the geriatric care system. Bridget's knowledge of Medicare and Medicaid, and her personal experience with regional nursing homes, helped me make all the right decisions for my mother in an appropriate and timely manner. Without Careplan, and Bridget's thoughtful assistance, I would have never known how to help my mother through this very challenging time. I recommend Careplan without reservation!

As a nurse having experienced both hospital and home care settings, I cannot underestimate the importance of a knowledgeable and compassionate care manager. I have experienced many cases where the current home situation is no longer safe, healthy, or appropriate because of declining physical and/or mental health. Knowing where, when and who to turn to can be difficult.Bridget has made that transition much easier for many families. She has the knowledge, compassion and the will to search out the best resources for the client and family. I trust her to do a competetent and thorough job each and every time.

Careplan Geriatric Care Managers helped with guiding my mother and father-in-law from their home to an assisted living. Our geriatric care manager met us in the hospital after my father-in-law was diagnosed with heart failure. My mother-in-law had Parkinson's and could not be left alone. Bridget Ritossa and Careplan Geriatric Care Managers found reputable in-home help for Mother while Father was in the Cleveland Clinic. Bridget worked with the hospital discharge planner and our insurance to find the best care community for us, taking into consideration our finances and lifestyle. Currently my parents are both living together in a life care community in Cleveland that offers all I could want for them. Great care, social activities and peace of mind for me and my siblings.
