I am a West Hartford elder law attorney and have used Kate for years to help my clients. She is absolutely fabulous. In uncertain, emotional, stressful times, you need someone like her to take charge. She is a wonderful resource. As a lifetime resident she knows West Hartford and the surrounding areas and her extensive network is amazing. Can’t say enough about her and her services. She is a wonderful person and a wonderful advocate.

Our family first worked with Kate at her previous company, where she gave us invaluable assistance in managing our father’s care as he dealt with advancing Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Kate was available to help at every stage of the process, even when plans to care for our father at home changed abruptly and completely with a sudden deterioration in his condition, which necessitated an emergency hospitalization, finding a nursing home within a week, and beginning a Medicaid application. Kate was tireless in ensuring our father’s needs were met. She also provided us with an upfront estimate of the cost of services, and was scrupulous in keeping us updated with the time she was putting in assisting us.

After our father’s passing, we turned to Kate again to assist us with planning for a different scenario, as our mother is now on her own and plans to age in place in her home. We feel confident that we will be able to provide the best support and assistance to our mother with her help. Kate has a clear commitment and dedication to help families get through these difficult transitions with the best outcome possible for everyone. We cannot recommend her services highly enough.

Kate is a godsend! Not only is she highly knowledgable about care options for helping loved ones — but also provides critical support and recommendations for caregivers, who unfortunately have unavoidable overwhelm and stress during difficult times. Everyone needs a compassionate advocate like Kate!!

Kate Thaisz worked for me approximately one year – I hired her to assist in exploring a possible transfer of patient from Florida to Connecticut, to interface with family members who were novices with caregiving protocol and to deal with staffing issues. Kate excelled in all areas and surpassed my expectations. She was stellar in dealing with family members who were questioning patient’s care program. She was available 24/7 – and much of her best work was done on weekends assisting me with memos and communications to family members. I’ve been a caregiver in several situations the past 25 years and dealt with many providers of all stripes. Kate was one of the best and easiest to deal with – and I felt she “cared” about both the patient and my recurring dilemmas in dealing with the situation. Recommend her highly – anyone needing help in managing a caregiver situation can probably benefit from her expertise, experience and conscientious work ethic – she’s excellent. If you want to reduce the stress involved in your caregiver status (which can be high) hire this woman. Any dollars spent on her services will be well used, reduce your anxiety about the responsibility and result in higher quality care for your patient. If you want to talk to me directly Kate can give you my phone #.

This is literally the first time I've ever posted on this page but I wanted to give a shoutout to Kate Thaisz at Compassionate Choice, LLC. If you have aging parents and loved ones and need help making a plan, setting up care arrangements, trouble shooting elder care doctors attorneys anything really you can't do better than Kate. She likes to tell folks that she treats her clients as if they were her own family and she means it. You cannot find a better geriatric care manager. Truly, she cares and is a fantastic advocate for you and your loved ones.
