Linda-and-MaxineI have known Claudia for a number of years and admired her commitment to helping others. When she mentioned the Organizer which had come from her own parental experience, I was intrigued. My mom was in her late 80s and we needed to be prepared for the future. I attended the initial workshops and was amazed at the breadth of information. I started with a notebook for Mom and then did one for myself. The lists of medications, medical history, medical procedures and physicians was a challenge to complete, but has been invaluable as recently as November of 2013 when Mom broke her hip. We take the notebook with us to doctor’s appointments and we have also included completed wills, durable powers of attorney, Oregon Advanced directives and funeral arrangements to ours. I have recommended it to other family members, and highly recommend it to anyone over 50. It can save a lot of questions for your family in the future.L and M Devries, Tigard, Oregon
Janet and David - 1Over the past few years we realized that some of our aging parents needed assistance, so we began helping them in a variety of ways. We decided to take the Senior Care Workshop offered at our church by Claudia Rumwell, and purchase the Senior Care Organizer. We had some knowledge of things we needed to do, but the information we received and the materials contained in the Organizer provided us a comprehensive guide to all aspects of senior care needs. The extensive research contained in the Organizer, and the tools we received were instrumental in assisting us in the support we needed to provide. In addition, Claudia has been an encouragement to us personally. The information she has provided in the organizer has saved us a tremendous amount of time and research. We would highly recommend purchasing the Senior Care Organizer and attending a workshop to assist in the needs and concerns of your senior loved ones.D & J Ming, Tualatin, Oregon
Ron BoyceThank you so much for your interesting and informative presentation to my clients at our recent Coffee Talk meeting. Your motto “Preparing Early Reduces the Stress of Future Urgency” is very much alive today and definitely hit a chord with my clients who attended the presentation. Several have asked me for your card as they recognize the importance of preparing for future events, that only planning for can be controlled. I will recommend The Senior Care Organizer to all of my clients as a necessary part of their comprehensive financial planning process. I have been helping folks with their important financial decisions for the past 35 years and I cannot think of anything more important to their future well being than to complete The Senior Care Organizer you have developed. Peace of mind is so very important to us as we age and your Organizer is the solution to this very important need. Thank you again for your great presentation, and I will highly recommend you to others.Ronald C. Boyce, CFP, President Boyce Financial Group, LLC Vancouver, Washingtonboycefinancialgroup.com
I bought the Senior Care Organizer last spring. After some of our discussions at seminars, I shared with you that my Mom had been absolutely resistant to discussing any plans for future care, end of life, etc. She has had some health struggles since the holidays. I took the nicely tabbed Organizer notebook to her house this past weekend and we went through the entire document without a single tear. It allowed for open discussions about so many topics and issues – current and in the future. I thank you so much, my friend, for giving me the appropriate method to allow these conversations to occur. What a blessing that day was for our whole family.C. Peterson, E. Palestine, Ohio
After becoming aware of The Senior Care Organizer Workshop, I asked Claudia if she would meet with a group of my clients and present The Senior Care Organizer to them. The response from my clients were very positive and it motivated several to take action. This is information that every adult regardless of age needs to be aware of to understand the challenges ahead for them or their parents.Douglas R MacLardy, President Columbia Associates Financial Group, Vancouver, WAcolumbiaassociates.com
We are a large church with an increasing number of baby boomer adults moving into the senior age bracket. This has made ministry to this growing population very important. We find The Senior Care Organizer to be a very helpful tool for offering structure and assistance to the complex issues concerning seniors and those offering support to aging parents. We are using this tool to offer individual support, but also as a guideline for developing our ministry structure. It offers organizational clarity, with refillable forms, to the growing concerns of seniors that we needed to address – medical, legal, care giving, financial support, etc. – in a clear and concise way.Linda Noah, Communications/Spiritual Formation Pastor Portland Christian Center Portland, Oregonpcctoday.com
You have done a wonderful job of putting together all the pertinent information for those people who have loved ones who need care or placement, etc. We commend you for such a great work!

You have certainly done your homework, researching for this project, plus first-hand knowledge, and it shows. Again, congratulations, Claudia on a job well done!

Helping an aging parent, relative or friend can be an overwhelming task. The Senior Care Organizer is a highly useful information kit to help someone get started. It can be totally personalized for each person, and important information is at your fingertips. Jane Patterson, Elder Law Attorney Gresham, OR
In my 22 years in business I have never encountered a better winning combination in written resource material. The Senior Care Organizer consolidates excellent care giving information and insights with the practical ability to store it in an organized manner. This is a planning resource adult children should purchase and complete with their parents, and professionals should consider as gifts for their aging clients. I thought it was so valuable, I purchased two for my loved ones!Mike Skiens, CEBS, CLTC, President MasterCare Solutions, Inc. Portland, ORltcexperts.com
