Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with Melonie Pratt for almost five years, in my role as social worker for older adults in the Capital Region. When I referred clients to Melonie, I knew that they would get the best possible information and expert assistance. Melonie has great empathy for seniors in need of a new home. She understands how difficult it is to make a change, especially for an older person. There is no one more knowledgeable than Melonie; she would advise families about the latest in housing options and how to help with the financial side through help from the Veterans Administration,etc. I know her to be highly ethical and very trustworthy. I always did a follow up with my clients after they moved–those who worked with Melonie reported being very pleased with their new home and with the service she provided (at no charge to seniors!)” Stephanie Wolos, Service Coordinator

It has been such a blessing to have worked directly with Melonie Pratt of Choice Connections, for two placements into Assisted Living residences for my mother, June H. Melonie helped us get mom into short term respite following her emergency heart surgery in 2014. My mom was in rehab at the end of 2015 for two months and was in need of a higher level of care then the facility she was living at could provide. Melonie sent me detailed information about area facilities and set up tours. She handled a multitude of issues related to the placement, consequently lifting the burden for both mom and the family. Mom’s placement in the right community and Melonie’s followup are especially praiseworthy. Melonie is efficient, timely,, caring and thorough. She was a true pleasure to work with and such a help in a time of great needs and stress. Thank you to all who were part of her care team. You are all held in our hearts with fond memories.
