ML Burke and Associates

Savvy's Services

Helping families and seniors find the best solutions for their increasing care needs at home or in residential care.

One of the most difficult times in a person's life is when they have aged to a point of losing some of their independence and require more care.  Often there is denial that they need more help or that they should stop driving their car.  Sometimes change can be very sudden as with a stroke or the onset of dementia.  The family must act to protect and advocate for their loved-ones and this can be both emotionally and physically draining. 

Savvy Seniors have devised a series of packages and educational materials to help seniors, caregivers and families through this difficult transition period of looking after their partners or elders while balancing their own busy lives. 

We offer a free consultation to determine your specific needs and what level of service you might want. If you have time to do your own research our reasonably priced Savvy's Custom Package is offered for a special introductory rate.  If you want to skip the consultation and fill out the Client Information Form, go to the Online Store.  Payment can be made through PayPal or by cheque.
