“Finding a “home” for mom is not easy. Because of Derek we learned the details we would never have thought of. He analyzed our needs and came up with several places. We could never have done this without his kind assistance and expertise. He spoke directly to my mom and made her feel involved. She found him “good looking.” There is no way we could have found the variety of places for my mom. Through him we found two we liked very much and selected one.”

“Derek has been extremely helpful over the past couple of years in assisting my family with some very difficult situations involving our aging mother. Given the fact that I live out of state, he coordinated visits with various agencies, as well as provided much-needed guidance regarding many aspects of placement. His assistance allowed for a much easier process from home and when in the local area.
He was always very respectful and courteous, as well as available with his time (with a great deal of flexibility to meet the needs of the moment). He really has a perfect balance of professionalism and personal approach that promotes a very pleasant yet very effective working relationship. I have no reservations in wholeheartedly endorsing Alliance Eldercare.”

“My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Derek Mannion of Alliance Eldercare during my mother’s stay at Laguna Hills Health and Rehabilitation Center in Orange County. My 85 year old mother was making a very slow recovery from a sudden illness and surgery, and we found ourselves in the position of needing to make some difficult decisions regarding her future care. Having never experienced this set of circumstances before, we had no idea what options were available, or even what questions to ask. I was in a fragile emotional state because I was so worried about my mom and was physically fatigued from weeks of making a daily drive from our home in Corona to the Laguna Hills facility.
Derek was calm, kind and knowledgeable and helped put my mind at ease. He answered many questions before I even asked them, and gave me insight into care options I didn’t know existed. What we decided to look at board and care facilities in the Corona area so mom could be closer to me, he arranged appointments at several very lovely facilities, and then even came to our home in Corona to pick us up and drive us to the homes. He helped up with interviewing the home administrators so that we wouldn’t miss any important details regarding mom’s personal care and about pricing options. We are so grateful for Derek’s invaluable assistance and would recommend Alliance Eldercare to others seeking help caring for their elderly loved ones.”
