Personalized Referral Service
for Senior Living Options


“Lisa Bricker is a true gem! I am grateful for her guidance as I struggled to find a placement for my mother who has Alzheimer’s. As anyone in my position knows, making the choice to place a loved one in assisted care is an overwhelming and often painful process. Lisa understands these feelings from personal experience as she lends empathy and genuine understanding to her work with clients. Throughout the process of working with her, Lisa has been consistently available by phone and email for the multitude of questions I have had, from financial to emotional.

With Lisa’s authentic support and thorough knowledge of facilities/resources in the area, I have felt reassured that I have been making the best choices I can for my mother. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking to find the right fit for their loved one. I truly can’t imagine having gone through the process of placing my mother without her!”

“The services that Lisa Bricker and her able assistant Jenna provided were more than satisfactory. My husband’s needs were immediate and Lisa was able to identify several opportunities for his specific needs.

Their support came during a time when making decisions with clear thinking and caring was of great importance to me. I cannot thank them enough for being there during a special time of need.”


“I’m so grateful and appreciative of Gently Guided and Lisa Bricker for their expert advice and guidance in assisting us in evaluating senior living options for our mother.

Lisa’s personal experience and compassion were invaluable as we navigated our way through the difficult choices that had to be made for our mother’s care. Her extensive relationships, knowledge, and judgment as to available local facilities and the services they offer, meant that she provided us a warm introduction to facilities and caregivers uniquely tailored and suitable for my mother’s needs. This made our difficult task much easier.

We were well taken care of and served.”


“Recently, my family had to make the difficult decision to consider assisted living for my dad. Thankfully, my dad was agreeable, which made it much easier to proceed. We were referred to Gently Guided and after meeting the team, we knew we were working with the best.

Jenna and Lisa listened and assessed the needs which my father would require and quickly toured us through some wonderful assisted living communities.

The communities were nothing like I imagined. They had a sense of community and independence which had been lacking in my father’s life for too long. I feel like Gently Guided found the perfect arrangement for my dad and we appreciate all of their hard work and research to place him so successfully. My dad thanks them too!”


“Thank you Lisa and Gently Guided! My husband was diagnosed at the age of 57 with EOA, early onset Alzheimer’s. We have been taking care of him for 5 years at home, and mostly doing fine. When it became increasingly obvious that it was going to soon be unsafe, or impossible for me to go to work and keep caregivers at home, I made the difficult decision to start the search for a safe, and caring place where he could live.

I had no idea where to go, or how to find a place, or people I could trust. Someone recommended I call Lisa, to help in my search. I felt like I had spoken with a friend after the first phone call with Lisa. To be honest, I didn’t even ask who she worked for, nor did she speak of it as “work”. I had previously called a larger, nationwide placement company and felt like all they were doing was giving me a list of places to check out on my own, and wanted me to notify them when I found a place. They were calling me and emailing me, and I had only wanted to just dip my toes in, to see what was out there. Lisa was not like that at all. It took me a year to be ready, and ultimately decide on a place that felt right. Lisa was there through it all, having brought me to see multiple nice places. She would meet me in the evening after we both had been working all day, as well as on weekends, it didn’t matter, she was there.

I just want to say “thank you” for staying by my side through it all, and thank you for helping us find what we needed. It’s been an emotional journey, and I am lucky to have had Lisa “gently guide” me.”
