What Our Clients are Saying
Growing Options Restored My Hope
“My grandmother suffers from dementia. Just when I had lost all hope of keeping my grandmother in her own home, I met Lisa Krauss, of Growing Options. Through Lisa’s expertise and care, my grandmother’s quality of life has greatly improved and she remains happily in the home she has known all of her adult life with a loving caregiver found by Lisa. It is clear from working with Growing Options that all of their clients are a priority, and they genuinely cares for each and every one. Lisa and I have faced many difficulties during my grandmother’s journey with dementia, and she has been there for both my grandmother and me every step of the way. I no longer feel so helpless and alone in navigating through the challenges of this horrible disease. I am so grateful for Lisa!”

Loving Support, Guidance, and Care
“Growing Options provided loving support, guidance and care for my mother over the past few years. It is so challenging to deal with the aging of a loved one and the associated care requirements over time. Lisa Krauss and Growing Options provided the sensitive support and guidance we needed at a very difficult time. I would highly recommend her skilled support to anyone facing the challenge of caring for a loved one who is facing the challenges of age and the associated loss of capability.”
— Anne Mulcahy – Fairfield, Connecticut
The Dignity & Respect My Mother Deserves
“Lisa Krauss, and her team at Growing Options, have been an invaluable resource over the past 1½ years. As my mother’s health has deteriorated, she has provided our entire family with support and counseling, while never losing sight of the fact that her primary advocacy role is for her patient. Her plain speaking to her patient and family allowed my mother to articulate, and her children to truly understand her wishes, and make decisions with those in mind. Her access to trained caregivers allowed Mom to stay at home until recently. When that was no longer possible, she helped us navigate the transition to a skilled-care facility without sacrificing the personal attention that has given her comfort. We were all frightened and thinking only about the crisis that brought us to Lisa initially. She encouraged us to begin talking about the long-term, providing information and resources to educate us every step of the way. Navigating the process of a family member aging with dementia is painful for everyone. Aided by Growing Options, our family is providing the care, dignity and respect that our mother deserves.”
