Here’s what others are saying about us…
“Cindy Hasz was referred to me by an elder law attorney and I engaged her to became my mother’s care expert in what would be the last 18 months of mom’s struggle with Alzheimers. When I first talked to Cindy I could tell I’d found someone who not only understood mom’s disease and home care needs but as a nurse could help our family navigate the medical care minefield for mom that dementia patients have to traverse. Her expertise guided our family in all those ways during those 18 months.
Initially Cindy monitored mom’s narrow ability to remain in her home safely. Cindy’s Grace Care staff came to mom’s home daily, prepared her meals, dispensed her meds and assisted mom with her grooming and incontinence issues. When mom could no longer remain at home, Cindy guided us through a circus of transitions from home to ER to hospital to skilled nursing to residential care followed by more hospital, more skilled nursing and more ER events. A number of times Cindy and her management staff were brought in to advocate for mom in order to resolve frustrating physician care issues that neither we her family nor her RCF could resolve on our own. And finally, in mom’s last weeks, and after an increasing number of chaotic trips to the ER, Cindy intervened to obtain hospice nursing for mom after it had been denied because mom had only “dementia” as a diagnosis. Cindy helped Kaiser ER physicians understand mom’s need for hospice. As a result, mom had four weeks of peaceful and excellent hospice nursing care followed by a peaceful death in her own bed with her family and familiar caring residence staff by her side.
Mom’s Alzheimer’s journey was more difficult than I ever could have imagined, and having the aid of a certified geriatric care manager like Cindy to assist our family was a godsend. Cindy was always a dedicated guide and mom’s advocate. We were so very fortunate to have found her and I can whole heartedly recommend her and her care staff to anyone.”

“I want to thank Grace Care Management for providing such great care to my dad and his wife. The caregivers have given them OUTSTANDING care and should be congratulated for all their efforts. My sisters and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us. Dealing with aging parents is never easy but you made the pathway so much easier.”
— Christine, Grace Care Client
“Grace Care Management provided enough help that my father was able to live in his house until he passed away recently. My sister and I live hours away from my father’s home, but both our Assistant Care Manager and Caregiver provided really great care; when they were assisting him, they treated him like a member of their families. The office was flexible about scheduling, and our Assistant Care Manager did a particularly good job choosing caregivers that were compatible with my father’s personality. I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for assistance with family members.”
— Linda, Grace Care Client

—Judith Burzell, Private Fiduciary
“Cindy Hasz and Grace Care Management have been my right hand, looking after my wife Doña since she came home from the hospital after a stroke last year. At a time of chaos and stress, Grace Care Management stepped in to organize home care, medications and a host of other details, all of which were new to me. Their support was truly invaluable. Now, six months later Cindy and her team of wonderful caregivers are an integral part of my wife’s care. ”
—Giles Bateman, Grace Care Client
“We can’t say enough good things about Cindy Hasz and her team of well-trained compassionate caregivers at Grace Care Management. The attention to detail, nurse care management, medical coordination and consistent knowledgeable home care was vital to us when my husband returned home after a life-threatening accident. I believe that one of the reasons he is doing so well today is a result of the excellent support we received from Grace Care Management during the early days of his recovery”.
—Stevie Eller, Grace Care Client
“My parents had been married 65 years and moved together into an Assisted Living Center last year. Soon after my mother fell and broke several bones, we started to work with Grace Care. We quickly learned that there are many gaps in the care that the elderly receive, even at the best facilities. Grace Care provided nursing services, helped manage her medications, brought her to doctor appointments, and helped us coordinate all of the various health professionals and caregivers. Later, when my father became ill, Grace Care helped us with end-of-life care which was sensitively designed around the needs of the family. We will be forever grateful for Grace Care’s consistent and loving support.”
—Jack Goldberg, Grace Care Client

Grace Care’s fully integrated team approach has facilitated the very best outcome for my patient.”

“Our family appreciates the fine care the staff of Grace Care Management is providing for my wife Lisa. Grace Care Management has put together a great team of three caregivers that we are comfortable having in our home and always look forward to their daily visits.
The caregivers are very dependable always arriving on time with a helpful attitude and eager to work, they have great ideas using their training and experiences to improve Lisa’s care.
We are extremely pleased with the reliable consistency and continuity of care as they maintain Lisa’s daily routine. They achieve this high level of care by the way they keep each other informed.
Grace Care Management and homecare staff have become full partners with our family in our efforts to enhance the quality of Lisa’s care. A good example is the way the caregivers inspire Lisa with her daily physical exercises set up by her Physical Therapist, which are showing measurable improvement. We have found the office personnel to be courteous, quick responders and efficient administrators.
Our family is pleased to give our enthusiastic personal recommendation for Grace Care Management to anyone considering making a home care decision for their loved one. They will be in good hands!”

—Dr. Schechter, Medical Director,

“I would like to thank Grace Care Management for their caring approach and professional skill in assisting our family. As mother approaches age 90, she has required increasing levels of care management and expert interface with the medical establishment – and Grace Care has done an excellent job in both areas. One notable example: Grace Care recently arranged for mother to receive a comprehensive evaluation and course of treatment by an inter-disciplinary team of geriatric specialists at UCSD‘s Hillcrest facility, with very positive results for mother’s general health and outlook.”
—Gordon G. Kaplan, Attorney at Law
“Miracles don’t often happen, but I have seen them occur with expert professional care and a high level of interest as provided by Grace Care. Since Grace Care has provided my home care, healing has accelerated both physically and emotionally. The services they have advocated have been outstanding and validated by my continuing ability to recover at home with feelings of certainty and security. Their consultation has been personal and caring, providing new and deeper understanding of methods of getting well. I will soon be ready to continue my life independently thanks to their supervision.”
—G. Kenneth Vincent, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
“I have known Cindy Hasz and her care management company, Grace Care Management for over 8 ½ years. Grace Care Management and Rays of Hope have successfully coordinated and provided a high quality level of service that is individualized and specially designed to meet each client’s individual needs. Grace Care has over and over demonstrated excellence in the care management and caregiver provision of service in the community. Clients and families express a high level of satisfaction as they often go above and beyond the standard in other organizations.”
—Vivienne Bennett, Professor, CSUSM
“I have been a practicing Internist in the North San Diego County area for nearly 30 years. In that time, I have had the pleasure, and unfortunate frequent displeasure, to work with a number of different home care agencies and other providers of care to my patients. Grace Care Management has constantly proven themselves the best of the bunch. Their attention to detail and appropriate continuity of care has not only pleased my patients, but they have also exceeded the standard of care and have accomplished what few such agencies are capable of achieving- added benefit to the patient and improvement in their health care and quality of life.
It is always a pleasure and easy decision to include Grace Care in my patient’s lives. Everyone wins and the degree of communication is just right and always focused appropriately on the real issues at play, regardless of the personality of the patient or their unique and frequently complicated medical situations.
They are the elite ‘concierge’ home care provider my patients deserve and reliably benefit from on a daily basis.”
