Lili Fiore is an excellent resource for you and your family members. She has a very deep understanding of focusing on your mental health and holistic needs, not only physical needs as we enter the later years in our life. I consulted with Lili when both of my parents became ill. I live on the west coast, and both my parents lived on the east coast. With both I had to travel back and forth many times, over a few short months from the beginning to the end of their illnesses. Not so easy as a single parent, as I had to manage care for my children while I was away and juggle my responsibilities at work.
Both were misdiagnosed with non- life-threatening issues, which in both cases eventually were the cause of their death. I was the lead caregiver for our father. I had to make the difficult decisions and dealt with doctors to take him off life support. In parallel I had to make funeral and burial arrangements, figure out how to vacate his home of all his belongings, return his leased car and so much more. This was so very difficult to take care of. I didn’t know where to begin and Lili reminded me that if I am not caring for myself, then I cannot care for my dad and his estate. On occasion she would walk me through the steps because I would get anxious and flustered. She really was my saving grace as I had to go through this process. She was able to help me think through the decision making on how to handle the end-of-life decisions for my father.
The following year it was my mom’s turn. Fortunately, my sister who lives near our mom was the primary caregiver the later days of her life. Again, there was lots of travel and juggling of my kids and my job, as my mom declined. Talking to Lili gave me perspective. She can explain to you and remind you that spiritually my folks were in a better place, and no longer suffering. None of this was easy but Lili’s guidance and support allowed me to accept their passing and provide support for my other family members including my sister who was my mother’s closest child. Thank you, Lili, for your unwavering support over the years. I am forever grateful.
