“Whenever we needed Katy, she was available and provided insight and direction.” – C. Davis
We were trying to pay for Care for my father and trying to navigate the Benefits he may have been eligible for. Katy came out and untangled the mess. She explained what documentation was needed for Veterans Benefit, explained what the regulations meant and submitted the paperwork for us. As we knew what to expect, the follow-up actions were expected and went smoothly. She saved me what could have been hundreds of dollars in lost work days and many hours of confused frustration.
When our family was confronted with the serious medical decline of mother, we retained Katy Spyrka to manage her medical care and finances. Her services provided the support we needed to navigate an extremely difficult situation with a sense of dignity and confidence. Katy was able to anticipate our needs and refer to professional resources as needed. She assumed the responsibility of managing our mother’s financial affairs which relieved a tremendous burden.
I was impressed with Katy’s kind, thoughtful and comprehensive management of my father’s financial and personal affairs. You clearly considered his wishes along with the realities. He was able to remain happy, engaged and safe in his final stages. He was fortunate to have someone so caring to watch out for his interests when needed.
