We have been clients
of The Next Horizon for four years and continue to use Brenda and
her staff for resources or when we need referrals for geriatric
dentists, physicians and other healthcare issues. What we like about
The Next Horizon is they respond quickly, keep your informed of
updated information on senior issues or changes with Medicare/Medicaid.
Brenda referred us to an expert who specializes in Medicaid and
helped us to qualify for the Medicaid program. We highly recommend
to anyone to put their trust with Brenda and her staff. They go
above and beyond anyone’s expectations to provide the best care and
Frank (87 yrs old)
The Next Horizon’s staff
and owner went above and beyond to help me and my family located
an Apartment complex close to the military medical hospital (Brooke
Army Medical Hospital) and helped us work with the Apt. manager
and owners to modify the bathroom for wheelchair accessibility.
Brenda came out on weekends and devoted her personal time making
sure we had everything in place – from hiring movers, a caregiver
helping me when my wife was out of town and even driving me to my
appointments. We would never use anyone else but The Next Horizon,
Senior/Military Locator. Brenda, being a military wife, understands
military families issues and concerns! Thank you!!
Gary, 2nd Lt. US Army
contacted The Next Horizon picking up her brochure at my father’s
physician’s office. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer recently
and not knowing where to look for placement for Dad called Brenda.
We spoke for 30 minutes on the phone and made an appointment for
the staff to do an evaluation. Brenda, personally came out and three
hours later she had recommended several options along with contacting
an Elder Attorney to set up Medical Power of Attorney. My father
had his Will and Financial/Asets set up several years ago. We are
now touring several Residential Care Homes (RCH) and one Alzheimer
facility. What I like most about Brenda and her staff is they genuinely
care about my father’s condition, overall health care and progression
of this disease. She recommended several RCH homes and a lovely
facility that will meet all of his needs now and in the forthcoming
months. She has set up the tours and within a week or so we will
make our decision. I have recommended The Next Horizon to my co-workers
who are dealing with similar situations with their parents. Brenda
and staff are #1 in my book!
John and Susan
After doing extensive
research looking for someone who could help me with Aid & Attendance
(how to qualify and apply), and finding a good home for my husband
(retired military) who has Alzheimer, The Next Horizon was highly
recommended by another good source. Brenda was professional, understanding
and compassionate. She spent several hours with us by listening
and then making some recommendations. Brenda is knowledgeable in
the Aid & Attendance program and walked us through the process.
She also put us in touch with one of her attorneys who is certified
in the knowledge of Aid & Attendance. A free one hour consultation
he provided and reviewed our paperwork so we could move forward.
Brenda is always following up with us (during and after placement)
and does her research well. My husband is now in a private Residential
Care Home with the best care and love that has made this transition
easier for all of us. We have recommended Brenda to others in our
church. Brenda is the best!
Carol Anne, Boerne, TX
Best company working
with seniors, military and their families is The Next Horizon. Contacted
Brenda online and has been a wonderful help in educating me about
my mother’s higher level of care and making the best recommendation
for placement and referring a Geriatric Physician. Brenda educated
me about Dementia and level of care for my mother who needs more
personal attention. Brenda toured several residential care homes
before we toured together. She met my mother and did her assessment
with the recommendations. Currently, my mother has been neglected
with her personal care and removal was immediate. Mother is very
happy in her new environment and personal 24/7 care. Highly recommended
The Next Horizon to friends and my church members.
I am retired military
of 20 years and was recommended to contact The Next Horizon and
ask for the owner, Brenda. We scheduled an appointment and talk
about knowing the senior industry and the contacts she has overwhelmed
me. Brenda is very knowledgeable and offers many suggestions that
meets your living style and healthcare needs for now but also for
the future. We toured several communities and then she suggested
I have a Caregiver agency come to my Apartment for a few months
until I was ready to make a commitment to move. After three months,
I contacted Brenda and she had her resources available for me to
contact and we toured several communities. Brenda also helped me
to contact a certain department at the VA in San Antonio, Texas
and now I am registered in the VA system. As of the end of May,
Brenda had me settled in the “right” community where I there are
quite a few retired military spouses and couples. Brenda spends
as much time with you as needed and follows up – quite the Advocate…..She
is a Blessing and has a warm heart and a loving attitude working
with Seniors and Military families. (Brenda is a military spouse
herself so she can relate to our needs). If you need anything or
just advice, contact The Next Horizon – Brenda is the best!!
What sets Brenda above the crowd is that she follows up on every call and stays right with you through the process until mission is complete and successful. In today’s business environment, there are so many people who will not follow up which can elevate the stress level. That’s not an item with Brenda. Additionally, she knows the ins and outs of the assisted living and independent living industry. Should a facility fail to deliver, she looks into the matter and works toward getting it resolved. I recommended Brenda for senior living placement services!RobertFounder, Brenda Dever-Armstrong
