February 6, 2018 To Whom It May Concern, It is a privilege to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Beth Dow. I have known Beth for more than 12 years and initially met her in 2006 when I served as Marketing Coordinator for Vernon Woods Retirement Community in LaGrange, Georgia. She was the owner of an up-and-coming franchise – Home Helpers of Georgia and Alabama – and was placing caregivers into our community to assist with our independent and assisted living residents. Her professionalism and knowledge of the senior living industry were two of the immediate characteristics of Beth that made my job much easier. The more I got to know Beth in that specific capacity, the more I realized her expertise in understanding and implementing state and federal elder law and procedures. Through the years while at Vernon Woods, I have been involved with resident meetings and care plans which Beth was a part of. In addition, I have attended her caregiving and Dealing With Dementia seminars. Each time I walked away with a growing respect for her ability to relate to families, residents and the senior healthcare industry. I left Vernon Woods Retirement Community and became Executive Director at Benton House Senior Living Community in 2015. It was comforting as an Executive Director that I could call on Beth and her company at a moment’s notice when caregiving situations would arise at Benton House. Her willingness to accommodate our residents also showed me the compassion she has for the senior generation and their well-being. In the spring of 2016, I found myself unemployed due to an ownership/management change at Benton House. That was a difficult and almost desperate time for me not being involved in the senior industry that I so love. It was during this time that Beth reached out to me and brought me on board as a community liaison with Home Helpers. Her guidance and leadership of the company, plus her advice to me on networking with various medical and senior living administrators help spur me from a part-time representative of Home Helpers to now a full-time Community Relations Director. I’m not sure that I’ve met anyone in my 18 years in senior living that has the comprehension and mastery of elder law and regulations, as well as the dedication and passion for caregiving. She is a wonderful speaker on subjects in the senior living world and I would highly recommend her seminars to anyone wishing to better understand the issues that industry struggles with daily. If you have any questions regarding Beth Dow, please to do hesitate to contact me at kathyh.homehelpers@ gmail.com. Sincerely, Kathy Howard Community Relations Home Helpers of Georgia and Alabama Phone: 404-993-1147 Email: kathyh.homehelpers@gmail.com
