|04/15/2019||I am working with Farah Ali from the WPB Area Agency on Aging office trying to get services for my aging adult brother with disabilities, I am dealing with doctors, doctor offices, hospitals, and Farah has been the most professional and compassionate person I have dealt with through this process. Her dependability, through follow up and attention to detail has surpassed all others in this process. I work two jobs, and have little time to make phone calls over and over. Our family is so greatful for her help and understanding. We are still in the process of obtaining the needed services but just wanted to thank your agency for positioning such a professional to help families struggling with the tremendous challenges such as ours.
Sincerely, ~ Ann Marie

|05/09/2019||I have been enthralled and a fan of ADRC for over 20 years--when I first got into the senior living/geriatric health care industry and learned of its existence. The amazing programs and services it provides the deserving residents of Florida who would otherwise be without its guidance and resources are all made possible by this organization and its unwavering team of people who show up there every day to make it all possible. I tell everyone every day, and have for as long as I can remember, to make 561 684-5885 the first number they dial when they need help and don't know who else to call. The people on the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council are all outstanding in their own jobs--and then donate their time and efforts to help make ADRC a beacon of light to those in need. I'm proud of each and every one. ~ Carole|
|05/14/2019||Rosa Bruno was excellent and very professional. She answered all my questions and concerns. However, not only did she answer me in fast courteous way, she did exactly what she said she would do and she emailed to DCF the information that was needed to complete the Medicaid file for my client. She is a super nice lady. ~ Brigitte|
|05/16/2019||Farah Ali - Professional, patient, knowledgeable and kind. ~ JoAnne|
|06/17/2019||Farah Ali is the most quintessential definition on every level of some one you would be lucky enough to know anytime in life. Had I not had the fortune to reach her on the telephone when I did I am sure I would still be chasing my tail. Farah saved my neighbor for whom I am POA of from continued and steady descent into financial devastation. Taking into account the above comments this woman is humble. Farah actually gave me the credit for all MY hard work? When do you hear that? She actually sent me an additional email to let me know the best day to fill out the form. That has never been my experience with a civil service worker and sadder few others as well.
Thank you state and I am requesting she be cloned to any state job that answers a telephone.
Thank you Farah and God bless you and your family. ~ Jo Anne

|09/27/2019||After receiving various notifications/options regarding healthcare coverage and changes from different agencies. I was feeling overwhelmed, A person from the SSA recommended I contact the Shine Agency where I spoke to a referral specialist Bricia Aguilar from ADRC. She was knowledgeable, patient, and reasurreing. She set up appointments and advised me on next steps. I cannot tell you how much she helped me and already I am feeling less stressed. Thank you ~ Valerie|

Debbie Sanchez met me at my fathers assisted living and was so helpful and kind I couldn't be any happier with the service. ~ Alicia|
|10/24/2019||I appreciate the timely manner my mother’s Medicaid information was sent to us. After filling out the paperwork Saintanise Eloisin kept in contact to ensure I had all info required turned in to her office. She helped make the process a smooth one. Knowing that my mother’s Medicaid will be taken care of is very important to her and our family.
