    After I was forced to take legal action against my mom’s power of attorney (my sister), my lawyer recommended Danica and Advocates for the Aging as my mom’s guardian. At first, I was skeptical. Danica and mom’s caseworker, Taylor, have been nothing short of amazing. I was able to work with them to make sure my mom was treated properly. They were easy to contact and they were always willing to assist me with my concerns. Sadly, my mom passed away last month. Thank you Taylor and Danica for looking out for our best interests.

    I have been taking care of my late mother’s personal and financial affairs for the past few years. A few months ago, Mom suffered a fall and injured herself to the extent that she never fully recovered. Between the hospital, physical rehabilitation facility, and assisted living during COVID19 in which I couldn’t see her, and dealing with medical personnel, trying to understand medical insurance and paying her bills, there was a lot for me to do. I was close to the end of my rope stress-wise when I found out about Advocates for the Aging. I learned they could help me with some of these tasks that children of older parents have to deal with it. You don’t have to go it alone! They were there when I really needed help and I and will always appreciate that. We lost Mom not long after she was moved to a new assisted living home, but I think with the help of Advocates for the Aging, the transition was made much easier for all involved, and Mom finally found relaxation, peace, and contentment.

    Advocates for the Aging was the best decision I made to help care for my aging Father with complicated medical problems and a little stubbornness! Outstanding people that really cared. I trusted their advice, support, and decision-making without questions. When Dad had problems, they often beat me to the hospital. I could always rely on them.

    Danica, I just wanted to thank you for all you did for us. From the first day I met you at the facility where my mom was, I knew what a kind of person you were and that you were the right person for the job!!! It takes a SPECIAL person to do what you do. You are truly a guardian angel to watch over these people as you do. It means a lot to families that they can have trust in you and your employees from your secretary to your case managers.

    I have known Danica for years and personally observed her service in guardianship cases. I can attest that her knowledge and service place her among the very best of those professional guardians practicing in Brevard County. Danica and her team are kind and caring, efficient, organized, and skilled in the practice, and the depth of their knowledge and experiences creates the opportunity for creative problem-solving, and often, problem-prevention. I have the highest regard for Danica and her team.

    My mother’s guardian, Danica, literally saved our mother’s life and did what she could to help our family heal from the psychological, emotional and financial abuse one member of the family was inflicting on our mother. Ms. Scuderi and her team abide by the highest ethical standards and even though those standards can sometimes be inconvenient (and will certainly cause people who are trying to exploit an elder to stomp their feet and make false accusations) you will be grateful that you have such a trustworthy guardian in place. Ms. Scuderi is both warm and caring as well as tough and uncompromising when that is called for. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Our mother would have died an angry, bitter old woman were it not for Advocates for the Aging. Their intervention has led to our mother returning to her true, good-natured and loving self. There is no easy way to end one’s life, but Danica and her team have made my Mom’s end-of-life scenario as happy and comfortable as it is possible to be.

    As the owner of a home health agency, of paramount importance to our operation, is integrity, that of our employees and the people with whom we share business opportunities. Our agency has been a provider of services for Danica and Advocates for the Aging for nearly all of the 9 years we have been in business. Danica and her staff are extremely knowledgeable of the regulations as they apply to their specific expertise, they are experienced and insightful in dealing with issues, and they are also passionate, yet compassionate in handling their clients on a daily basis. We have worked with other guardians in the area and find that Advocates for the Aging and specifically, Danica, are most congruent in a high level of ethical and professional standards. I would heartily recommend Advocates for the Aging and owner, Danica.

    Advocates for the Aging is one of the most responsive, caring, and appropriate elder care service providers our office has had the pleasure to work with. Danica Scuderi is the heart and soul of AFTA. Ms. Scuderi truly has a calling to assist the elderly in any facet of care needed whether it is a geriatric care assessment or all the way to being the professional guardian. Our firm has always been able to rely on AFTA to quickly and accurately assess the situation with an elderly person. We highly recommend AFTA for any situation you encounter with an elderly citizen.

    I am my father’s guardian but am 1900 miles away. I needed someone I could trust and depend on to mediate my father’s healthcare needs. Advocates for the Aging have far exceeded expectations. They are also quick to respond and caring. They sincerely care about my father. They intervene with hospitalization and share extensive history and experience to ensure quality care. I highly recommend Advocates for the Aging. You can’t go wrong with these folks. They are a first-class organization.
