Introducing Our Team

Each member of our team has been personally touched by issues related to nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities.  That's why we fight so hard to help other seniors and their families so that no other family has to endure the same amount of pain.

Co-Founder

Vivian Zayas

Vivian Zayas, lost her mother Ana Martinez while receiving care at Our Lady of Consolation in West Islip, NY.  What was supposed to be a 3 to 4 week say was prolonged while waiting for more home care options.  The loss of her mother has spurred her to pursue the protection of other vulnerable seniors in her mothers honor.
