My wife Lisa and I have lived in the Boston area our entire lives. I spent 25 years in the financial industry working with many wonderful, caring people. My wife Lisa is a Registered Nurse at Newton Wellesley Hospital. Together, we make a great team.

For the past several years, my siblings and I have been caring for my mom who is 91. Up until recently, she was active and independent — painting her house, cooking up a storm, and vacationing with friends. After a recent hip surgery, things started to change, whether that was her ability to drive or simply remember our nightly call. I’d get off the phone with her only to hear it ring again in a few minutes.

As you’ve probably experienced yourselves, it’s an emotional experience to watch your parents age. All any family wants to do is make this transition as loving and dignified as possible. With my mother, deciding it was time for a nursing home was hard enough. Choosing which nursing home was even harder. It’s a daunting and emotionally trying process, especially when there’s such a lack of options or advice.

After struggling through the process with my own mother, I knew there had to be a better way. My goal with Oasis is to assist families in this process and be as compassionate as possible. I want to let them know, to let you know, that you’re not alone. There’s a perfect place out there – a great match that will allow your loved one to receive the best care and quality of life.
