Why Marca Care?
We first met 90 year old Leslie at a nursing home. Battling multiple chronic conditions, she needed an experienced advocate to get her home. Leslie’s family was overwhelmed and reached out for our help after a medical complication almost destroyed her kidneys.

Even with the best intentions, families often don’t have the knowledge to help their loved ones. Leslie was shuffled from facility to facility and doctor to doctor. Leslie needed the guidance of
MarcaŽ Life Planning to navigate her way.

According to Leslie, she was put on Earth ‘to care and nurture others.’ Our geriatric care managers gladly took over the roles of advocate and cheerleader when Leslie needed someone to care for her.
