This philosophy of care has made her is a valuable family resource and a highly requested speaker on care choices for seniors.

Mary Winners feels strongly about individuals planning for their future care, regardless of age. A plan becomes a gift that individuals present to their family. There is a sense of fulfillment for adult children to know that they are carrying out the wishes of their parents. Planning also provides empowerment and takes a bit of crisis out of the care situation. When families have choices, when they have a plan in place, the senior ultimately receives quality of life.
