For McKnight’s LTC News Column,
“The World According to Dr. El”
"Eleanor offered compassionate, knowing, and tender advice. It was as though she was a sister, friend, psychologist, and nurse wrapped into one nice package helping me and my siblings to navigate these difficult waters of aging parents."
From Jan G., family member
"You are my strength." "I don't know what I'd do without you." "Just thinking about you, I feel better."
