Success Stories

“Brian made a stressful transition very easy. He is extremely kind and helpful with the ability to make people feel welcome and accepted. Brian went out of his way on multiple occasions to address concerns and was always transparent and genuine with his responses.”

“There are few decisions more important and stressful than providing safety and comfort for an elderly parent or loved one. If home cannot be made safe, or greater care is required, families must consider alternatives. For families who don’t have experience or familiarity with available resources, it is a great relief to find dependable, knowledgeable help. Brian Hauenstein provided us with information and choices that were extremely helpful and timely.”

“A few years ago, my son-in-law called my wife and I very frustrated with the fact that he had been trying to find mental health support for his mom who was having real problems. He had been on the phone and visited places for almost a week with little results. He called us out of pure frustration. Not knowing where to turn, I thought of my friend Margaret Howard who worked for HOSPICE OF MICHIGAN and I thought she might be familiar with these problems. Within a couple of minutes of talking to her and explaining the problem, she came up with several venues that might help. Most important, she gave us a name and contact office at Mercy Health St. Mary’s that immediately went to work on the problem. By that evening, Mom was in St. Mary’s receiving the help and support she desperately needed. Without Margaret’s help, who knows how long she would have been waiting. We owe a BIG debt of gratitude to Margaret.”

“We would both whole-heartedly, unequivocally recommend Dave and Mary Mapes – their knowledge and experience make them the best realtors we have ever met. They really complement each other with their knowledge and skills.”

“Thanks to everyone at Emmanuel Hospice for your great care of my husband. He was a "great guy" who will live on in my heart forever. Now he is in Heaven with Jesus! The outpouring of caring and professional attention given was beyond my expectations. Thank you all! God's blessings to you all and know you all truly make a difference in people's lives.”
