  1. We’re available 24/7, so you don't have to be.
  2. Next time you want to hang up on your mother, you can tell her to call us.
  3. Your dad can't push our buttons.
  4. We've helped hundreds of families a lot worse than yours.
  5. We can tell your annoying sibling to shut up, but graciously.
  6. We can make your parents hear what you have said over and over again, but they refuse to listen because to them, you are still a child.
  7. We can give you the scoop on which nursing home is really right for your parents.
  8. We're much cheaper than the cost of plane fare if you have to fly into town when your parents say “everything is fine” but you know it isn't.
  9. We know how to get around that “I'm saving for a rainy day” syndrome, when your folks are drowning in their problems.
  10. We can do in 2 hours what is would take you 2 weeks to do.
