    Happy Client
  • Trovato, LLC provides the type of services that every family dealing with dementia needs. I only wish I had discovered the company seven years ago when my mother was first diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Trovato, LLC has helped me navigate the very stressful and difficult world of caring for a parent with Alzheimer's.
    Happy Client
  • It was truly inspiring to see the hands on approach that Mikki had with the residents. It was helpful and it showed us techniques to try. Mikki’s trainings gave me a better understanding of dementia. I learned tools like redirection, validation, and live in their reality. These tools made my job easier because I was able to better help the residents and work with them, rather than against them.  Understanding dementia and how to provide more efficient care were assets that helped me to feel more confident in my job.  Overall I felt more supported and happier at my job because I felt confident and I had all the tools to give the best quality care. I would highly recommend Mikki’s coaching style. I have a passion for helping people living with dementia and I am incredibly thankful to Mikki for the knowledge and tools she has given me that helped me to feel empowered and grow in my career.

  • I had a new resident come to our Assisted Living Facility that was very challenging with aggressive behaviors and agitation.  Mikki spent a lot of time observing the resident in her new home, and the staff’s interaction with the resident.  After observing and coordinating with the nursing staff; Mikki began coaching our staff on different ways to respond and divert our resident while maintaining her individual needs.  I was absolutely shocked that after two weeks, our resident’s behaviors have become completely managed!  She is thriving at her new home, and our staff has learned valuable skills that they can implement with our other residents.  I now recommend Trovato to our families that are struggling with loved ones.
    Atta Cucina, RN Director of Nursing, Larmax Homes
  • I have known Mikki for years. Her dedication and love for helping those dealing with loved ones with dementia is unmatched. Since moving out of state Mikki has helped me via phone regarding a loved one and I couldn’t be any happier. She’s calming, informative and patient. It’s nice to know she’s a phone call away willing to answer any questions at any time.

I can't express my gratitude that I have for your compassion, patience, and understanding during this challenging time in life for myself, my dad, and my siblings.

Your company is making this difficult time that much easier and more manageable and my family thanks you to the moon and back!!

    Mary Chaput Program Director, Anne Arundel County Area Agency on Aging
  • My parents live in Austin...I live here in the Washington DC area, so when my father started displaying signs of dementia, it was a challenge I did not plan to face. Watching my father decline was hard, but watching my mother refuse to accept his condition and seek professional help was harder. My wife and I were fortunate to attend a seminar taught by Ms. Mikki Firor, a Gerontologist here in the DC area. Finding professional consulting help, to figure out how to navigate this life stage, was Exactly what we needed. Mikki accepted us as clients, and over a two years period, she helped us think through how the get all the siblings aligned and how to help my mother gain more information about the stages and progress of dementia. Mikki even agreed to fly out to meet with my mother in Texas, And she built a rapport with her. After my father’s third hospitalization, and after two years of consulting assistance, my mother accepted the truth. Even after We moved him Into a memory care unit, Mikki still helped my mother deal with the transition. Having an outside professional really made the difference!! I would 100% recommend Trovato LLC if you are at that life stage with aging parents. Don’t walk the path alone when you could have help along the way!!
