“I’ve only dealt with one office but without their help I would have had a nervous breakdown. We were helped to get everything back on track. I really could not have coped without the help we got from there. 100% happy with service from there.”

 “I think my advocate is a very kind and considerate person. She was a great help to me, especially under certain circumstances. She is a great person that I have recommended to other people. I cannot thank her enough.”

“The service I’ve received has been supportive and informative. I really can’t explain how valuable this service has been and how much we appreciate what GdA has done for us.”

 “Not sure about the other GdA staff members, if they are as good as the one I got, then GdA has a great team.”

 “My advocate was very helpful and went out of her way to help me and took a lot of stress off me in a time of need. I have and will, continue to recommend her services to friends and family.”
