Finding Sarah Ordover was an incredible stroke of luck! We were looking for a place for mom and it's not an easy task - don't let anyone tell you it is. There are lots of places and lots of things to consider and so many questions to ask. We started out on our own and it was just a daunting experience. But when we discovered Sarah, everything fell into place.
