Quality of Life Resource Specialists helps families in time of need
Margo Williams offers a simple message for people in the midst of a new medical diagnosis, decision-making for appropriate care, or just in need of support and direction: “You are not alone.”
In the Prescott Woman Magazine April/May issue, Margo shared her personal experience about her grandmother’s and mother’s struggles with Alzheimer’s disease. Because of this experience, she understands the roller coaster these challenges take you on. She understands how difficult it is to ask for help; to be vulnerable and depend on others.
Margo’s mom “Marmie” (her endearing name for her) was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2015. “ It seemed like all my knowledge and strength were gone in an instant,” Margo recalled. “Yet, I remember thinking, ‘You are going to be okay. God has been preparing you for this your whole life.’”
As time went on, her family needed more help. Margo realized, in one of her darkest moments, that she couldn’t do it on her own. She picked up the phone and reached out to professionals, extended family, friends, and support groups for help. Having this support has enabled everyone in her family to be more present with their mom and cherish the moments they have together.
Because of her own experience, Margo’s team knows how to “ease the uneasiness” when it comes to asking for help, sorting through the muck, dealing with difficult decisions, and making the best choices for day-to-day quality of life. She and her team coordinate and advocate for the appropriate care for each individual with whom they work.
Margo’s prior work as an ombudsman (patient/resident advocate for assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities) meant she saw hundreds of individuals and families overwhelmed and struggling with decisions, many times unaware of the options and resources available to them.
Now, as the founder of Quality of Life Resource Specialists, Margo is the person who gets the call from family members in need. She has formed a team of elite professionals built to support her passion, “her calling,” to educate, support, and care for individuals and families facing the challenges that threaten to overwhelm.
