WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING....
We have had quite a ride. You were a great student then a fantastic faculty. Thank you for your love and support. I will definitely stay in touch. Know that you are a special friend to me and I will remain ready to be there for you.
—Charlie Marcantonio, Montgomery College, Head of Mental Health Program
I have been delighted to read your recent progress notes for (our client)! Last fall she could not walk out of her apartment with me to put the garbage in the trash room just outside of her apartment without a major anxiety episode. I know that she has had changes to her medication which are helping her come out of this major depressive episode. However, I do believe that a huge part of her progress has been the work that you have done with her each week. The work has required consistency, patience, firmness and an element of cheer leading from you to help her take those small steps which have added up to huge progress. It was hard to imagine last fall that she had the ability to make this kind of changes in her life. I just wanted to recognize the work that you have done with her that has been so successful! Good job!"

"I have found Beth Albaneze extremely helpful in figuring out the level of care the person needs. I have referred several pts to her and her team, always found the perfect match. Her "organizers team" is efficient yet empathic.
Patrizia Pallaro, LCMFT, BC-DMT
"Hi Beth, I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to work at House Calls. This experience has taught to be a better a social worker, and your guidance has been so appreciated. Thank you for being such a great teacher, and mentor. I hope we can work together in the future."
"Nelljean, Congratulations on a job well done! You were instrumental in helping her with her anxiety and depression. I am glad she is feeling better."

"Hi Norah and everyone, I hope you all are doing well. Someone on the listserv recently suggested I look into this organization called "House calls" and I wanted to share what I found out. I've gotten excited about collaborating with them.
They offer some great wraparound, in-home support for clients (and families) who need more than therapy once a week. It looks like they cover a wide variety of needs and they go to the client's home to offer hands on support... they can help by being a case manager, doing recreational therapy with teens, parent coaching, help with hoarding (this one I'm especially excited about for clients that I work with), elder care, help making decisions with elder care, etc... It looks like clients pay out-of-pocket, although the organization does collaborate with some interns who do work at a reduced fee.
Well, that's about all I know. I only recently connected with them and I wanted to spread the word. Their website is https://housecallstotalwellness.com/
Hope everyone's well, take good care,"
I don’t think I’ve thanked YOU enough for trusting me with your fragile clients and for giving me the opportunity to work with them. Who else can say they were working for someone whom they’ve known for nearly 60 years! You have always shared your confidence in me, even when I doubted it, and showered me with praise above and beyond the value of my work. You have been a role model in so many ways – especially in the past eight years by building and running a thriving and successful business from the ground up. And making the lives of so very many people livable again!

Beth's extensive network of contacts and the research she did for the areas in which we had the greatest need yielded the right care for mom as her needs changed over time.
