I have known Christine Hollan for over fifty years. We have served together as volunteers in many charitable organizations. She is dedicated to any project she takes on and completes all tasks beyond expectations.
Christine has worked with Hospice for over 20 years, serving as vice-president and Regional Manager. She is now the owner of Golden Age Senior Placement and has been a true blessing to all those she has served.
Christine Hollan is an asset to our community and to any organization with which she affiliates. She is hardworking and sees all projects to the end. Her character is above reproach.
Dear Sir or Madame,
In a professional relationship spanning 10 years, I can attest to Christine Hollan with Golden Age Senior Placement Services and her ability to complete and exceed all expectations for both the patients she places and the facilities she works with.
Christine masterfully balances the pressing requirements of families seeking placements with their need for time to make an informed decision. Her character and work ethic earns the trust of the families she works with and the confidence of the facilities she represents.
My partnership with Christine Hollan at Golden Age Placement Services is exemplary and a model to which I would like all placement agencies to aspire.

Dear Christine and Jim,
Thank you so much for being you and for doing what you do to help families preserve dignity and make positive memories while experiencing difficult circumstances associated with the end of life. My husband who had lived a happy, active, and productive life with coronary artery disease and mild heart failure for over 30 years was diagnosed with end-stage heart failure at the end of last year. We found ourselves in almost constant turmoil trying to keep pace with changes in his health status. There seemed to be no environment appropriately equipped to address his needs. Over the course of five and a half months, he was hospitalized at least 8 times with a few weeks at home with intensive home health supervision or in one of four different rehabilitation facilities. We met wonderful, caring people during each of those experiences. However, when my husband was not sick enough to warrant hospitalization, he was too sick and unstable to be an appropriate candidate for rehabilitation or home care. Despite dedicated assistance from social workers and case managers, we were not able to find an environment where we could preserve dignity and safely address our unique and difficult circumstances until we found Golden Age Senior Placement.
I am a nurse with multiple degrees in the field and a long career with varied experience but found myself in a very personal situation for which the education and experiences had not prepared me. There are many trained professionals and there is an abundance of information available offering suggestions and generalized information to use as a practical guide in locating and selecting nursing homes, rehabilitation, or long-term care facilities. Those resources may be very helpful for families with simple and uncomplicated issues. I needed to have someone, like you and Jim, who could walk with me through the process of identifying our specific problems then locating and visiting facilities that were best equipped to address those issues.
You recognized and understood the uniqueness of our circumstances. You indeed, learned our standards and values as you helped us identify the living arrangements that would best meet our needs. You provided us with the most essential, customized level of support that facilitated our decision making. Ultimately, with great care and compassion you guided and supported me in selecting the place where my husband and I could feel safe, welcomed, cared for, respected and where we were able to do the work necessary for us to say our final goodbyes.
I will be eternally grateful for your support and caring. Thank you.

I have had the pleasure of working with Christine both directly and indirectly for over 5 years. During Christine’s years as a Regional Sales Manager, her tremendous leadership abilities never ceased to amaze me.
Christine’s adaptability with her customers, employees, and patients is only the beginning of why she has been so successful. I feel what makes Christine the most successful is her caring attitude and incredible work ethic. When a patient or employee had needs that had to be met there was no time clock that Christine would follow. Her leadership qualities were shown by example.
Christine has an extensive network in the community that she taps into daily. Another exceptional quality of Christine is her volunteerism. I am always in awe of her drive to be the best not only on the job but also in her commitment to the community and their needs.
With her abilities, adaptability, and dedication Christine is an asset to any team. I have no doubts that you will be exceptionally pleased with her abilities.
Christine Hollan's caring and knowledgeable assistance during the final months for both my parents was invaluable and always comforting.
Her vast experience of over 20 years was evident in her guidance and compassion throughout my journey with my parents. Even though she was in management with her company and always busy, she was always available and responsive. Her patients are always her priority.
I can not imagine these challenges in my life without having someone like Mrs. Hollan by your side.

I thank you, Christine Hollan! For the support and the loving, caring, and helping find Heritage Memory Care for My Mother.
I highly recommend Christine's placement service, Golden Age Senior Placement. She found my sister an excellent, caring personal care home that met her stated budget. We couldn't be more pleased. In addition, Christine connected us to a hospice care service which is covered by my sister's health insurance plan. We are also very happy with that service.
Thank you, Christine!
