See what others have been saying about Arizona Care Management Solutions.
Arizona Care Management has been so essential with dealing with Mom’s struggles. I would be overwhelmed without their help. Several years ago, I moved to Cottonwood, Arizona to care for my mother who struggles with dementia and other health issues. I do not know what I would do without Arizona Care Management. They have made sure we have stayed on top of every appointment change and picked up every prescription. I struggle with bipolar disorder and they look out for me as well.
Bonnie Shimko is a very warm, competent manager with many contacts at the hospitals, and clinics. She is able to communicate clearly with physicians and nurses, much to the benefit of the client. Recently, my mother fell out of bed at the assisted living home. Bonnie called me from the emergency room where she stayed with my mother, washing the blood from her face, so that I would not be shocked when I arrived. She was a comfort to both my mother and I.
Cecelia, another care manager for Arizona Care Management, recently made sure I repeated a mammogram. The test resulted in having a biopsy done. Cecelia was so supportive. I know in my heart I would not have returned for the test without her encouraging me to do so.

You helped me with my mother. Agnes died on Christmas Day last year. Fortunately, she died at home with my sister and one of my brothers.
You were so helpful with advice and connecting us with the right professionals. My brothers and sister struggled through the dementia caring process as many families do, but we did OK primarily as a result of your help.
I just wanted you to know how appreciative we are of the work you do and for your kindness and compassion.
Happy holidays to you and yours. Thank you so much
Don Rowley and family.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you & your staff for everything that you do for dad.
It’s been 3 years since his wife died. As you know, he wanted to stay in AZ but with him approaching 100 years old, being legally blind and hard of hearing, I didn’t think it was possible. If it weren’t for the services provided by the team at Arizona Care Management, he wouldn’t be able to stay in a place that he considers home.
Aside from transporting and accompanying him to his medical & dental appointments, Marianne takes care of his weekly grocery shopping, and someone is always available to drop items off or check on him should he need anything in between.
And of course, you have also been there for the simplest of things… Like having someone pop in just to say hi, see if his living space is in order, etc.
During the pandemic, When only medical staff was allowed in his building, I appreciated that you stayed in communication with the staff … And when he actually got Covid, you stayed in touch with the administrator and the nurses to make sure his needs were being met …
and he survived Covid !
So again, I would like to thank all of you for taking care of his needs, particularly during these last 15 months. Living so far away from him is difficult, but I rest well at night knowing that dad is surrounded by caring professionals… You are truly heroes and you are all so appreciated !!
The entire team at Arizona Care Management has become like a part of our family. They’ve been with us for years as my dad’s dementia has progressed and required more care and attention. They have been great communicators and really held my hand through this whole stage of my dad’s life. Living 2 states away, they have been instrumental in keeping me informed and confident that I’ve been doing what’s in his best interests. Recently, the dementia progressed and we decided to move him to a permanent care facility which also meant selling his house. I had no idea what to do. They arranged a realtor, an estate sale, documents, procedures, everything. I was so worried and quickly found I was in even better hands than I had originally known. They took care of everything with me. I couldn’t have done this without them. They are the consummate examples of professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone who has a loved one requiring more attention than you are able to give them.

I remember listening to Bonnie at a meeting in Prescott many years ago, discussing the care of elders. I was impressed with her humor and knowledge. Many years later in 2017, I met her outside a care facility where my sister was staying. We chatted a little bit and again I was impressed with her humor, but more so her kindness. I asked her to assist me with the care of my older sister. With her help, we were able to set up a Durable Mental Health Care POA document and a Living Will document. During the Covid -19 Pandemic, Bonnie was able to get my sister a Covid test with an immediate response and thus get her into a safer environment.
During the pandemic, I was not allowed to visit with my sister, but Bonnie and her group of care managers were able to see and take care of some of her needs.
During that time, I was kept informed by her kind and friendly office help.
It has been my sincere appreciation to have association with Arizona Care Management for several years. My husband, Eldon Bills, first needed their help before he passed away in December 2018. Since then I have been the recipient of their assistance. Bonnie Shimko has been my closest contact, but I am aware that other members of the organization have shown the same regards for all their clients/patients that Bonnie has always shown my family. Love, Compassion, Caretaking Knowledge. All involved have made my life run smoother than so many other seniors I currently know here at Touchmark. I pray God will always bless their work.

The AZ Care Management Team is an awesome resource to the Verde Valley Community and more. The professional care, trust , and compassion for others shines in the support and services they provide.
I am so grateful for their ongoing communication, follow up, and truly amazing work their team provides on a consistent basis. Many times I am not sure what our community would do without them.
Thank You Bonnie, Bob, and the entire Arizona Care Management team for always going the extra step, extra mile, and extra days to provide quality excellent care management.

Arizona Care Management Solutions:
The family of Bobby Lucas thanks Arizona Care Management Solutions for the tender care they provided to our mother as she completed her journey in this life. We wanted to give our mother some of her quality of life by staying in her home at first and later in care facilities while we lived in other parts of the United States. AZCMS enabled us to do this by helping her with medications, doctor appointments, and other needs, as well as being the primary advocate when my mother found herself in the hospital.
AZCMS helped my mother transition to her new home situations, monitoring her care and treating her with respect and considerations. She always talked about how nice everyone was even though she “didn’t need help” (she did). AZCMS also gave our family professional advice based on their experience, which helped us to make decisions as a family unit, which has brought us closer together.
We appreciate AZCMS for helping our loved ones when they need it the most. Thank you!
Your help to Bob and I during his final days means so much !! Your knowledge about care facilities, your great relationships with management and caregivers, and your advocacy on behalf of Bob at all hours of the day resulted in Bob’s receiving the best care possible. In turn, knowing that he was well cared for has given me peace of mind.
Bob was able to pass away in a beautiful setting after hearing words of love from me and the rest of his family. We’re all grateful to you for your support during this journey. Bless you for the work you do and the comfort you bring.

I am writing to extend a most sincere thank you for paying forward the copy of Elizabeth Bewley’s “When I’m 94” to me in our meeting last fall. The copy has since been forwarded to my friend Susan, a vibrant 78 years young, who is assisting her sister, age 86, in locating an independent living residential location in northern Arizona. I believe that same copy will find itself being payed forward once again to others where ever it is her sister calls home in northern Arizona. I have also ordered Elizabeth Bewley’s “Killer Cure” which I am certain I will be forwarding once I share it’s contents with my friend Susan, an accomplished, now retired insurance professional and former agency owner.
After our appointment last fall, our family had suffered an unimaginable loss of our grandchild who was to be born this April, along with our daughter nearly losing her life. Needless to say, my husband of 32 years and I have made family our first and only priority for as long as we see necessary. Our other two children, who also live out of state, had close call experiences with health issues shortly after this immeasurable loss, which had us traveling extensively to each of them end of 2019. We live in gratitude today as our family comes together in healing with a hopeful trajectory forward.
Thank you once again for your generosity of spirit, your willingness to serve, your interest in furthering wellness among those who have lived independently, and served, who wish to continue to do so well into their later years, along with those who require special services as they grow toward life’s fulfillment. It was a true pleasure meeting you. I will refer others to you and Bonnie as I regularly come in contact with many in our neighborhood and community here in the Village of Oak Creek who wish to remain in their home and are rapidly approaching late 80’s and 90 year trips around the sun. May you and your family continue to be blessed in the coming year.
In Gratitude and Service,
It is somewhat uncommon for me to write business testimonials but for Arizona Care Management, I am happy to make an exception. For the record, it has been my personal experience that Bonnie Shimko and her team of senior living care professionals are fully competent and supremely dedicated to their craft. Simply put, they know their stuff and they utilize their superior knowledge to the best interest of their client’s needs as a matter of routine. Their valuable and perhaps unequalled compendium of senior care advisory services to our beloved seniors is both noteworthy and distinct – and I am happy that they chose this region to call their home. I am therefore, without hesitation, happy to provide a full endorsement of Bonnie Shimko and her team at Arizona Care Management and I highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for competent, compassioned and professional advice as it relates to on-going senior care in the Verde Valley and North Central Arizona.

I have found that the team at Arizona Care Management have been extremely helpful for my wife and I as we care for her Mother from a distance. While we wish we could be there for her it is a great comfort to know that we have a qualified resource for anything she may need. We would highly recommend Arizona Care Management to come along side anyone needing extra support as they care for aging parents or loved ones.

I cannot say enough about the services that my parents received from Arizona Care Management. Bonnie and her very capable and kind staff gave my parents a quality of life in their last four years that would not have been possible without their diligence and expertise.
Like many frustrated and anxious daughters, I was trying to take care of the parents I love from across the country. Arizona Care Management saved me many sleepless nights and assisted my parents in ways that I did not even know we were going to need. They were the height of professionalism, while at the same time making my parents feel cared for and cherished. You could not ask for more!

Thank you for all you did to ease the final month’s of Dad’s life. You were always available and ready with a plan when we had nowhere to go. Your counseling and connections made all the difference. I know there were some disagreements on how to proceed, and I hope that you know how much we valued and benefitted from your experience and connections. It was an overwhelming time and I hope that our gratitude did not get lost in the bustle of everything. Love and peace to you Bonnie – L.
