Margot was really great to work with. My mom is so overwhelmed with all of the issues and decisions about my dad’s memory care and end of life needs. It’s very hard to know what information and resources are reliable and who to trust when it come to choosing caregivers. To have someone as experienced, knowledgeable and empathetic as Margot to guide these difficult decisions and come up with practical strategies for optimal care is a big relief to the whole family.
“Navigating the world of elder care for an aging parent with complex medical needs is one of the most challenging endeavors I have ever experienced… Margot has already impressed me as a clear expert in the field and as someone who is helpful, knowledgeable and kind. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found her services and I look forward to utilizing her help and expertise as I continue down this difficult road.”
Margot was incredibly skillful, empathetic, and got right to the heart of what my grandmother’s highest wants and needs were. She turned what felt like a black and white decision into a nuanced conversation centered around the needs of everyone. She provided insights based on her expertise and experience in the field that we would not have thought about, without being prescriptive. Highly recommend if you are considering how to support an elder in your family/life/community as their care needs change.
I have collaborated with Margot Nijsure concerning sensitive decisions for families and aging loved ones. In all instances, Margot’s professional recommendations and caring approach guides clients through all options.

Margot skillfully steered me and my sisters through the labyrinth of assisted living options for our mother, leading us to make the right living decision for her during a very difficult time. I can’t tell you how glad we are to have gotten her help. Rather than being emotionally exhausted, I’m confident we got my mother on the right path, despite what could have been a very jarring life change. Thank you, Margot!
My parents are getting older and we went to Montclair Elder Services to get a consultation from Margot about how we can best keep them independent and in the home safely. She was very knowledgeable and caring and helped us prioritize what we need to do first and what the next steps are. I trusted her judgement and appreciated her candid yet caring demeanor. I highly recommend Margot and Montclair Elder Services when you need help with your aging loved ones!
