“I attended Silva’s first introductory Healthy Ageing session on Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation and loved the way she conducted the session – her presentation and delivery of the meditations. I left the workshop feeling confident in moving forward being able to deal better with stress and tension, and understanding about living in the moment. I was also delighted to receive a follow up email with notes and a recorded guided mindfulness meditation that I use every morning when I wake up. Thank you for showing me how to open my awareness and tune into the present moment.”

“I worked with Silva as her manager at Care Connect. Silva is a knowledgeable, compassionate and diligent person who approaches each individual’s situation responsibly and ethically in order to achieve the best outcomes. She has shown a great amount of skill in finding the right mix of empathy and guidance to support each person’s best interests.
I recommend her as a case manager who will support and help strengthen and empower those who are needing assistance with illness or disability and who want to achieve better health and wellbeing outcomes.”

“My mother was already receiving a Home Care Package from one provider. Then my father’s health deteriorated and he also received a Home Care Package but from a different provider. It was very frustrating because no one was communicating with anyone. As a family we had lost control over what was going on.
I contacted Kinfolk Consulting and Silva came out to meet with us. She worked with both care providers in setting up good communication channels, and left us with a solid plan in place for better managing future needs. Money well spent – I cannot thank Silva enough for the peace of mind she brought our family.”

“Thanks Silva for coming to see me to talk over the ‘how to’ of accessing care and a care provider for my nearly 95yr old mother. It really is a nightmare trying to navigate through the Aged Care government paperwork and information. Having been approved for a Level 3 Home Care Package for Mum is really just the beginning of a long journey as we now have to wait for another letter saying we’ve been ‘allocated’ a care provider. Only then can we proceed to ‘find’ a provider. All of this has been quite stressful. The details you provided to me were helpful in me being able to understand costs that (could) be involved in having Mum’s care needs met by a provider. Meeting with you a couple of times and talking over the complexities of it all has been a comfort, knowing you understand the Aged Care “speak” and are able to explain it to me. Thank you once again.”
