What our clients say …
I recommend Fortina Solutions with much gratitude.
“I was lucky enough to meet Allyson just as my life with my husband was changing. As he began declining, I was becoming more panicked and confused about what to do. It all seemed overwhelming. How would I get through this difficult time? I didn’t know where to start.
Friends introduced me to Allyson and her work in senior living solutions. She has a broad knowledge of the field and tremendous energy for her mission. Each time I meet with her I leave with the feeling that I am not alone in navigating this territory. What a relief! It makes such a difference to have help in traversing this new phase of aging. To have help with, not just referrals, but with asking the right questions, and finding the answer that fit my particular situation.
Allyson is warm, friendly, and caring in a way that makes the process much easier at a time when so much seems hard. It leaves me hopeful and more certain that I can find my way through these life changes.
I recommend Fortina Solutions with much gratitude.” – Louise Klok, LICSW
We are forever grateful for Fortina Solutions
“Our family recently had to come to terms with the fact that it was time to move my father into a memory care facility for the first time AND to New Mexico from Texas. The task was so daunting and overwhelming we all felt paralyzed.
From the second I explained our needs to Allyson, I saw her click into gear and she began compiling a list of solutions for us. I was touring what would be his awesome facility that very afternoon and she helped us to find money-saving opportunities as well!
Allyson is what I would term an Earth Angel with a heart of gold and the brilliance and professionalism to make magic happen. She has shown us how beautiful this stage of life with our dad can be for all of us. We are forever grateful for Fortina Solutions, highly recommending this service to anyone looking for elder care, including planning for your future!” – Ali Montgomery, daughter who helped her parents relocate from out-of-state
Compassion aligned with years of experience!
Compassion aligned with years of experience! My conversations with Allyson Nathan regarding the care of a family member have given me hope and direction. – Helen Muterperl, a family member helping long-distance
One of the most knowledgeable companies out there
“Fortina Solutions is the most ethical, compassionate, professional and knowledgeable company you can find. I needed to find care for my parents in Santa Fe while living across the country. An impossible task.
Fortina Solutions provided amazing support, despite the 2-hour time difference! Unbelievably responsive, but more importantly, one of the most knowledgeable companies out there to help you work through the best solution for your loved one.
Not an easy process but they help you work through all the options in a caring and informative way with no pressure, ever. Thank you so much for all of your help. You have no idea how grateful we are!!!” – Megan Malone, daughter helping her parents long-distance
A professional with a heart!
“Long distance daughter, first time to need assisted living services and Covid raging. Finding Allyson was the best thing that happened to us. Her knowledge and experience were very helpful and reassuring. Her advice was proactive, and she was always available to answer new questions. Based on our needs she suggested 5 places to call then helped us evaluate the pros and cons until we made a decision that worked very well for us. She is a professional with a heart!” – Deanne Williams, a daughter helping her mother from out-of-state
Allyson literally saved my dad, and me.
“Late one Friday afternoon I discovered that I had to find my 94 year-old dad alternative assisted living arrangements. The gut kick was that I only had two days to relocate him. That same afternoon I attempted to visit other facilities. Given the urgency I was, of course, unsuccessful. I was in total despair when I awoke Saturday morning.
In one of those “a friend of a friend situations” I was directed to Allyson not fully knowing her capabilities nor how, or if, she could help me. Within minutes of leaving a voice mail my call was returned. I knew from Allyson’s comforting and confident words that I was in good hands – I dared to allow myself the feeling of some relief.
Shortly after our phone conversation I was meeting Allyson, discussing my dad’s situation in depth. She met with my dad immediately forming a mutual trusting bond. Allyson then assured me that she’d find a facility for my dad. I was in awe. A total stranger fully grasped the urgency, taking control of the situation. Late Saturday afternoon Allyson called; she had secured my dad’s admission to a brand-new facility in town. Dad had his interview Sunday morning and moved in on Monday. Within 24 hours I’d gone from a dark place to one of light. Allyson literally saved my dad and me. Dad was much happier in his new place and loved Allyson as much as I do. I will forever be grateful.” – Steve Cantrell, a loving son
What professionals say …
An invaluable resource to clients who are attempting to find suitable residential placement for loved ones.
“I have been an estate planning and estate administration attorney for 30 years. I have had the opportunity to work with Allyson of Fortina Solutions on a few occasions. She has proved to be an invaluable resource to clients who are attempting to find suitable residential placement for loved ones. The entire process of finding the right memory care, assisted living, or independent living community can be daunting and overwhelming. Allyson’s passion for the services she provides, her knowledge, and her compassion for people has been demonstrated with every client I have referred. Allyson has also proved to be an invaluable resource in navigating the difficult issues and discussions with family members. It is always without hesitation that I recommend and endorse Allyson and Fortina Solutions.” – Daniel Monte, Attorney, Pregenzer, Baysinger, Wideman & Sale, PC
I used her expertise when it came to my own parents
“Allyson has been one of my highest utilized professional resources. I frequently have clients and/or their concerned family members call me requesting advice about what to do and where to turn for increasing assistance and needs. Allyson’s willingness and ability to connect people to the services and/or communities that fit their needs is INVALUABLE! She is readily available for phone calls and is willing to meet with clients and their family members expeditiously whether that be in person, by zoom or over the phone. She is flexible, knowledgeable, experienced and takes the burden of phone calls and research off of the shoulders of our clients. Of significance, Allyson does not charge clients for her senior living options and eldercare referral services.
I found Allyson’s services to be of such utility that I used her expertise when it came to my own parents needing to transition into assisted living. We are most grateful for her assistance in this daunting process! Now that my folks have formally been moved in for months, Allyson continues to call and even meet with them occasionally to keep in contact. I highly recommend her to anyone considering this transition!” – Erin Johnson, RN, BSN, Heart Failure Coordinator/Educator, Christus St. Vincent Cardiology Heart and Vascular Center and caring daughter
My go-to person for her professionalism, being a deep listener, a creative solution finder, and proactive approach

We both work in client and information sensitive arenas. I have always found Allyson to be professional and ethical as she puts the client’s best interests at the forefront. She is my go-to person whenever I need advice or guidance for senior facilities and senior care.
I highly recommend Allyson because of her professionalism and for being a deep listener, a creative solution finder, and her proactive approach to help people avoid having to make important decisions under stress. I would trust her completely with my own mother.” – Carolyn Moore, Owner/CEO, Nurses With Heart
