What is an Adult Planning Specialist?

An Adult Planning Specialist assists older adults and their families to reach their maximum potential quality of life. Independence is encouraged while not sacrificing safety or security. The approach is holistic (medical, financial, legal, etc.)  and client-centered (making an appropriate plan WITH you, not for you). Ensuring quality care and optimal life for those you love reduces worry, stress and time off of work for caregivers. Adult Planning Specialists envision a world where people and their families live well as the face the challenges of aging and/or medical need.


In summary, it is helping your loved ones have the most meaningful life they can, whatever stage of life they are in, so that all of you can rest more easily.

Why should I choose Help for Healing?

My name is Darcy Thiel. I use my professional and personal experience to assist others in creating the life they hope for as time marches on. I was an advocate for my father, who had Parkinsons, for over a decade and assisted him with several transitions over the years. Being by my husband’s side on his journey with a terminal illness and ultimately his death, was the most sacred experience of my life.


It is my passionate goal to help you and/or your loved ones with the same compassion and dedication as if you were my own family. From facilitating problem solving session for family management to attending medical appointments, I am accessible and knowledgeable to create a customized plan for your needs. My promise is to treat all of you with the dignity and respect you deserve and offer the personal touch that is so often lacking in our current medical system.


I will exceed your expectations!
