"Barbara Mannix combines her professionalism and well guided instincts to create an optimistic environment, where the best of all outcomes become possible, even in the most difficult of times. We learned this prior to my father's death, and continue to appreciate it now, as we move through the process of settling all of his affairs."
- Lauren Goldfish, Prescott, AZ
"I have come to rely upon Barbara Mannix and A Dignified Life as a research resource, my clearing house, for all critical issues my mother and I have encountered through our life-planning and downsizing stages."
- Christie Cortez, Balmville, NY
"Prior to learning about A Dignified Life, I was paralyzed by the stress of looking for a geriatric care manager for my parents. I just didn't know where to start. I had to take so much time off from work. Barbara Mannix found the right person, with the perfect personality, to establish the same type of trust with my parents, as we have with Barbara."
- Cheryl Cohen, Briarcliff Manor, NY
"I just needed help. The sheer volume of what needed to be done was daunting. It was too much to handle. Barbara came in and organized each task and made the execution seem easy. Before I knew it, I knew who I had to talk. My mother's personal information was organized, her apartment was cleaned out and she was safely settled in a nursing home. We could both sleep again."

"When my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease at age 75, I was at my wit’s end. I live in Cornwall, New York, and she resides in Vero Beach, Florida. Thank God that A Dignified Life was there to help me. They researched all of my options, and were able to arrange interviews with three different care-giving agencies before I flew to Florida. They were all wise choices, and each had something different to offer. Barbara Newman Mannix and A Dignified Life stayed in close touch with me throughout the process, and I am now relieved to say that the agency we hired is providing excellent care for my mother. I can't recommend them highly enough."
- Sincerely, Kris Seiz
"The death of a family member is in itself a tough steak to chew, but when you don't live right around the corner (we actually lived on opposite coasts) it can be all but impossible to swallow. A Dignified Life helped me to quickly and smoothly tie-up some important loose ends, i.e. miscellaneous legal paperwork and preparing a house that's nearly 3,000 miles away to be successfully put on the market; things I just didn't have the time or energy to tackle all by myself. They provided me an inestimable port of solace in an otherwise emotionally roiling sea. Thank you for everything, Barbara!"
