Thank you soooooo much! 
I felt extremely confident after every session. As I usually get all the information I need and more. Sharman is very knowledgeable on this subject, and answered my questions with certainty. I never doubted that I was on the right track.  If it were not for Sharman's PCH consulting services I am sure I would not have received my permit on my very first attempt. I would recommend anyone venturing
into this business to consult with her for any information they need to get their business going. ~ K.G.



Sharman Lawson helped me by providing the right documents needed for me to pass the audit by DCH.  I will definitely use Sharman Lawson again, because the company is very knowledgeable about PCH's and CLA's. I will refer Sharman Lawson to anyone interested in a PCH and CLA. ~ D.O.


Sharman gave me the tools to be able to pursue my adventure in this environment. She was very easy to talk to and listened attentively. Sharman has a lot of knowledge, and is willing to take what she has learned and experienced to assist others like myself. Thank you for all your assistance. ~ A.W.


I liked Sharman's patience in answering questions. She is polite enough to say, "Am I clear? I know this is a lot of information." That helped a lot, because I felt that she really wanted me to understand, not get me off the phone. Sharman's services are the water in the desert land. ~ R.W.


Sharman's knowledge of the PCH process is evident just from the services she provides. Ranging from forms and documents to actually more involved visitation orientated approach. Her services would be recommended to save time, resources; overall broadening of knowledge in the PCH industry. ~ F.J.

                    BUSINESS CONSULTANT


Personal care homes, group homes, assisted living facilities, and adult day care businesses for adults, the disabled, and elderly are in high demand. 

My name is Sharman G. Lawson. I am a consultant for the care home licensing industry. I've personally owned and operated a personal care home for the elderly and aging.  I've also been a provider and owner of a host home, in my home, for the mentally challenged and developmentally disabled, or MR/DD population. Also, the owner of a state licensed personal care home for the elderly in my home.  

We help people with consulting, coaching, products, and services to start and run a state licensed care home facility or home care agency.   Check out our Consulting Packages that include our  FREE 8-HOUR boot camp training, so clients will have all the tools to start, run, operate, and sustain their care home facility.

Personal care homes, group homes, assisted living residence many times are recommended by physicians, family members, social workers, hospital discharge planners, or even the individual. Many individuals having challenges staying home alone are ideal candidates for this program. Many of the individuals may be a danger to themselves. They may be falling, not taking their medication correctly, missing meals, and not bathing.
