My BusinessAs a Geriatric Consultant and ElderCare Specialist I offer comprehensive assessments to determine what are the best options for people to age well. Either for "planners" and proactive older adults or for those already compromised by chronic and debilitating conditions — like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS, and mental illness — I will design a roadmap to help them find their ways through the process of aging well and in place, as much as possible. As the needs of this population grow more complex — especially when there is loss of memory or mobility — you search for meaningful and manageable solutions, and — as you understand the value of staying at home, the power of autonomy and the importance of community to longevity and health — you seek a new model for working with seniors; one that is comprehensive and tailor made to their needs, wants, desires, and reality.
