Celebrating Aging Life Care™ Month

May is Aging Life Care™ Month! So what do we means by Aging Life Care? It’s a holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults or others facing health challenges. An Aging Life Care Professional®  is a health and human services specialist who is a guide, advocate, and resource for families caring for an older relative or disabled adult. Working with families, we strive to provide answers at a time of uncertainty. We are dedicated to guiding families toward actions and decisions that ensure quality care and an optimal life for those they love, reducing worry, stress and time off work for family caregivers.

As members of the national Aging Life Care Association® (ALCA), we must meet stringent education, experience, and certification requirements of the organization, and all members are required to adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards of practice.
